Accounting minor?

<p>anyone know if davis has accounting minor? is davis’ econ major even good?</p>

<p>edit: oh and uh…what’s the difference between econ and managerial econ? when i was filling it out on my application i didn’t even notice the managerial econ. haha.</p>

<p>Compared to other schools, Davis is lacking in undergraduate business programs. There is no accounting minor. The econ major is good from what I hear and it's identical to managerial econ (a ton of overlap classes), except managerial econ is more in depth and also teaches about management. You also can't double major in econ and m.econ</p>

<p>Managerial Economics will net you a B.S. while Economics will net you a B.A. For Managerial Econ you will have extra science based GE's, while those earning an Econ degree will have a language requirement. They are in different schools. The prerequisites for Managerial Econ are more numerous and difficult than for Econ. There is a minimum GPA required in prerequisite classes to be admitted into Managerial Econ and there are fewer students in the major. Managerial Econ is more quantitative and has a business focus. The students coming out of the Managerial Econ program are known by employers to have very solid quantitative abilities.</p>

<p>Collegemom16, I know you're trying to help but but you have no idea what you're talking about.</p>

<p>For Managerial Economics, there is a cutoff GPA-wise and students are accepted into the major following the completion of specific classes (Financial Accting, Managerial Accting, Elementary Statistics, and at least 2 Calculus classes, possibly more I don't remember). Managerial economics requires you to take a lot of random agriculture classes (e.g. Range Science, Ag Science)...c'mon are you serious?</p>

<p>Economics on the other hand, does not have the GPA requirement but there's still some random classes.</p>

<p>Ultimately, does it affect what kind of job you get? No.
How do I know this? I did a junior-year summer internship at a Big 4 Accounting firm and received a job offer for 55k first year, I was a economics major (3.9 gpa) but there were other students from UC Davis who were managerial economics majors. It really doesn't matter. There was even a pre-med major.</p>

<p>All accounting cares about is: you complete a certain number of accounting related credits for the CPA exam(which are NOT available at UC Davis). The CPA exam is the Certified Public Accountant exam. UC Davis only has 3 accounting courses: Financial Accounting, Managerial Accounting, and Tax accounting. There are ways to earn these credits, 1. UC Berkeley Extension over the summer or online, 2. CSU Sacramento Extension (you need to drive/bus there).</p>

<p>For More Information look into:
Ernst & Young (recruits at UC Davis!)
PricewaterhouseCoopers (recruits at UC Davis!)
Deloitte & Touche (recruits at UC Davis!)
KPMG (recruits at UC Davis!)
CPA - Certified Public Accountant
MST - Masters in Tax (for the tax department)</p>

<p>Best of luck.</p>

<p>ilikeoranges you are working off of old information. The agricultural requriements are no longer in place. You have a choice to specialize in Social, Natural, or Agricultural Science. I guess I don't know what I'm talking about despite the fact that my d is a current Managerial Economics major. Aren't you at NYU now?</p>

<p>Major Requirements for a B.S. in Managerial Economics:
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. </p>

<p>The major in Managerial Economics (formerly Agricultural and Managerial Economics) teaches students to apply economics and quantitative principles to problems in agricultural production, management, marketing, finance, trade, futures and options, environment and development.</p>

<p>The Program. Each student must specialize in at least one of three options: agricultural economics, which focuses on topics related to the production and marketing of foods and fibers; environmental and resource economics, which focuses on issues related to use of resources and environmental quality; or managerial economics, which focuses on topics related to evaluating, financing, and managing business activities. </p>

<p>The prerequisites are:
Economics 1A and 1B, 8 units
Statistics 13, 4 units
Mathematics 16A, and 16B or 21A and 21B, 6-8 units
You currently need a 2.8 GPA in these prerequisites but as of Fall 08 the GPA will change to a 3.2 to be admitted into the Managerial Economics major.</p>

<p>Total Units for the BS Degree in Managerial Economics 180. 41-44 of those units are unrestricted. </p>

<p>Total Units for the BA Degree in Economics 61-64 units.</p>

<p>The Program. Economics majors complete an introductory course sequence in economics, in addition to several courses in quantitative methods. Intermediate theory and economic history are taken on the upper division level and then students are free to concentrate the remainder of their units in various areas of interest, including more courses in economic theory or history, international economics, labor, industry, alternative economic systems, economic development, public finance, econometrics, or mathematical economics. </p>

<p>Preparatory Subject Matter total units 17-20
Economics 1A-1B, 8 units
Statistics 13, 32, or 102, 3-4 units
Mathematics 16A-16B, or 21A-21B, 6-8 units</p>

<p>You need a 2.0 overall UC GPA and a 2.0 overall GPA in the classes taken toward the major. If you are undeclared, you must declare the major before you reach 90 units. If you are declared in another major, you must switch before you reach 135 units. </p>

<p>Current undergraduate enrollment at UCD
Managerial Economics 442
Economics 875</p>

<p>thank you collegemom16. I am currently at my 2nd semester at NYU's Stern School of Business as a junior.</p>

<p>The difference between Man. Econ and Econ is really no big deal.</p>

<p>Man Econ is suppose to "apply economics and quantitative principles to problems in agricultural production, management, marketing, finance, trade, futures and options, environment and development." but of my friends who were mostly Man. Econ I saw very little difference if any at all. Maybe a very very little prestige coming from being a Man. Econ vs. Econ major?</p>

<p>I remember my Personal Fin. classs with professor Johnson. He had absolutely no idea what the hell he was talking about. I asked him how I could get an investment bank job coming out of UC Davis, and he told me I needed a bunch of people (he thought I was talking about a hedge fund). Does professor Johnson characterize all Man. Econ professors? No. If anything, I think professor Constantine is one of the most interesting economics professors at UC Davis (he teaches some of the undergrad man.econ economics courses). I'm simply saying that many of these applied fields (finance, options, trading, etc) one should have first hand experience in the industry, which most Man. Econ professors at UC Davis do NOT have, before they teach. IMO, it'd be best to learn about economics, you can still take a few man. econ electives!!, and good a good base of understanding about economics as opposed to getting a quasi-business degree which in reality is an economics degree with a few "business-like" classes added on, I think I only saw 1 finance class when I was enrolled at UC Davis!
Honestly, experience of professors is SO important to your understanding, why not learn from professors who have published dozens of papers/books in economics (which UC Davis has!!).
I remember I took Intro to Computer Science (which is basically information technology) which I wasn't allowed to transfer to my new university. Now I'm taking it, and boy is it incredibly different! The professor has over 15 patents, his company for renting disposable DVDs was recently bought out by another firm, so he has serious hands-on experience and thus the learning environment is just so incredible different than what I had before. Also, Business Law. I can honestly say Business Law with an actual lawyer who lives on the Upper East Side (one of the most expensive real estate locations in the world) is absolutely incredible...and difficult!! What I'm trying to say is, if you want a good education, take classes where the professors know what they're doing (maybe there's a few that have done actual business instead of just publish papers). But most professors have only been researching so it is much preferred to learn economics, econometrics, statistics, and other theoretical ideas from them since you will gain the most that way.</p>

<p>Another thing to take into consideration. This didn't affect me since I didn't take a substantial number of upper-level courses (I only did Intro Macro/Micro, Intermed Macro/Micro), but the caliber of many of the students within each major. Simply put, the average kid doing an econ major is not as smart as a kid doing man econ major, and I really doubt employers know this or care (they only care about you). However, this means that you can probably do better vs the other kids especially in a curved class. Just a thought.</p>
