I need help with selecting a class for next year. No, not next semester, but for next year. To get into my school that I am planning on transfering to, we need to take Microeconomics and/or Macroeconomics. If I have to do one or the other, which one does everyone suggest taking? What does each cover? I can say I hated Economics, so is this any easier or harder than the basic Economics?

The major I am looking to get into is Sports Management. Any help would be appreciated.

I hope you plan on going to law school if you're doing Sports Management.

I took both and Micro was much easier in my opinion.

Quoted for truth. As someone who works in sports, sports management is an absolutely worthless career.

Frankly, there's no reason why you shouldn't take both (or why your school doesn't require both). Both shouldn't be much harder than your average college gen ed class.

Take Macro. That's what I took. I barely paid attention and made a B.

I enjoyed micro more than macro, but it really depends on your professor.

haha......unless you have connections law or business school is the way to go. I probably wont even go into sports. International Business is what I really want to do so I am going to get my MBA in IB in Rome. SPM was a good excuse to mess around and have fun for 4 years tho and build a beastly GPA.

Macro is the broad study. Take that.

Do Finance or Economics. International Business will get you no where.

I'm probably going to be going to law school too.



Take Macro. I've done both and Macro was much easier.

Took Macro first with an awful professor, was rough at first but kinda figured it out at the end. Pulled a low B.

Took Micro second with another awful professor, went to class half the time and didn't study... Pulled an A. Granted, it help that I already had taken Macro.

Macro is a little more theory in my eyes, I liked Micro because it was more specific.

I thought I'd like Macro because of the broadness, but I ended up getting pretty bored of it. I've heard both bad and good things about Micro. I've been told it was boring and tedious, but I know an Econ major who likes Micro a lot better and taking it in high school made him interested in the subject.

I found Micro to be much easier at every level that I studied it.

Neither is exactly riveting stuff so that is probably the main reason to pick either especially given you hope to transfer and good grades will never hurt that.

Sports Management is that degree that sounds like it will be awesome but basically has no real world application, be careful with that one.

Aren't alot of people in sports management positions either 1) former players and coaches or 2) from law school anyways?

I hear micro is easier. I took AP Macro my senior year in HS first semester but the AP test is in May so I forgot everything and it was the only AP test I didn't pass. I then took Macro my first year in college and got over a 100% so I would pick whatever you did in your first economics class if you're going for the grade.

If you have any common sense economics should be really easy be it macro or micro.
