What exactly is the OPT, and how can it help an international student?
OPT stands for Optional Practical Training. OPT is a temporary employament authorization that benefits the F-1 visa holders (Student Visa) who complete their academic program, Bachelor or Master, in the United States. “Eligible students can apply for up to 12 months of OPT employment authorization.” (https://www.uscis.gov/)
In other words, OPT is a temporary employment authorization that the U.S. Government offers graduates. Hence, they apply the knowledge and skills developed in their academic programs to excel in their professional development due to hands-on work experience in the U.S.
So, why do we say three years of authorization to work?
Because there is more than one type of OPT, and there is an OPT Extension known as STEM, like our STEM MBA.
The STEM OPT Extension means that if you have earned a degree that scopes Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM) fields, “you may apply for a 24-month extension of your post-completion OPT employment authorization”. (https://www.uscis.gov/)
In other words, you could get the OPT (12 months employment authorization) + STEM (24 months extension) for a total of 3 years employment authorization, and guess what?
Our STEM OPT automatically enables you to receive these benefits!
