Third Year Core Abroad &
Third year McIntire students:
The McIntire School of Commerce and the Danish Institute for Study Abroad (DIS) are offering third-year Commerce students an opportunity to study International Business in Copenhagen, Denmark during the spring semester of students' third year of study. The DIS program, with its rigorous, practical business curriculum, is highly respected around the world as a leader in "study abroad" programs since 1959.
The curriculum is designed to provide the essentials of the courses taken at McIntire during the spring 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. DIS course offerings are extensive, and all Commerce students will find a good selection of courses that interest them.
Students registered in the third-year McIntire ICE curriculum at an approved study-abroad program are required to register for at least 12 (U.S.) credits at partner schools, along with 4.5 online credits taught by McIntire faculty. Each student must complete "Doing Business in the EU" at DIS to satisfy 3 credits of ICE and at least one additional business course. Those two courses, along with the COMM 3051 online course, will satisfy the spring ICE requirements. Additional courses will satisfy appropriate Commerce School or University electives. Courses completed at partner schools will be treated as transfer credit on the UVA transcript and must be completed with a C (satisfactory) or better to be eligible for transfer (grades are not transferred). To determine the minimum passing grade for non-U.S. grading scales, McIntire uses the World Education Services (WES) conversion chart.
For more information, view our course planning information.
Students must attend the McIntire information session and complete the online Education Abroad Workshop on this site. Students should then complete the online "UVA Commerce: Semester Abroad" application on this site.
Students can choose between living with a Danish family, in a Kolleqium (dorm), in a privately arranged apartment with roommates or in a shared apartment with Danish roommates.
Additional InformationThis program is a direct enroll program, with tuition being paid to DIS. Students participating in this program will be responsible for the UVA Study Abroad Administrative Fee during the semester abroad. Detailed information about this fee can be found in the online Education Abroad Workshop.
When studying abroad all UVA students are required to have both basic international health coverage and emergency assistance coverage through the UVA-sponsored plan with CISI. See the Insurance page on this website for more information about requirements. Additional information and details about the DIS, Copenhagen program can be found on the DIS Web site.
