Admitted Students

Welcome to the M.S. in Global Commerce Class of 2021!

What’s next?  An information packet with important program details will be sent late May to all incoming students. Virtual coursework for the program begins Aug. 3, and the required in-person orientation in Charlottesville starts Aug. 30.

Who do I contact now?  The Graduate Programs Office consists of experts in recruitment, admissions, and student life. Once your deposit has been submitted, our student life team members will provide guidance on your experience in the program. You will have three primary administrative contacts for the program, with close collaboration between the University of Virginia, Lingnan (University) College, and Esade Business School.

For the University of Virginia, your primary resource will be Angie Turner and her colleagues, who specialize in enhancing the student experience. As you prepare for the program, this team will provide information related to housing, course enrollment, and key resources for your experience. If you need a student visa to study in the United States, you will receive an additional communication from our admissions team.
