Law, JD / Business Administration, MBA

As technology and data analytics are shifting the business landscape, businesses need leaders equipped to guide corporate-level strategy. A partnership between the School of Law and the D’Amore-McKim School of Business, our Juris Doctorate/MBA dual-degree program is a powerful combination that positions candidates to operate with equal facility in the increasingly interdependent legal and business spheres.

Our JD/MBA program is a full-time, four-year course of study that includes co-op work experiences at the intersection of law and business arranged through the law school co-op office. Starting in the fall term, you’ll complete three years of law school, taking a break after either your first or second year to complete one year of business school. 

You’ll select two concentrations to complete your MBA coursework. Concentrations include business analytics, corporate innovation and venturing, entrepreneurship, finance, healthcare management, international business, leading people and organizations, marketing, or supply chain management.

MBA x is a new degree concept that offers you an opportunity to fuse your comprehensive education in law and business with graduate-level knowledge and skills in another industry. You could complete required coursework at D’Amore-McKim and then complete your second 12-credit concentration by studying in one of Northeastern’s eligible professional colleges. MBA x concentrations are offered in partnership with Northeastern’s Khoury College of Computer Sciences; College of Arts, Media and Design; and College of Science.

Students pursuing the two degrees concurrently will be able to count 9 credits from the JD curriculum toward the interdisciplinary and elective requirements of the MBA degree. Students should work with their MBA adviser in selecting JD courses that will fulfill MBA requirements. Students should consult with their law adviser to determine the extent to which MBA credits will count toward JD degree requirements.
