GRU launches new STEM focused MBA program

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Georgia Regents University's James M. Hull College of Business will launch and begin recruiting students for the school's first MBA option aimed specifically for graduates with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, this fall.

The STEM-MBA Option is a 15-month program focused on the management and commercialization of emerging industries in energy, biotechnology, health care, information, and manufacturing technologies.

"Since STEM careers are in such high demand, it is our goal to prepare students for not only the business of science, but the science of business," said Marc Miller, Dean of the Hull College of Business. "With the rigorous curriculum being taught by highly skilled professors, we know our graduates will be better equipped to meet the future challenges in their STEM-specific careers."

Coursework includes subjects like business analytics, managerial and global economics, and strategic information systems.

For more information about the program, call the Hull College of Business at 706-737-1560.
