USC Marshall UG Programs Receives STEM Designation
The designation applies to business programs, such as Accounting, Business Administration, Business of Cinematic Arts and World Bachelor in Business
The entire undergraduate program of The Marshall School of Business, the business school of the University of Southern California, has been designated STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The new designation is beneficial to international students, who are looking to work in the United States.
The designation applies to business programs, such as Accounting, Business Administration (including all Emphases like Business Analytics, Communications, Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Finance, International Relations, Leadership & Innovation, Marketing, Real Estate Finance, Risk Management), Business of Cinematic Arts and World Bachelor in Business.
Traditionally, using an F-1 visa, students were eligible for up to 12 months of Optional Practical Training (OPT). OPT allows students to work towards getting practical training to complement their field of studies in the US once they have completed their program. STEM students are allowed to apply to extend that period of time even longer (up to 24 months).
The University of Southern California, located in the heart of Los Angeles, welcomes students from throughout the United States and around the world into its diverse community. The current student body includes representatives from 149 countries and regions.
