IU Kelley's MBA Receives STEM Designation

Good news for those needing a post-MBA career visa: five of the school's MBA majors are now STEM-designated

Indiana University's Kelley School of Business has announced that five of its MBA majors are now STEM-designated.

Beginning this spring, those who graduate with a major in business analytics, finance, marketing, and supply chain and operations will receive an MBA with STEM designation.

According to the school, the designation will help prepare MBA grads for a career field where quantitative skills are increasingly valued.

"The digital economy permeates every aspect of society and across many industries today, and our corporate partners and recruiters want graduates who possess an understanding of how technology drives innovation, creates new job opportunities and spurs economic growth," said Idalene "Idie" Kesner, dean of the Kelley School and the Frank P. Popoff Chair of Strategic Management.

For international students applying for a post-MBA work visa in the US, this is good news, as the STEM designation will add an additional 24 months to the visa (on top of the typical 12 months.)

A number of US business schools are now offering STEM-designated MBA degrees. You can see a list of the best STEM MBAs here.
