Dual-Degree JD/MBA

Students may apply for acceptance to both the Quinnipiac School of Law and the MBA program and, upon completion of both programs, receive a business and a law degree. This specialized joint program shortens the length of time necessary to receive the degrees. Four law courses are used to fulfill the four-elective course requirement of the MBA program.

Admissions for these programs are handled separately, but a student should inform both admissions offices of an interest in this joint degree program. Students accepted into the School of Law are not required to take the GMAT or GRE.

Once accepted to both programs, a student typically completes one year of law studies and then begins taking courses from both programs concurrently, finishing both programs’ requirements in the same semester. However, students who wish to complete the joint program in three years can accomplish this by starting their MBA courses in the summer before their first year in the School of Law. A student may be admitted to one program and, prior to meeting the graduation requirements for that program, apply for the joint degree program.

More information about this joint program is available on the School of Law JD/MBA page.
