Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business MBA Gains STEM Designation

The Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business has received science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) designation for its Full-time and Evening MBA programs. MBA degrees conferred after May 31, 2022, will be considered STEM degrees.

MBA graduates will be able to declare an official concentration that appears on their transcript, choosing from 13 concentration options. Vetted by the College’s MBA faculty, the newly formalized MBA concentrations are revised versions of previous concentrations and immersive tracks. The STEM designation also benefits international students, who can leverage the optional practical training (OPT) extension period of 36 months to broaden their post-MBA career opportunities.

With the new designation, MBA students gain meticulous training in business analytics, international business, emerging technologies, industry profitability, and more. The concepts and applications the STEM curriculum offers teach students to analyze information and find better business solutions effectively.  

Scheller Full-time and Evening MBA program staff and faculty worked with the Georgia Tech Offices of Academic Effectiveness, Institutional Research, International Education, and the Registrar to achieve the STEM designation.

“This new STEM designation aligns with Scheller’s mission of providing world-class learning and curriculum for a tech-driven world,” said Dean Maryam Alavi. “The success of our graduates is a top priority. We are educating students who know how to lead and problem solve in fast-paced, complex business environments. Our STEM designation solidifies us as a leader at the intersection of business and technology.”
