JD / MBA Joint Degree Program

Why Earn a JD/MBA Joint Degree?

Professionals preparing for today's business world need an education that balances substance with experience. The study of law prepares you to recognize and evaluate complex issues with careful thought and analysis — how to "think like a lawyer." The study of business prepares you to solve complex problems in the context of real-world business settings.

When combined as a cross-discipline course of study, a JD and an MBA complement each other in a synergistic way, where the sum is greater than each of its parts. By earning both a JD and an MBA, you will strike the perfect balance between technical and practical skills.
