Master of Business Administration/Juris Doctor Joint Degree Program (MBA/JD)

A joint program of Charlton College of Business and UMass School of Law

As the only public law school in Massachusetts, UMass Law provides a high-quality, affordable legal education.

The MBA/JD degree allows students to integrate advanced management study and a law school education in a structure compatible with part-time as well as full-time study. Classes are held during the evening hours, on weekends, and during the day.

Full-time students may enroll simultaneously in business and law courses, and they can complete both degrees in approximately three years. Part-time students typically register for an entire semester in one program, and they can complete both degrees in five years.

Applicants for the JD/MBA degree should meet the entrance requirements set by each program. Admission to one program does not guarantee admission to the other. Applications are welcome from students with baccalaureate degrees in any field. Those interested are invited to contact the individuals identified below for complete information.
