With a decline in qualified professionals and many quantitative positions going unfilled, a STEM designated finance degree is crucial to producing finance professionals that help the U.S.’s economic growth and overall competitiveness in the global market. The MFin program is STEM-designated and eligible students have the option to apply for up to 36 months of Optional Practical Training (OPT) upon graduation. This longer duration is especially attractive to companies interested in recruiting and retaining top STEM talent. For more information about OPT eligibility, please visit UCI’s International Center website.
