Undergrad in Economics and Finance; aiming for MQF Waterloo and MMF at UofT

Hi,
I have an undergraduate degree in Economics and Finance from Pakistan and I am aiming to get into MQF at Waterloo or MMF at UofT.
I understand that my undergraduate degree was not too quantitative/mathematical. Therefore, I would have to take undergraduate math courses as a non-degree student to be competitive for the program.
What I am concerned with is that what courses should I take? I can't do another undergrad altogether so I have to take courses that make me competitive enough to get into the program.
While MMF is more applied than MQF, which is more theoretical. Should I take more applied math courses or pure math courses?
Can someone please guide me as to which undergrad math courses should I take that will make me eligible for both the programs?
I am personally more inclined towards MQF because it is not only affordable but also sets a solid background for PhD.
Looking forward to getting help on this.
