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.
During the term abroad, students must complete four DIS 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 "Doing Business in the EU" to satisfy 3 credits of ICE and at least one additional business course from the course planning list to satisfy the final 3 credits of ICE. 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.
For more information, view our course planning information.
Note: UVA accepts transfer credit (no grades) for these courses. However, students must received a grade of C or better for each course to transfer back to UVA.
Students must attend the McIntire information session and complete the online Education Abroad Workshop on the www.studyabroad.virginia.edu website. Students may then complete the online "UVA Commerce: Semester Abroad" application available on the ISO website.
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.
All UVA students are required to have both basic international health coverage and emergency assistance coverage when studying abroad. See the Insurance page on the ISO website for more information about requirements. Additional information and details about the DIS, Copenhagen program can be found on the DIS Web site.
