Poets & Quants, on online news site devoted to the coverage of business schools, recently proclaimed the master’s programs the University of Virginia’s McIntire School of Commerce may be “the most globally oriented in the United States.”
Every program has a global immersion component ranging from one week to over 20 weeks, where students travel, live, and learn together abroad. McIntire forms partnerships with companies and universities across the world to offer industrial expertise and new perspectives. This integrated global component helps students better navigate workplace complexities in today’s increasingly global economy.
As Peter Maillet, Associate Dean for Global Affairs and Director of the McIntire Center for Global Commerce simply stated, “The inputs that go into business — the resources, financial capital, labor, and knowledge capital — are all inherently global. The global financial system, in other words, is a completely global thing.”
Dylan Fogarty (M.S. in Commerce 2016) echoes the sentiment, saying “his global experience was invaluable to him in his current position as director of client services at New York City-based Decoded.” Fogarty travels extensively for his job and was recently in London, Frankfurt, Germany, and Brazil. He saw the M.S. in Commerce as an opportunity “to get out there, see the world, and then especially see how that relates to business.”
