  1. The H1B masters cap has been reached. You can apply again on April 1 2014. Stem is the name provided to degrees in science technology engineering and math


  2. I believe that you recently asked a variation of this question quite recently.

    Yes, if the job requires a masters, it can be used for the master's cap ... for the October 2014 H 'season'.

    No, this isn't a STEM degree ... no matter how much Technology and Mathematics you may use in the administration of a business.

  3. The advanced degree quota aside, I'd like to point out that it is often very hard to qualify for an H-1b with a business administration degree or even an MBA, since an MBA is considered a general business degree and is not a "profession" for H-1B purposes..
