Become an expert in law and business
A jointly sponsored program from Brooklyn Law School & Baruch College. Earn degrees of Juris Doctor (J.D.) and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Business Administration and Policy.
The program allows students to obtain both degrees in less time than it would take to obtain them independently and facilitates an in-depth study of the connections between law and business. The J.D./MBA is appropriate for those students who seek careers requiring unique knowledge of both the law and business, including advisors to business policy makers or government agencies that regulate business, in-house legal counsel or tax or accounting firm associates.
J.D./MBA Degree Requirements
Baruch College admits students for either the Fall or Spring semester to the Evening MBA program. Applicants to Baruch must have satisfactory scores on the GMAT. 48 credits are required for the MBA degree and a student may receive up to nine of the 48 by successfully completing approved law school courses. Similarly, nine of the 85 credits required for the J.D. degree may be transferred from Baruch and applied towards the J.D.
As a result of the transfer credits, full-time students may complete the requirements for both degrees in four to five years, depending on the number of summer courses. If pursued on a part-time basis, the program generally takes five to six years to complete depending on number of summer courses.
