The UVA McIntire School of Commerce recently caught up with M.S. in Global Commerce alumni Caroline Wimbleton (Allianz Partners, France), Ada Ma (AB inBev, China), and Ewa Granosik (LinkedIn, Ireland) from the Class of 2018 to hear about how they’re leveraging the Program in their global careers today.

Wimbleton: When you live and study with a group as diverse as that of the M.S. in Global Commerce, you become so much more aware of different worldviews. You develop a deep respect for people who challenge your ideas daily, and I think the opportunity is remarkable and rare.
Ma: It taught me to trust people—even if you disagree. The Program offers a fantastic way to collaborate with various people from diverse cultural and geographical backgrounds.
Granosik: Thanks to the M.S. in Global Commerce, I approach teamwork, collaboration, and stakeholder management in a more thoughtful and empathetic way. It makes me a better colleague and a more effective employee.
