JURIS DOCTOR/MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

The J.D./M.B.A. program is designed for those students seeking advanced education in business administration in addition to an education in the law. Applicants for the J.D./M.B.A. program must apply separately to the School of Law and to the College of Business graduate program and be accepted individually to both.


Normal degree requirements of 90 credit hours (juris doctor) and 33 credit hours in 700- and 800-level coursework (master of business administration) are complemented and reduced to 81 credit hours (juris doctor) and 24 credit hours (master of business administration). Each program is reduced by nine credit hours as each program accepts, as part of its requirement, nine credit hours from the other program.


Upon completion of the program, the student will be awarded two separate degrees. The requirements for both must be completed, however, before either degree can be awarded. Students participating in the joint program must maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.0 (4.0 scale) in the School of Law and 3.0 (4.0 scale) in the College of Business Administration.
Students failing to meet all of the requirements of the program are awarded the juris doctor or master of business administration degree only if they fulfill the requirements for the individual degree as outlined in the law school or graduate bulletins, respectively.
