Top STEM MBA Programs

In big part for my own sake to keep track of all the MBA programs that have recently been STEM-designated and STEM-certified, I wanted to put together a master list with links to confirming the designation/requirements that students may have. Keep in mind that a number of programs (almost all) allows to take extra classes and get an extra MS degree to receive the STEM certification but often that requires an extra year and cost. In these cases, the MBA programs alone are sufficient to provide you with the STEM designation.

STEM MBA Programs:




Why is STEM Important?

STEM designation is really only important to international applicants who are subject to work permit requirements and would need an H1B to stay in the United States after their OPT (Optional Practical Training) expires. STEM allows applicants to get a 3-year OPT instead of the 1-Year which in turn allows a much longer time-frame to find a job and provide applicants with 4 opportunities to get an H1B instead of just 2, so it doubles the chances and buys time in other words.

Just received an email

"We are excited to share the news that our Cornell Two-year Ithaca MBA and One-year Ithaca MBA programs have received STEM designation! The STEM designation recognizes the emphasis that our residential MBA programs place on training our students in management science, data analytics, technology, and other similar disciplines integral to contemporary business leadership.

The STEM designation approval also allows international students on an F-1 visa who pursue one of these programs to apply for STEM OPT (Optional Practical Training) extension, enabling them to work in their field for a total of up to 36 months in the U.S.

We’re thrilled to be able to offer our students a curriculum that has a strong analytical foundation and opportunities to pursue coursework in engineering, computer science, and other STEM-related disciplines, as well as courses at our Cornell Tech campus. We continue to invest in the experience of our MBA students and are pleased to see these opportunities recognized - it's a very exciting time to be part of the Johnson and Cornell communities!

If we can be helpful with answering any questions, please don't hesitate to be in touch."

Darden has STEM designation for Management Science Specialization - https://www.darden.virginia.edu/mba/aca ... entrations
Stern and Cornell have Tech MBAs that are STEM designated if that counts.

Columbia has informed that all of their programs, including EMBAs, are now Stem-designated

does anyone know about IBEAR at USC, the MIT Sloan program and the MSX at Stanford?

Stanford MBA STEM classification is in progress, but not sure if STEM is a good fit for MSx.

Stanford would have to reduce electives and increase quant courses for MSx program to classify it as STEM, which is not appealing to everyone. MSx cohort is more experienced so we care more about electives, industry-specific deep dives, and soft-skills rather than how to calculate quant stuff.

Thanks so much for your input. Most BSchools have skirted the issues you brought up by offering a STEM track that those interested could pursue without impacting the base of the students. But sounds like there may not be enough overall demand to warrant a big effort.

PS. I feel eventually all MBA degrees will have a STEM track/option.

Even though it's a joint degree program, I would add Kellogg MMM to the list. This is a good pathway for STEM for MBA students, especially inventors, entrepreneurs, innovators. The MS in Design creates the eligibility for STEM and 2 more years of OPT.

Hi bb,

The W.P Carey MBA at ASU is a STEM certified program now. I heard at their webinar and it doesn’t require any specialization. The MBA as a whole is stem certified.

Thank you! I can confirm from their site - they just announced it late last week it seems: https://asunow.asu.edu/20200326-asu%E2% ... ba-program

Great they were able to secure it and get it just in time for the new incoming year.
I have updated the list.

P.S. Sad the Carey has falled down to #35 in the rankings...

Yeah but their operations and logistics management specialty was ranked 3rd best in the country and jumped two spots this year. They are known for this specialty and the fact I like the most about them is that approximately 70% of their students are recruited from campus recruiting events. That’s a great news because Arizona can be far away from the scene when it comes to networking and such.

I was surprised they fell in their rankings too but I’m glad that my area of specialization is still very good!

Thanks! I did not know that. That's good. Good for them!
I think they are most well-known for their free tuition program :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :inlove:

WSJ posted an article today about STEM MBA programs (may require a subscription)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/m-b-a-prog ... 1580898601

Though it did not really have any great new insights about STEM, it did have a bit of stats and info:
Quote:
About one-quarter of the roughly 800 U.S. business-school programs tracked by GMAC in 2019 reported themselves as STEM-certified. Last year those programs were more likely to have expanded their pool of international applicants, with 43% of STEM-certified programs reporting more foreign applications than the prior year, compared with 26% of non-STEM business programs.
