New! – STEM Designation for 3 MBA Tracks
The State of Connecticut’s Office of Higher Education granted STEM designation for UConn’s three quantitative tracks in the Full-time MBA Program: Business Analytics, Digital Marketing Strategy, and Financial Analysis and Investments. STEM which stands for: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, qualifies students here studying on a visa to be eligible for 36 months of OPT (Optional Practical Training), rather than the usual 12 months, provided all other eligibility criteria are met. STEM graduates are essential to U.S. economic competitiveness and growth and in short supply. This OPT extension makes it attractive to businesses to hire international students.
The UConn Full-time MBA Program is looking for bright, innovative leaders who are motivated by change and challenge, and each year we strive to create a class with a diversity of professional experience, educational achievement, and cultural background. Our pledge is to stimulate your intellect, enhance your skills, and develop your full potential.
In 2015-2016, we introduced new concentrations, required courses in shorter modules, front-loaded course work to prepare you for internships in new functions or industries, and an increased focus on strengthening communication skills. Seasoned professionals looking for smaller career changes may be able to complete the program in 16 months.
UConn’s focus on globalization ensures your exposure to international issues and opportunities. Students will be required to pursue a course on Sustainability in the Global Business Environment. UConn’s MBA offers everything from a culturally diverse student body, to additional intensive study/travel courses in regions around the world.
