    I don't, sorry. Have you tried searching yourself, or posting in another forum? Around here, you'll probably only get people telling you to go to some Ivy or top UC.

    Although I am a little biased, I am going to go ahead and say UChicago has the best undergrad econ program hands down.

    The reason for that statement is this: Many of our professors earned their PhDs from various institutions - Princeton, Harvard, Berkeley etc. All of them tell us how much more rigorous the program here is compared to undergrad programs from their doctoral schools.

    Otherwise, the other top programs, in no particular order:
    MIT
    Stanford
    Princeton

    I don't Cal necessarily has a good undergrad econ program - most kids looking into business go to Haas to earn a degree in business.

    I think the difference in other top schools is marginal, meaning this shouldn't be a driving factor for you.

    I hear Cal State Los Angeles has one of the best regional economics programs in Southern California in the country if you're looking for an entry-level position at a non-prestigious bank or credit union.

    Look at the graduate rankings. They're somewhat representative.
