- Bachelor of Science
Managerial economics is a dynamic degree that prepares students for a variety of careers in business and beyond. The major goes beyond the limits of traditional economics and business. Students gain a thorough grounding in economic theory and practical business applications. They cultivate skills in quantitative methods, problem-solving strategies, critical thinking and effective communication that lead to promising careers.
Managerial economics students can select from four areas of specialization:
- Business economics, which focuses on analysis, finance and management of business activities
- International business economics, which explores the economic drivers and policy challenges in the major emerging markets
- Environmental and resource economics, which concerns issues related to environmental quality and the use of resources
- Agribusiness economics, which focuses on the business aspects of producing and marketing foods and fibers
Study begins with a series of preparatory courses in economics, calculus, statistics, accounting, business law and computer science. Five required upper-division core classes in intermediate micro- and macro-economics, econometrics and quantitative analysis provide a solid foundation for all students in this major. Another 32 units of restricted electives, chosen from a wide variety of course offerings, completes the remaining major requirements.
