MIT Sloan MBA programs including the Sloan Fellows MBA have received the STEM designation for their International Students. This means that in addition to the usual 12 months of optional practical training (OPT) post-degree work authorization in the US, MIT Sloan MBAs working in STEM eligible jobs can apply for 24 months of “STEM extension” OPT. This provides an ample opportunity for international students to continue to work in the U.S. after graduation. I believe this is a game changer that will put MIT Sloan MBA program well ahead of its peer schools in the eyes of international student.

Yes... still not published officially anywhere on the MIT Sloan's website. Maybe they have more important things to worry about?
