STEM Designated Programs at the top 20 MBA Programs

STEM Designated Programs at the top 20 MBA Programs

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) MBA programs are increasing in popularity - and with good reason. International students are able to take advantage of extended visa opportunities and remain in the United States for a total of 36 months rather than the standard 12. And, by combining tech and business skills, STEM MBA programs also meet the changing needs of organizations, thereby increasing employability for graduates of these programs.

Here is a complete list of STEM-designated MBA programs at the top 20 business schools (as of November 2020) along with their median / average acceptance statistics.
