The intent of BUSN 341 is to ensure that students participate in a study abroad experience that includes an academic component related to the country where the study abroad takes place. In addition to BUSN 341, a student may take a Study Tour (Prefix 379) which is an NDSU faculty directed experience or field study in a foreign country, or BUSN 394: Individual Study (Global Business Environment) or BUSN or UNIV 492. If students complete a BUSN/UNIV 492 study abroad experience, which requires the student to study abroad for at least 12 weeks at an international institution, as part of this experience, at least one course must be approved by business faculty to satisfy 3 credits. A substitution form will be necessary to file the study abroad credit with the Office of Registration and Records.
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 "Global Business Environment or equivalent study abroad course" in the program requirement.
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.
