Fascinated by the Global Commerce Immersion (GCI) courses offered at the McIntire School, some of our fellow M.S. in Accounting classmates enrolled in the study-abroad courses that took place over winter break. Matt McKay and Alex Hong spent time in Hong Kong and Singapore as part of the Asian Financial Capitals course, while Devlin Anes visited Japan and Korea through the Media & Entertainment Industries in East Asia class. The three-credit J-term courses allowed the students to get a sense of the business environment in countries other than the United States.

We hope everyone is having a great winter break so far. Now that it is officially a new year, we are approaching the second half of our M.S. in Accounting program at UVA. This semester should be both exciting and challenging, and we are eager to continue to share our experiences with you!
