notes

International students who are enrolled at NDSU will not be required to complete a study abroad experience. Instead, students must complete one of the following North American history courses: HIST 382, 421, 422, 423, 424, 425, 429, 431, 434, 436, 437, or 476. This history course will substitute for the BUSN 341 "European Business Environment or equivalent study abroad course" from core requirement group A.

Pre-Business Core Suggestions: While not required, students are encouraged to take either ANTH 111 (Introduction to Anthropology) or COMM 216 (Intercultural Communication) as a general education cultural diversity requirement option. Students will also benefit from taking GEOG 161 (World Regional Geography) as an elective.
