For many years, I have been wondering how the government allocate and distribute its human, land and other resources to run the country. I have often been curious about the nature of competition, role of prices, functions of the market, effects of government regulations and programs on the business sectors as well as the effects of international trading on the flow of our currency. I have often thought that since people make daily choices with regards to the use of their resources to satisfy their wants, needs and desires; then the business climate is highly influenced by human behavior.
However, such assumption is insufficient to fully understand the flow of business and its effect on the economy. I need to study some economic models to understand why things happen the way they do. To satisfy my hunger to learn about the intricacies of economics, I have decided to take a Bachelors degree in Economics in the University of California Davis. As I go through the Economics major program offered in UC-Davis, I was impressed with the roster of faculty members and lecturers and their contributions to the university and to our society.
The program is carefully designed to equip students with solid theoretical foundations and knowledge of financial concepts. It also develops student’s analytical abilities in preparation for their career in business, government, investment and other government agencies. The internship opportunities are remarkable. It is rare to have a chance to work with government organizations in Washington, D. C. for one quarter and to have exposures in banks, brokerages and other business enterprises.
The excellent academic and internship program and the flexibility of the major offered at the University of California-Davis will prepare me for a career in management and a position either in some government agencies or private sectors. I would like to specialize in international economics and study the effect of the flow of capital on the exchange rates across international borders. After obtaining a Bachelors degree in Economics, I intend to further my studies by taking a graduate study in business administration.
