Rutgers STEM MBA Focuses on Technology Management and Analytical Skills to Teach Students Data-Driven Decision-Making
Rutgers Business School STEM MBA curriculum emphasizes advanced mathematics or management of technology and includes courses in operations analysis, data mining, business forecasting and quality management
Rutgers Business School is enhancing its traditional MBA program with an optional STEM designation that offers students the ability to focus on the technology and analytic skills demanded in a changing work world.
While Rutgers has taught rigorous data-driven analytical skills as part of its management education for the past 64 years, the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) MBA designation reflects the increased importance for business leaders to have a solid understanding of how to use data analytics and innovation to drive decision-making.

“We have taken another giant step toward building a strong business school for the future of work,” said Rutgers Business School Dean Lei Lei. “The STEM designation will provide our students with a competitive edge to excel on the job market, and our corporate partners will know they can hire the digital-era talent that they need to make data-driven decisions and become innovative leaders in their organizations.”
The STEM-designated degree is an option for students who pursue a Rutgers Full-Time MBA, a Part-Time MBA as well as the Executive MBA. International students who complete the STEM MBA (like other STEM programs) are eligible to work up to three years in the U.S. without requiring sponsorship from an employer.
