STEM-Designated Degree Programs

STEM-Designated Graduate Business Degree Programs

All of our AACSB-accredited school of management graduate programs are STEM-designated degrees (science, technology, engineering, and math). Graduates of STEM-designated master’s programs make more money on average than graduates of non-STEM-designated graduate programs. Our STEM focus combined with an emphasis on management and inclusion makes us one of the best business schools in California.

International students in a STEM-designated program are eligible for 36 months of Optional Practical Training (OPT) to work in the United States in their field of study after graduation.
