Third Year Core Abroad &

Fourth Year Semester Abroad


IES Abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina & Santiago, Chile

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 IES Argentina are offering third-year Commerce students an opportunity to study international business in a multi-location program in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Santiago, Chile, during the spring semester of students' third year of study. The program begins with orientation in Buenos Aires, where the first half of the program is held, followed by a weeklong, course-related trip to Peru, and the second half of the program in Santiago. Learn about the accelerated pace of globalization and economic growth in these markets while experiencing two very different cultures, complete with their own distinct institutions, laws, and business practices and cultures. Both serve as models for both the pitfalls and opportunities surrounding economies in transition within the global marketplace.

Curriculum
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. Students must have completed Spanish through the 102 level. A Spanish language immersion course will start the semester abroad before classes begin. 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.

Additional Information
This program is a direct enroll program, with tuition being paid to IES. 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.
