Recruiting a Diverse Community

At McIntire, we actively recruit students, faculty, and staff who: 

  • Enrich our classrooms through a diversity of thought and experience
  • Challenge assumptions and biases
  • Add to a respectful dialogue about the meaning of success and responsibility as business professionals and leaders

Recruiting Initiatives

EY Diversity Pipeline: Engaging first- and second-year prospective students through a skills development day, networking events, and workshops throughout the year, as well as guidance and support for creating a competitive application, is managed by the Office of Undergraduate Admission.

McIntire Commerce Cohort: The Commerce Cohort, managed by the McIntire Office of Undergraduate Admission, supports a select group of high-achieving, high-need first- and second-year UVA students from underrepresented backgrounds with an academic interest in Commerce. Through cohort-style engagement, the program helps to ensure success by embedding diversity and inclusiveness into student development. After completing the first-year courses, second-year Cohort students have the opportunity to participate in Cohort-exclusive events that facilitate personal exploration and development to build their personal brand, enhance resumes, and deepen their understanding of business.

Meet McIntire: Offered through McIntire’s Graduate Marketing & Admissions Office, “Meet McIntire” is an interactive weekend workshop designed to give college juniors and seniors an opportunity to explore the University of Virginia and gain a holistic view of the M.S. in Accounting Program at McIntire.  Participants learn how to navigate the admissions process; attend a mock graduate class; gain leadership and team-building experience; and get to know the diverse students, faculty, and staff who are an integral part of McIntire's close-knit and diverse community.

The PhD Project: McIntire is a member of The PhD Project, which has a mission "to increase workplace diversity by increasing the diversity of business school faculty who encourage, mentor, support, and enhance the preparation of tomorrow's leaders."
