Business Management and Law (LMBA)
Graduate Degree Program
The Robert H. Smith School of Business and the University of Maryland School of Law in Baltimore offer a joint program of studies leading to MBA and JD degrees. Under the terms of the joint program, a student may earn both degrees in four academic years. The accelerated program is possible because some courses can be credited toward both degrees. Candidates must apply for admission to the Law School as well as to the MBA program at College Park and must be admitted to both programs. Information about the JD program can be found at http://www.law.umaryland.edu/index.html.
