STEM-Designated Masters Bring New Hope For US Business Schools
Monday, July 9, 2018
With red-hot demand from employers for STEM—a recent report predicted a potential shortage of 1.1 million workers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math occupations by 2024 if current trends continue—more and more business schools are chasing STEM classification.
Applications to the STEM-designated Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) at the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management have shot up in recent years, with the class size more than doubling between 2015 and 2016. 2017 saw more students on the MSBA than the school’s flagship full-time MBA program.
