Two-Year Residential Management Science MBA
Johnson’s STEM-designated, full-time Two-Year MBA program features one-of-a-kind curriculum, with fully integrated leadership development components and the opportunity to take advantage of programming offered in partnership with Cornell Tech in New York City. With Johnson’s unique Two-Year MBA immersion learning approach, you’ll be able to focus your studies on an industry of your choice in your first year—you’ll learn more, sooner. Whether you’re looking to enhance your existing career or switch to a new one, you’ll chart a path that will lead you to make the biggest impact.
The program’s STEM designation recognizes a path in management science with an emphasis in data analytics, technology, and other similar disciplines integral to contemporary business leadership.
International students on an F-1 visa pursing the program are eligible for a STEM OPT extension, enabling them to work in their field for a total of up to 36 months in the U.S. This extra 24 months makes them more hirable, affords them extended professional training, and gives them additional chances in the annual lottery for limited U.S. H-1B skilled worker visas.
