Combine data-driven decision-making and analytics with the overall M.B.A. program learning objectives of developing a global and entrepreneurial mindset for a transformative leadership development program with a STEM M.B.A. from St. John’s University.
The 45 credit STEM M.B.A. program is designed to meet the needs of students who are interested in pursuing analytical and technical management roles across industries. The federal government created the STEM-designated degree program to address the shortage of qualified workers in the STEM field, which is estimated to grow to more than a million jobs by 2028.
The STEM M.B.A. highlights Tobin’s commitment to an analytical, data-driven curriculum that enables students to utilize technology, data, and analytics to make better business decisions and solve complex business problems. This program enables students to select two STEM concentrations designed to combine data-driven decision-making and analytics with the overall M.B.A. program learning objectives of developing a global and entrepreneurial mindset, building upon the knowledge, skills and competencies of business fundamentals, and providing a transformative leadership development program.
The new STEM M.B.A. is focused on preparing students to fulfill the increasing need to apply quantitative and scientific methods to business challenges. Those who pursue the STEM M.B.A. will be able to demonstrate expertise in subjects such as business analytics, finance, financial technology (FinTech), information systems, risk management and insurance, and sustainability.
The STEM designation offers an additional benefit by allowing international students to apply to extend their 12 month optional practical training (OPT) by an additional 24 months. OPT provides many F-1 visa students with the opportunity to work in the U.S. for up to 12 months to gain valuable experience related to their field of study. International students graduating from STEM-designated programs may apply for a 24-month extension to their post-completion OPT, providing up to 36 months of temporary employment in the U.S. Because a STEM designated degree program is approved by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the employment extension could potentially expand the international student’s employment opportunities within the U.S. More information about the STEM M.B.A., eligibility, and requirements can be found in the St. John’s University Graduate Bulletin.
Applicants to The Tobin College of Business Graduate programs will automatically be considered for GMAT/GRE waivers. Applications with a GPA below 3.25 may be strengthened by submitting a GMAT/GRE score.
The M.B.A. curriculum is designed to allow for innovative approaches to in-class learning and expands on the development of a real world skill-set that students can apply immediately to their emerging careers.
Along with the required M.B.A. core and capstone courses, the STEM M.B.A. will require students to complete two concentrations, or an additional 9 credit hours above our standard M.B.A. The STEM M.B.A. program will make it possible for international graduates to remain in the United States for an additional 24 months (36 months in total) after graduation and receive training through work experience.
