Selective Major

Transfer Students

For the best opportunity for transferability into the Managerial Economics undergraduate major, it is recommended for students to follow the UC Transfer Pathways curriculum for Business Administration. In addition to the courses listed under the Transfer Pathways, it is recommended to also complete Business Law (ARE 18, 4 units) and Computer Applications (PLS 21, ECS 10 or 15, 3-4 units). Beginning for fall 2021 admission, transfer candidates must complete coursework comparable to the following UC Davis courses with a C- or higher to be admitted into the Managerial Economics major:

  • Calculus (MAT 16A/B/C or MAT 17A/B or MAT 21A/B)
  • Microeconomics (ECN 1A)
  • Macroeconomics (ECN 1B)
  • Statistics (STA 13)

Change of Major

Current UC Davis students looking to change their major to Managerial Economics must meet with a staff advisor to create an academic study plan and need to submit a change of major petition. Before a change of major will be approved, students must be in good academic standing (UC GPA of 2.0 or better) and need to have completed the full Calculus series (MAT 16A/B/C or MAT 17A/B or MAT 21A/B), Elementary Statistics (STA 13), Principles of Microeconomics (ECN 1A), and Principles of Macroeconomics (ECN 1B). All of these courses require a C- or higher grade.
