If yes, will I still be eligible for a two-year extension on the initial one-year Optional Practice Training (OPT) period? (STEM-MBA)

Is the Business Analytics and Management Science’ concentration at UNC STEM designated?
And if yes, will the combination count as Stem?

Is UNC Mba even STEM? i find no such information on their website.
But according to multiple sources online ( one being https://poetsandquants.com/2019/12/18/u ... hool-news/ ) the Business Analytics and Management Science concentration is said to be Stem designated

I find it weird that there are news articles of STEM designation but the school itself is not actively promoting that fact. Will be interesting to hear from current students or Alumni.

KENAN FLAGLER has STEM designation for only one concentration - Business Analytics & Management Science.
This is mentioned in the Academics page on its website.

I guess they haven't cleaned up the website yet. They thought they did but they didn't and as someone said they're trying to get it by Jan 2021

They sent out an email mentioning the situation with STEM designation. But haven't updated the website yet it seems.

Re: Calling UNC Kenan-Flagler MBA Applicants: 2021 Intake | Class of 2023 [#permalink]
We are writing to share a recent development specific to our Business Analytics and Management Science (BAMS) concentration. In December, the University informed UNC Kenan-Flagler that the concentration as a second major qualified for STEM designation. We recently learned that the UNC System deemed that the second major with a STEM designation had been granted prematurely. We have been working hard since then to get the qualification approved. However, we were recently told that we should not expect approval by the UNC System before January 2021.

This change does not alter the awarding of the BAMS concentration. However, our concentration in Business Analytics and Management Science is not currently approved as a STEM-designated second major and is not eligible for a two-year extension of optional practical training (OPT), which is particularly important to our international students and recent graduates.

We are fully committed to engaging in the approval process in early 2021 with the hope that all UNC Kenan-Flagler students completing this concentration are equipped with the additional STEM designation. We are working closely with University and System stakeholders so that when approved, the designation will apply retroactively. Given that current rules permit application for the STEM-OPT two-year extension up to one year after graduation, our hope is that once approved as a second major, all BAMS MBA graduates from 2020 and 2021, should still be able to qualify for the STEM-OPT extension.

Our commitment to establishing this STEM-designated major is both strong and unchanged. Our concentration in Business Analytics and Management Science continues to be an integral component of our MBA curriculum. We understand you may have questions and concerns, and we will share updates as we receive them.

Sincerely,

Melissa Hlavac, Associate Dean of MBA Programs
Brad Staats, Associate Dean of MBA Programs

For those who got invites, what does your application status say? I haven’t gotten an invite but was wondering if the status should change to reviewed or something.

Mine still says submitted.
