The Simon MBA is Poets & Quants’ Program of the Year

We have exciting news to share: Poets & Quants recently named us the 2018 MBA Program of the Year! The selection was based largely on the option to pursue a STEM-designated MBA regardless of a student’s specialization and our newly-launched curriculum.

P&Q program of the yearBoth the STEM-designated MBA option and our revamped curriculum build on our foundation of quantitative and analytics-based study to continue to ensure our MBA graduates arrive on the job with technical tools and leadership skills that positively impact a company’s bottom line.

The STEM-designated option signals quantitative rigor to employers who are eager to hire leaders with expertise in managing data and analytics across many industries and functions, while also allowing international students to work in the US for up to 36 months on a student visa if hired in a STEM-eligible role. Our recent curricular innovation tailors students’ coursework and co-curricular activities to align with their career goals and ensure that our MBA students are prepared to immediately add value in their new roles.

“For the MBA program, it is a great signal to the marketplace that we are giving students these analytical skills that are so valued in the workplace,” said Dean Andrew Ainslie. “This is a signal to recruiters about the quantitative and analytical nature of our programs.”
