STEM-Certified Degree Program
Fueling innovation

The merging of business with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields is powering business innovation in the 21st century.

STEM-Certified degree program

Businesses are increasingly turning to STEM fields for innovation in the marketplace. These fields are key to U.S. economic global competitiveness.

With a significant shortage of qualified workers for employment in STEM fields, businesses are increasingly hiring international workers. STEM-certified degree programs enable international students to remain in the U.S. after graduation to establish their careers and meet the demand for STEM-educated professionals.

The UC Davis Master of Science in Business Analytics is a STEM-certified program.

Under this STEM classification, UC Davis MSBA international students can qualify for a 36-month Optional Practical Training (OPT) Extension after graduation to remain in the U.S. and receive training through work experience.
