A STEM-certified program offered by the Robinson College of Business equips students with not only business acumen but also skills in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering or Math.
By earning a STEM-designated master’s degree from Robinson, you will stand out from other talent. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts STEM employment opportunities will grow by 10.8 percent between 2016 and 2026, while the overall job market will expand by only 7.4 percent—and companies are having trouble finding qualified candidates to fill critical STEM-related roles.
A Robinson STEM-certified graduate degree will set you up for success in the job marketplace of the future. During your studies, you will roll up your sleeves to engage in immersive assignments with practical applications, often in collaboration with partner firms. Since we constantly confer with companies to infuse current industry needs into the curriculum, students build contemporary skills.
A STEM degree is particularly useful if you’re an international student.
International students pursuing a STEM degree in the United States on an F-1 visa are eligible to extend their Optional Practical Training (OPT) by 24 months. (This benefit is not available to international students engaged in a non-STEM program of study.) The advantage of working in the U.S. for a total of three years is two-fold: graduates not only can gain even more career experience but also have more time to secure an H-1B work visa.
