Top STEM MBA Programs

All aspirants know that MBA from US and few years of employment there can be really critical in shaping their long-term career.

WHAT IS STEM MBA

Many top US schools are now introducing STEM MBA programs that allow students to work in US for up to 3 years post completion of the MBA program.

This can be a great option given that most of regular business schools can help you stay in US for only up to 12 months post the program is over.

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. It is a degree designation authorized by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of the United States Government that allows international students to stay and work in the US for up to three years post graduation. 

HAVE CAN YOU GET 3 YEAR EMPLOYMENT PERMISSION

During your regular MBA program you can apply for Optional Training Period (OPT), which allows you to work for 12 months of practical training after you graduate. If your MBA is STEM-certified, you can opt to extend your OPT by an additional 24 months.

After your STEM OPT extension, you can also apply for the H1-B temporary work visa through your employer, and this will extend your stay in the US for a maximum of 3 additional years after your combined STEM OPT of 36 months.
