NYU Stern’s Two-year Full-time MBA Program Receives STEM Designation

NYU Stern campus
With the start of the spring semester on Monday, February 3, New York University Stern School of Business is announcing that its two-year Full-time MBA program is officially designated as a STEM program (approved and effective as of January 2nd).  This change, which reflects the integration of technology and analytics into the curriculum, will cover all students graduating in May 2020 or later, as well as (retroactively) May 2019 graduates who are currently on post-completion Optional Practical Training (OPT).  

In May 2019, the School’s focused one-year Andre Koo Technology and Entrepreneurship MBA received the STEM designation.  Now, Stern offers two STEM-designated MBA degree programs.
