MS Supply Chain and Operations Management (MS-SCOM) - Buffalo School of Management


Dear All,

I have recently received an admit from Buffalo School of Management for their MS Supply Chain and Operations Management (MS-SCOM). It is a one year non-STEM program.

should i join this program or would being non-STEM create job issues post graduating since i shall have only one year OPT. I don't have any other admits and none i applied to were STEM certified either.

So can anyone help me understand the job perspective post graduating from Buffalo in MS SCOM? I am seriously contemplating to join UB this fall but at the same time i'm very much worried about OPT constraints.

Request your kind help on the same.

Have you asked Buffalo about placement stats for the program - especially in terms of international students?

My sense is that career support would be rather limited, at least compared to that for a ranked MBA program.

Even an MBA program is non-STEM, though, and many people find a way to land a job during the one-year OPT period. Either way, the main challenge is the fact that after the OPT period, visas are awarded by lottery, and there are more applicants than available visas:

m.legendary,

Why would you apply to any program before making your mind? You would have had some chain of thought when you applied for Buffalo MS-SCOM, did you not know that this program doesn't come under STEM ?

Melissa have given you a very accurate picture. But no one can make the decision for you. you need to decide on your risk taking appetite.

I just got admission offers from Naveen Jindal, Lally school of Management and Silberman school of business, for their full time MS in supply chain management, Fall 2017. All are STEM designated. Could anyone please advise, which one might be the best choice? My post study goal is to work in USA for at least 5 years. I'm from India.
