- ABOUT US
The managerial economics major at UC Davis goes beyond the limits of traditional economics and business majors, blending a thorough grounding in economic theory with business knowledge and applications. You will specialize in at least one of three options: managerial economics, which focuses on evaluating, financing and managing business activities; environmental and resource economics, which focuses on issues related to use of resources and environmental quality; or agricultural economics, which focuses on the business aspects of producing and marketing foods and fibers. The real-world focus of this major provides ideal preparation for transition into the business world or to postgraduate business administration programs.
Managerial economics majors from UC Davis have entered careers in every area of business and industry, including marketing, analysis, consulting and financial service. They work with organizations such as Apple Computer, Deloitte & Touche, Bogle Vineyards and Pacific Bell. Many have also become entrepreneurs, launching businesses in areas as diverse as real estate and magazine publishing. Others have entered advanced degree programs in business management, resource planning and law.
You will begin your study with a series of core courses in management, economics, calculus and statistics, and either social, natural or agricultural sciences. You will then focus your studies on your specific area of interest, selecting courses in topics such as marketing, taxation, international commodity and resource markets, the role of government in business regulation, real estate and other investments. Many students choose to challenge themselves by enrolling in an honors senior seminar, where they develop projects on areas of personal interest (recent topics have included "The Effects of Tobacco PAC Contributions on Tobacco Legislation" and "What Drives Internet Sales?").
