Many of the most effective Fortune 500 CEOs are lawyers because lawyers know how to ask the right questions and analyze problems from different perspectives. Our dual JD/MBA degree will prepare you to navigate the modern intersections of law and business.


Application Timeline

We operate under a rolling-admission system, but suggest submitting your application by March 1 for priority fall admission and scholarship consideration.

Candidates for the Dean’s Fellows full-tuition awards should apply by February 1.

Admission Requirements

To enroll in the joint degree program, a student must file separate applications to and be accepted by both the School of Law and the School of Business. Students may begin at either school. 

It is possible for students who have not yet completed their degree requirements for one program to apply to the other school to be considered for a joint degree.

Admissions for these programs are handled separately, but a student should inform both admissions offices of an interest in pursuing the joint degree. The earlier you are accepted into both programs and declare pursuit of both degrees, the more beneficial the joint degree program is in the practical savings of time and credits.

Students accepted into the School of Law are not required to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). 

Upon admission to the joint degree program, the enrolled student must meet with the Director of the MBA program and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs of the School of Law for academic counseling. 

The most important factors considered are:

  • Undergraduate scholastic record
  • Law School Admission Test (LSAT) scores

We also weigh factors such as:

  • Applicant's personal statement
  • Letters of recommendation
  • Advanced degrees
  • Life and work experience
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Applicant’s ability to enhance the diversity of perspectives represented in our student body
