Law, LLM / Business Administration, MBA

In the global economy, lawyers increasingly need to harness both business and legal skills to serve their clients’ needs. Through a partnership between the School of Law and the D’Amore-McKim School of Business, the LLM (Master of Laws)/MBA dual-degree program is designed to prepare students to assume leadership positions in which they will navigate complex legal issues, answering their clients’ calls for legal expertise and engaging as partners to develop new models for businesses, nonprofit organizations, and governments worldwide.

The LLM/MBA program is a full-time, two-year course of study. Students will begin their studies fall semester in the business school, take law courses the following summer and fall, and finish with business courses. 

Students will select two business concentrations to complete their MBA coursework. Business concentrations include business analytics, corporate innovation and venturing, entrepreneurship, finance, healthcare management, international business, leading people and organizations, marketing, and supply chain management.

Students may also choose to develop a complementary skill set in a different industry area. Students who pursue an MBA x concentration take courses from one of Northeastern University’s other professional colleges, including Khoury College of Computer Sciences; the College of Arts, Media and Design; the College of Science; and the College of Social Sciences and Humanities.

By pursuing the two degrees concurrently, LLM/MBA students will count 9 credits of coursework toward both degrees. These 9 credits from the LLM curriculum will count toward the interdisciplinary and elective requirements of the MBA degree. In addition, up to 6 credits from the MBA curriculum may be countable toward the LLM degree.
