Today’s business environment is moving at breakneck speed to incorporate the latest technology and cutting-edge innovation. Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management – ranked #57 (US News and World Report) — knows this well.

That is why Alexander McKelvie, Associate Dean for Undergraduate and Master’s Education and Professor of Entrepreneurship, is excited about their new STEM-designated MBA for students who successfully complete concentrations in business analytics, finance, marketing and supply chain management.

“The STEM-designation for our MBA programme reflects the commitment of our faculty to prepare students for a fast-changing business environment that includes cutting-edge technology, data analytics as well as creativity and forward-looking innovation. These areas are fundamental to modern business and therefore central to our MBA education,” explains McKelvie. “Our required curriculum and broad set of elective courses emphasise these skills and abilities already.”

“We have made significant investments into our MBA program over the past few years. These investments are paying off, as evidenced by these new generationally high rankings.”

With 36 core course credits and 18 elective credits that can be completed within two years, Syracuse University’s MBA appeals to the discerning student with a busy schedule yet wants a well-integrated learning experience that includes industry relevance. This way, they can advance in their career more readily.

For example, students can choose up to two of seven concentrations available: Accounting, Business Analytics, Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises, Finance, Marketing Management, Real Estate and Supply Chain Management. Add in electives – from Whitman or another school/college within Syracuse University– and you can see why MBA students here can take their careers to even greater heights.

A STEM designation on their MBA allows international students to stretch their OPT (Optional Practical Training) in the US to 36 months from the original 12. Consequently, they become more marketable since they can collect valuable work experience directly related to their studies.
