UVA Masters in Commerce

The University of Virginia recently announced they are rolling out a new addition to this degree space. This one year degree will be global in nature, allowing students to study at three great universities over the course of the year. You will end the program with two degrees and a certificate from all of these schools.

Those who graduate will earn the following:

  • M.S. in Global Commerce from the University of Virginia’s McIntire School of Commerce;
  • M.S. in Global Strategic Management from ESADE Business School; and
  • Certificate in International Management from Lingnan (University) College at Sun Yat-sen University

Students  will start the program at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Classes will focus on developing global management. After 15 weeks students will then go to Lingnan (University) College in Guangzhou, China, where they will focus on international financing and operations, taking 9 weeks to complete. Finally, the program will conclude with 15 weeks at ESADE in Barcelona, Spain, with a focus on innovation.

I think this will end up being a very interesting and exciting program for students who are looking for a truly unique, international experience.A successful applicant will be academically competitive and will need to be willing to work in multicultural teams in each region during their year of study. You can see the brochure here. I am working to get more information for everyone. Keep checking back!
