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 technology disrupts industries and data availability and sophisticated use shifts 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 courses.
Students specialize their program by selecting two in-demand business concentrations from the D'Amore-McKim School of Business. Or, they may add expertise in another professional area by selecting an interdisciplinary MBA x concentration in a highly relevant field offered through partnerships with other Northeastern colleges.
Students concurrently pursue the two degrees and may count 9 semester hours of nonlaw coursework from the JD curriculum toward the interdisciplinary and elective requirements of the MBA degree and up to 12 semester hours 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.
