M.B.A. courses offered in the combined J.D./M.B.A. Program will allow students to learn a variety of business concepts, and how these business concepts are integrated into business decisions. They will learn the skills associated with becoming competent in reading financial documents and applying the knowledge gained from those documents to business decision-making. The study (and problem-solving practice) of how business decisions are made, models the problem-solving skills required by this competency. Conversely, the skills acquired as part of the J.D. program will reinforce learning in the M.B.A. program.

Admission Requirements

The student will first complete the J.D./M.B.A. Program application from the College of Law. The College of Law will then ensure the student meets the admission criteria in order to be eligible for the combined program. If the student meets the criteria, The College of Law will first send out an offer of admission, and notify the M.B.A. office. The M.B.A. program will then contact the student with directions on how to apply to the M.B.A. program.
