At no time in history has science, technology, and engineering been more important to the nation's future. Manufacturing, software engineering, computer science, alternative energy, high-tech steel production, infrastructure replacement, health care, and evolving forms of communication will create demand for engineers, technicians, and scientists from a variety of fields, but will also create a substantial demand for professionals in these fields who also possess communication, leadership, decision-making and business-analytical skills.
The STEM path to the MBA focuses on attracting high-quality undergraduate students majoring in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines. The program is an innovative approach to engage students early on as undergraduates and employ nontraditional classroom methods to allow top students to complete the MBA in one additional calendar year. The purpose of the path is to provide high-achieving students with the business knowledge needed to successfully manage high-tech businesses.
STEM Path applicants who hold a minimum high school GPA of 3.5 and a minimum ACT score of 28 will be considered for early admission to the MBA program. During their junior year, students will apply for admission to the Graduate School for the MBA program.
At the end of their junior year, a student is unconditionally admitted into the graduate MBA program if they have achieved a 3.3 overall undergraduate GPA, is completing an undergraduate degree in a STEM discipline, and achieves a score of 600 or better on the GMAT. The GMAT is preferred, but students may choose to take either the GMAT or the GRE. Students with a GPA below 3.3, but equal to or greater than 3.0 will be considered for unconditional admission if their GMAT is 600 or higher.
