McIntire’s Integrated Core Experience (ICE), the curriculum required of all third-year students, is designed to offer students a comprehensive skill-set that will enable them to meet the challenges of the business world. The two-semester program is composed of 12 credit hours in the fall and nine credit hours in the spring.
McIntire offers five concentrations—functional or specialized areas of study—to its undergraduate students. Students must complete one concentration to fulfill degree requirements, but may complete two.
McIntire offers its undergraduate students six tracks that help prepare them to address the complex, multidisciplinary issues businesses face today. As opposed to concentrations, tracks allow students to focus on topics that cross and integrate disciplines, augmenting their concentration coursework.
McIntire offers a Leadership Minor to undergraduate students throughout the University. This initiative allows students to develop intellectual depth in their chosen fields of study while enhancing their contributions within these fields through the effective exercise of leadership.
The Entrepreneurship Minor provides an education in and experience with the tools, techniques, and transformations involved in new venture development (e.g., ideation and innovation, team building, product-market fit, financial and social return, and legal dynamics). Hosted by McIntire, the minor brings together entrepreneurship efforts across multiple schools at the University of Virginia through a coordinated curriculum.
