MBA/Juris Doctor Dual Degree
You can earn this dual degree in as few as three to four years of full-time study thanks to this expedited program. When you graduate, you’ll be primed for a career at law firms, corporate counsel offices, investment and accounting firms, nonprofit agencies, and government institutions.
MBA/JD students that waive MBA core courses must substitute with an elective from within the Sawyer Business School. If at least nine credits of core courses are waived, students may declare a concentration with three electives from the same functional area.
Suffolk's MBA/JD Dual Degree Program
New students applying to the JD dual-degree programs apply only to the Law School, which means taking the LSAT or GRE and submitting Suffolk Law’s online application through LSAC.org. Dual-degree applicants should indicate their desire to apply to the dual-degree program and include a second essay that specifically mentions the dual degree. In many cases, you will not need to take the GMAT or GRE. However, the Graduate Admission Office may request additional standardized testing for applicants in the MSF programs.
