Third Year Core Abroad &
Third year McIntire students:
The McIntire School of Commerce and the University of Auckland are offering third-year Commerce students an opportunity to study international business in Auckland, New Zealand during the spring semester of students' third year of study. The University of Auckland is one of the premier universities in New Zealand. Living and learning in "one of the prettiest places on earth" will be an experience you will never forget.
The curriculum is designed to provide the essentials of the courses you would have taken at McIntire during this semester, so you will not fall behind your classmates who do not study abroad. The skills you develop and the experiences you have in this program will surely be a very valuable part of your total UVA educational experience. Auckland course offerings are extensive, and all Commerce students will find a good selection of courses that interest them.
During the term abroad, students must complete four Auckland offerings, for 12 UVA semester hours. In addition to those four courses, Commerce students must also complete the online UVA-taught Global Strategy and Value Enhancement course, which will result in four UVA credits for COMM 3040 being awarded by McIntire faculty and counting in students' UVA GPA. Each student must complete at least two business courses to equal 9 credits from the course planning list. Those two courses, along with the COMM 3041 online course, will satisfy the spring 9 credit ICE requirements. Additional courses will satisfy appropriate Commerce School or University electives.

NOTE: UVA accepts transfer credit (no grades) for courses taken abroad; however, students must receive a grade of C or better for each course to transfer credit back to UVA.
There are many options for housing in Auckland, including residence halls, family stays, or independent apartments.
