Business Management and Law, Master of Business Administration and Juris Doctorate (Dual Degree) (M.B.A. and J.D.)

Students complete 109 total credits including 33 credits of Business courses. The remaining coursework is completed at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Part-time MBA students complete the BUSI designated courses. Full-time MBA students complete the BUSM designated courses.

Twenty-one credits of law will be substituted for MBA elective coursework. Grade point averages in each program will be computed separately and students must maintain minimum standards in each school to continue in the program. The Graduate School will not accept transfer credit from coursework taken outside the joint program. A student must complete both programs satisfactorily in order to receive both degrees. The MBA and the JD degrees must be awarded simultaneously. A student whose enrollment is terminated in one program may elect to complete work for the degree in which he or she remains enrolled, but such completion must be upon the same conditions as required of regular (nonjoint program) degree candidates. Student programs must be approved by the law school adviser for the joint program and the Associate Dean for Masters Programs. For further discussion of admission and degree requirements, students should see the above and consult the entry in the University of Maryland School of Law catalog.
