How good is the economics program?

<p>How good is the economics program at Berkeley? I will be applying to Haas, but in case I don't get in I will be majoring in economics..</p>

<p>As for job prospects, how good are they for economics majors for jobs in the business field, particularly finance?</p>

<p>Cal econ is very...very good. Your job prospects with a BA though? You'll probably get very good entry level jobs like a lot of the other top schools. That's the joy of a world saturated with graduate degrees.</p>

<p>Great department though!</p>

<p>bump........</p>

<p>where does UCLAri attend college?</p>

<p>Give it some thought. :p</p>

<p>i'm being thrown off by your "ucla" name, but you post quite often on the uc berkeley board.</p>

<p>Well, I plan on attending grad school, so I've looked quite a bit into grad programs at Cal (naturally.) That, and I don't think that the "Cal board" or "UCLA board" borders are as rigid as some suggest. If I can offer insight into an issue pertaining to Cal, I will.</p>

<p>I believe that 99% of all of Cal's grad programs, and its undergrad, are world class, so it's not hard for me to rah rah it up here. :)</p>

<p>These rankings are for graduate programs, but those will be a good reflection of their undergrad programs. Berkeley is #1 in the UCs.
