Graduate STEM- designated Degrees

In today’s business world, STEM skills are sought after as companies seek leaders with the knowledge and business acumen to transform industry through data-driven decision-making. LeBow’s STEM-designated master’s degrees, designated by the Department of Homeland Security, offer a comprehensive business education through a blend of interdisciplinary technical, quantitative and professional skills with the added benefit of participating in unique experiential learning opportunities.

By encouraging students to step outside of their disciplines and utilize academic theory and technical ability to solve real-world business challenges from the start, LeBow’s graduate STEM programs ensure students have the experience needed to adapt to and lead in the inevitable technological changes in the fast-paced business environment. Also boasting a diverse student body and supportive international student services, our business school helps students innovate across industries and the world.
