USC - Marshall Launches STEM-Certified MBA Specialization

New Management Science MBA specialization to launch this fall

The University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business has announced the creation of a new STEM-certified MBA specialization. 

By pursuing the new STEM-certified MBA specialization in Management Science, students may be eligible for an extension of their post-study OPT visa, from 12 to 36 months.

With the new specialization, students will be able to develop skills in subjects including data analytics, finance, statistics, supply chain operations, forecasting, and data modeling. 

A number of US-based business schools, including the Wisconsin School of Business and Carnegie Mellon's Tepper School of Business, have launched STEM-certified MBA specializations. With these specializations, the business schools are aiming to attract international students who are interested in combining their MBA education with skills in the "STEM" fields—science, technology, engineering, and math—and leveraging this for longer post-MBA visas.

Marshall's new STEM-certified MBA specialization in Management Science is set to launch this fall.
