Wisconsin Business School Earns STEM Designation

WBS becomes the first business school to earn this designation

The Wisconsin School of Business has become the first business school in the country to earn a STEM designation from the US Department of Homeland Security, according to a press release from the school. 

The Department of Homeland Security offers a 24-month work visa to international students who graduate from US programs that have earned this STEM, or science, technology, engineering, and math, designation. Most programs with the STEM designation focus on science and engineering; the WSB programs that earned this label are its operations and technology management and supply chain management MBA specializations. 

In May 2016, the Department of Homeland Security extended the previous 17-month STEM work visa to 24 months, to address the persistent need for STEM-qualified workers in the US.
