Jenkins MBA: STEM Designation


As of fall 2020, Jenkins is one of a small number of business schools designated as a STEM MBA. Our program is designed to combine data-driven decision-making and analytics with the overall MBA program learning objectives of developing a global and entrepreneurial mindset, building a deep understanding of business fundamentals, and leading high-performing teams.

The STEM MBA designation prepares students to fulfill the increasing need to apply quantitative and scientific methods to business challenges. Those who pursue the Jenkins MBA will be able to demonstrate expertise in subjects such as statistics, data analytics, operations and supply chain, finance, and digital marketing and modeling. 

For international students, the STEM designation offers an additional benefit. Optional practical training (OPT) provides many F-1 visa students with the opportunity to work in the U.S for up to 12 months, gaining valuable experience related to their field of study. Students graduating from the Jenkins MBA program may apply for a 24-month extension to their post-completion OPT, providing up to 36 months of temporary employment in the U.S.
