With a national shortage of professionals trained in STEM related fields, employers are actively pursuing STEM degree holders. Distinguish yourself in business with a STEM-designated degree.
The MS in Marketing has been granted a STEM designation because students may pursue concentrations in digital marketing analytics or supply chain management. These concentrations include courses in customer analytics, data mining, forecasting, inventory and purchasing management, and lean production.
Also, under this STEM classification international students can extend their training in the U.S. by working in their field of study. Students can qualify for a 24-month OPT (Optional Practical Training) Extension, bringing the total OPT time granted to 36 months.
