Business and Law (J.D./M.B.A.)

Charles W. Ehrhardt Professor Jeffrey H. Kahn's scholarship focuses on the federal tax area.

The Colleges of Law and Business joint-degree program in Law and Business, J.D./M.B.A., permits completion of both degree programs concurrently. Following admission to both colleges or departments, a joint-degree student is required to submit the necessary joint-degree application and receive approval from the faculty advisor at the College of Law and the faculty advisor at the College of Business to pursue the joint degree. Interested applicants normally begin their study at the College of Law. A joint-degree student who wishes to enroll for any coursework in the other college or department before completing the first-year of law school must obtain the prior written approval of the College of Law faculty program advisor. Current law students may also apply to the joint-degree program by the end of their first year in law school. Once enrolled in the first-year law curriculum, they will then complete all necessary documentation through the College of Business as well as a joint-degree application before March 1st. All required documents should be returned to the College of Law Office of Admissions.

Applicants to the M.B.A. Program must have a bachelor’s degree, an upper division (junior and senior) grade point average of 3.0 or better, and a minimum score of 550 on the GMAT. Applicants who have scored 160 or better on the LSAT will have the GMAT requirement waived. It is expected that most students admitted to the M.B.A. program will exceed these minimums.
