The JD/MBA dual degree is offered through a partnership between Northeastern University School of Law and the D’Amore-McKim School of Business to position students to operate in increasingly interdependent legal and business spheres. As new technologies disrupt industries and the availability and sophisticated use of data is shifting the business landscape, our JD/MBA students prepare to guide corporate-level strategy and become the leaders businesses need.
Our JD/MBA program is a full-time, four-year course of study that includes three semester-long co-op work experiences arranged through Northeastern Law. Students complete three years of law school, taking a break after either year one or two to complete a year of business school.
Students will specialize their degree by selecting two in-demand business concentrations from the D'Amore-McKim School of Business. Or, they could choose to add expertise in another professional area by choosing an interdisciplinary MBA x concentration in a highly relevant field offered through partnerships with other Northeastern colleges.
Students will concurrently pursue the two degrees and may count 9 credits from the JD curriculum toward the interdisciplinary and elective requirements of the MBA degree and up to 12 credits from the MBA curriculum toward the JD degree. Students should work with their MBA advisor to select JD courses that will fulfill MBA requirements and with their law advisor to choose MBA courses that will satisfy JD requirements.
