This fall, 60 students from around the world arrived in Charlottesville, Virginia for the M.S. in Global Commerce program’s second orientation. Originating from 15 different countries and regions, everyone in the Class of 2018 has at least two things in common: a love for adventure and undergraduate backgrounds in business.
Women make up just over 40% of the class, and the amount of work experience students have ranges between 0-2 years. The students, with an average age of 22.5 years, have interned or worked in a broad range of industries, and hope to find jobs in an equally diverse selection of fields.
In case you missed it, The Wall Street Journal published a great article about the M.S. in Global Commerce program last year that also dives deeper into two students’ reasoning for embarking on this journey. Stay tuned for future blog posts as we get to know the current class, talk to professors, and follow the students’ adventures through North America, China, and Europe!
