Cornell MBAs get STEM-certified
Two Ithaca-based Management Science MBA programs at the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business have received STEM designation, taking the total number of STEM-designated programs at the school to five. The Class of 2021 in both programs will be the first to graduate under this new certification.
Johnson’s portfolio of STEM-designated programs now includes:
Two-Year Management Science MBA
One-Year Management Science MBA
Johnson Cornell Tech MBA: based in New York City
MPS in Management: provides students who have a non-business undergraduate degree with the rigorous business management education of a top MBA program.
MPS in Management – Accounting Specialization
STEM-designated programs are classified as such by the US government for their focus on science and technology. International students on an F-1 visa who pursue one of these programs are eligible for what is known as a STEM OPT (Optional Practical Training) extension, enabling them to work in their field for a total of up to 36 months in the US without an H-1B work visa.
