Third Year Core Abroad

Hong Kong University
of Science & Technology

Third year McIntire students:
After completing the online Education Abroad Workshop on this website,
apply to the "UVA Commerce: Semester Abroad" program, not to the specific program.

 

Program Overview
The McIntire School of Commerce and Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (HKUST) are offering third-year Commerce students an opportunity to study international business in Hong Kong during the spring semester of students' third year of study. HKUST is one of the top universities in Asia and is located in one of the world's most vibrant cities, Hong Kong. Spread over 150 acres in a beautiful setting in Clear Water Bay, Kowloon, the HKUST campus provides students with a relaxing environment in which to study and grow.

Curriculum
The curriculum is designed to provide the essentials of the courses you would have taken at McIntire during your 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. HKUST 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. 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.
