Joint Degree Programs

J.D./MBA Concurrent Degree Program

Consistent with the increased interaction between the fields of business and law, the College of Business Administration and the School of Law, together, offer the J.D./MBA concurrent degree program. The MBA degree ordinarily requires a minimum of 30 hours of course work, while the J.D. alone requires 90 hours. The J.D./MBA concurrent degree program, however, allows for 9 hours of law classes to be accepted toward the MBA degree and 9 hours of business classes to be accepted toward the J.D. degree. The result is a concurrent degree program that entails 81 semester hours of law and 21 semester hours of business courses, with an 18 semester hour savings over pursuing both degrees separately.

J.D./M.Acc. Concurrent Degree Program

Due to the increasing need for professionals with a tax specialization, the School of Accountancy and the School of Law jointly offer the J.D./M.Acc. concurrent degree program. The purpose is to prepare the student to become a CPA/Attorney-at-Law tax professional. The M.Acc. Degree ordinarily requires 30 hours of course work, while the J.D. degree alone requires 90 hours. The J.D./M.Acc. program, however, allows for 9 hours of accountancy courses to be accepted toward the J.D. degree, and 9 hours of law classes to be accepted toward the M.Acc. degree. The result is a joint degree program which entails 81 semester hours of law and 21 semester hours of accountancy courses, with an 18 hour savings over pursuing both degrees separately.


Business and Transactional Law Specialization

Students may receive a transcript notation and certificate acknowledging the completion of the Specialization by completing at least 15 credits from the Approved List of Business and Transactional Law Courses. For more information, click here.
