    Berkeley econ is tops. I would say UCLA comes in second. You might be interested in their bizecon program.

    In what way? Recruiting for careers? Admission to graduate economic programs? Undergraduate research? (There are no rankings for these things and you should just research it independently)

    For graduate economic programs:

    1. UCB
    2. UCLA
    3. UCSD

    If you don't get into Berkley or UCLA then the best graduate economic program of the three you mentioned is UC San Diego.

    San Diego's econ department is actually very strong in Econometrics, particulatily Time Series/Forecasting....
