UCR Business vs. UCSD Econ

<p>Hey guys. I currently attend UC Riverside as a Business Admin major, and got in for UCSD Fall 2010, but I can't make a decision if I should transfer or not. UCSD's closest thing to business is managerial science, which is supposed to be bizecon, but really looks like a lot of econ + math. </p>

<p>I really do want to go to a better school, but it is worth changing my major? I'm on track at UCR and can graduate early, but will an econ degree look better than a business one from UCR, even if I want to pursue business in the future?</p>

<p>Also post your question on the Search & Selection forum, it gets more traffic and your question concerns the schools and majors rather than transferring per se. You might also want to post on the Business Major subforum.</p>

<p>If I were you, I'd stick with UCR's Business program--given that business IS your choice of major. I have friends at UCSD who are taking managerial science, but that is nowhere close to business economics and business. From what I've been told, MS is economics on steroids: more math courses, one financial accounting requirement, and more core requirements. There aren't any business courses offered; however, you can take elective classes at the Rady School of Management as a junior or senior.</p>

<p>Weigh everything out. At UCR, you will (or are) studying your desired field of interest, while at UCSD, the job recruitment rate and alumni network is stronger--regardless of major.</p>

<p>I hope this helps a little.</p>
