Reflection of STEM Education on Finance, Economics, Management: A Bibliometric Analysis



STEM, Finance, Economics, Management


The aim of this study is to reveal the reflections of STEM education studies, which are becoming a multidisciplinary field, in the fields of finance, economics and management by using data obtained from the Web of Science (WOS) database and bibliometric analysis methods. In the study, the data obtained from the Web of Science (WOS) database were classified and analyzed using VOSviewer (Version 1.6.18) and presented in a certain order with visual mapping method. The results of the analysis clearly reveal the reflections of STEM education studies in the fields of finance, economy, and management. Supporting the fields of finance, economics, and management, which assume important functions in the economic development process, with STEM education understanding will make positive contributions to this process. While the study makes an important contribution to the literature on the one hand, the results are expected to make important contributions to the field of education, as well as to the employees and policy decision makers in the fields of economics, finance, and management.
