Global Commerce Immersion Courses

Our Global Commerce Immersion (GCI) courses combine on-Grounds coursework with a short-term study-abroad experience. These programs take place over January term, spring break, or May term, and in most cases are open to all University of Virginia students.

Explore global commerce firsthand.

GCIs are 3-credit courses taught by McIntire faculty and open to Commerce students and other UVA majors. Course formats offer regional travel and either project-based work or executive briefings with industry experts. Faculty have offered courses around the world, including to Kenya, Israel, Argentina, India, Australia, and Nepal, studying topics ranging from conservation finance, entrepreneurship, and consumption to social and technology innovation.

The courses are subject to change.

Students interested in participating in a GCI (including UVA students not enrolled at McIntire) should schedule an appointment with a Global Programs Adviser to learn more.
