(AP) - Students will have several ways to fulfill the requirement.
Besides traditional study-abroad programs, they can choose a short-term program between semesters or take a course that includes a foreign component.
A faculty group pushed for the requirement as a way to make sure students understand that global business is a reality.
Group member Kevin Upton says it's a way to give Minnesota students a broader perspective "outside of the 494/694 loop."
MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with Upton about the new requirement.
