University of California, Merced
Management and Business Economics, B.S.
UC Merced`s Management and Business Economics major responds to the growing demands and needs of the modern business world. The major provides rigorous analytical and quantitative training from a blend of fields including accounting, economics, finance, marketing, and strategy. Today`s managers tackle issues that involve a number of management functions and do not always fit neatly into subject areas. The UC Merced approach is to integrate key ideas and approaches from across subject areas to evaluate and understand all the dimensions of a given issue. Creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship are emphasized.
The Management and Business Economics major prepares students for a broad range of management-related careers. The major reflects the demands of private and public sector organizations for employees who are trained in analytical and quantitative decision-making, who work effectively in teams and on projects, who are comfortable in various cultures, who are `well rounded` in sciences and humanities, and who have learned the art of self-directed learning. The curriculum provides a strong foundation in analysis and problem solving across a wide spectrum of management activities and promotes reasoning skills and critical analysis as required in a modern, volatile business environment. The theoretical underpinning for the undergraduate program comes from business economics and management disciplines that use tools and techniques based on applied mathematics and statistics to solve problems in virtually all areas of business operations. The typical undergraduate student develops skills to build quantitative models of complex operations in competitive and in imperfect markets and be able to use these models to facilitate decision-making.
