At UC San Diego there is a joint major of Economics and Math, but I'm not sure if I'm going to go that route. Anyway, how's the Math for economics? Is it all algebra or will I use geometry, trig, and Calculus?

Start your own firm. Everything else is basically wage slavery.

I'm not a trust fund baby who can just start a company, maintain it, then make it and keep it successful.

Mathematicians are frequently employed in th Econ. field. Econ. can be as mathematical as you want to make it.

> Is it all algebra or will I use geometry, trig, and Calculus?

Conventionally algebra and calculus, statistics, graphical solutions. I can think of uses for trig. off the top of my head though.

If you want to do Econ. I highly recommend pairing with mathematics or physics.

Ok so i plan on getting an economics degree. Is math going to be a problem for me? Just a basic economics degree. Do i need pre calc or is there an alternative? Is there any way around my hatred for math?
>>
>>1070969
One of my close friends is doing this exact major at this exact school. It's tough, if you're not well versed in mathematics you will have a very hard time.
>>
>>1071565

Basically this. I suck at math, but I am well on my way to completing my Econ degree at the University of Michigan. Most math is basic. Most econ programs require you to take Calc, but my school doesn't. It does, however, require statistics. All in all, there is relatively little applied mathematics in undergraduate economics.

Just reread your post, OP. If you're talking about the joint major, I have no idea and ignore everything I said.
>>
>>1071799

Oh. I'm pretty mediocre at Math. Most Math I had was differential Equations and I am more of a plug and chug kind of guy.

Speaking of UCSD, how is their international business degree program? I applied for transfer there. I'd like to go to the school but I'm thinking an actual business school degree in a specialized field like information systems would be better, from say UCR.

Oh. PS: Learn. to. fucking. code.

Most Economists are excel/stata monkeys.

If you learn to code in Python, or R (mathematics majors will probably teach you matlab), you will be be far more employable.

UCSD has high academics, but seriously fuck that school. It's a soul-sucking environment. I would rather have done a math major at any CSU.

how was it bad for you anon?

Economics can be as mathematical as you make it. As some say here, many just use excel. At the other end, Ph.D. in math quants are using all kinds of stochastic methods and pdes and machine learning shit that will make your eyes water. That's why they make 300k starting
