Majoring in Business
Member since 3/4/2013
UCLA is very involved in athletics. As you may already know we have a very big rivalry against USC. Their are always very good turnouts when it comes to games especially the ones against USC. Every year before the UCLA-USC football game they had different rallies to help motivate our players. It is a very good experience.
Being a student at UCLA definately challenges you to well in your classes when there are certain GPA requirements to get into the major but I do enjoy it. If it was easy to get into the major than it definately wouldn't be viewed as prestigious as it is now. There is a lot of workload but it only benefits us as students. There are a wide variety of internship and job opportunities offered to us as students. Recruiters from the Big Four companies frequently come to the campus to recruit Business economics or Accounting majors. They are very good opportunities because these businesses are very highly ranked.
Business Economics is a very popular major but also very competitive. I would definitely stick with it because although it is very hard, it is something that pays off in the future. Business is always going to be needed and it is very broad. You can go into many different field with business economics such as Accounting, Marketing, Finance, Auditing, Real Estate, etc.
To get into business economics can be somewhat challenging. GPA is largely taken into consideration. You have to receive at least a 3.0 GPA and receive certain grades for some of the pre-major classes. If you are not already in the major you have to take the pre-major classes and once that is done, you have to petition to be admitted into the major.
