The Major Program
The Managerial Economics major at UC Davis is a disciplinary program combining strong preparation in microeconomic theory and quantitative methods. It prepares students for the analysis of management and policy issues in business, finance, marketing, production, agriculture, food distribution, natural resources, the environment, resource allocation, and international trade and development. Students specialize in one or more emphases selected from the following:
- Business Economics focuses on the economic aspects of managerial decision-making essential for solving problems in business, management, marketing, and finance.
- International Business Economics explores the economic drivers and policy challenges in the major emerging markets and focuses on how these markets are impacting the world economy.
- Environmental and Resource Economics concentrates on issues related to the use of resources and environmental quality.
- Agribusiness Economics focuses on the economic and policy aspects of production and marketing of foods and fibers.
Students in the Managerial Economics program develop valuable skills and strengths that lead to careers in business and government.

Internships and Career Alternatives. Internships for students in Managerial Economics provide additional career experience, information, and preparation in a variety of business enterprises and governmental agencies.

Managerial Economics majors have established careers in every area of business and industry, including marketing, analysis, consulting, financial services, accounting, entrepreneurship, real estate and government. Many graduates have entered advanced degree programs in business management, accounting, finance, agricultural and resource economics, economics, public policy, and law.
Study Abroad. The Agricultural and Resource Economics department encourages students to complement their Managerial Economics degree with a study abroad experience. Students must seek pre-approval from a Managerial Economics staff advisor for major-related courses. A total of two upper-division courses (maximum four units each) may be applied to major requirements. However, core courses (ARE 100A, 100B, 106, 155, and ECN 101) are excluded. Students are expected to complete ARE 100A and STA 103 prior to taking upper-division classes abroad for the major.
Domestic Institutions. Upper-division coursework taken at other four-year institutions for credit in the major must be reviewed by a Managerial Economics staff advisor.
Graduate Study. Students who meet the admission requirements of Graduate Studies and the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics may pursue studies leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees.
