You’ll Benefit from a STEM-Designated Program
Our FlexEvening and FlexWeekend MBA programs are STEM designated, which reflects our focus on an analytical and data-driven curriculum. The STEM designation also allows international students on F-1 visas to be eligible to work in the United States for an additional 24 months under the OPT (Optional Practical Training) extension, for a total of 36 months.
Further information about eligibility and requirements for the STEM OPT extension is available on the Department of Homeland Security website and through the International Students & Programs Office at UC San Diego.
