Third Year Core Abroad
Third year McIntire students:
The McIntire School of Commerce and University of St. Gallen are offering third-year Commerce students an opportunity to study international business in Switzerland during the spring semester of students' third year of study.
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. St. Gallen 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.
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.
No on-campus housing is available, but the housing office locates housing for exchange students if requested and for a fee.
Students may arrange housing on their own by using the online housing market.
Additional InformationThis program is an exchange program, with tuition being paid to UVA. 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 program can be found on the St. Gallen website.
