HEC Paris in Paris, France

Program Overview

The McIntire School of Commerce and HEC Paris are offering third-year Commerce students an opportunity to study international business in Paris during the spring semester of students' third year of study.


The curriculum is designed to provide the essentials of the courses you would have taken at McIntire during this semester, so you will not fall behind your classmates who do not study abroad. The skills you develop and the experiences you have in this program will surely be a very valuable part of your total UVA educational experience. HEC course offerings are extensive, and all Commerce students will find a good selection of courses that interest them.

Students registered in the third-year McIntire ICE curriculum at an approved study-abroad program are required to register for at least 12 (U.S.) credits at partner schools, along with 4.5 online credits taught by McIntire faculty. Courses completed at partner schools will be treated as transfer credit on the UVA transcript and must be completed with a C (satisfactory) or better to be eligible for transfer (grades are not transferred). To determine the minimum passing grade for non-U.S. grading scales, McIntire uses the World Education Services (WES) conversion chart.

Students are offered on-campus housing from one of the residence halls or apartments. Single rooms are €450-550, and apartments for two are (€350/person). This monthly charge covers the basic rent, cleaning, and breakfast in the university restaurant. There is a refundable deposit of €450 + €220 (non-refundable) processing fee.
