Why did you choose UVA’s M.S. in Commerce Program? When I graduated in December, I started searching for my next step. When I received an email from the M.S. in Commerce Program, I knew the program was perfect for me. The ability to add business experience and knowledge to my social science major is such an amazing opportunity.

What do you enjoy about the program so far? So far, I am really enjoying how interactive all the classes are. The subject matter is truly interconnected, which makes every day feel seamless and the learning enjoyable.

What has surprised you about the program so far? The schedule has definitely surprised me the most. It is very different from undergrad and days, are never the same.
