Earn two degrees in a shorter time and at a lower cost than if pursued separately. For students with a strong math background, it’s possible to obtain two degrees in 3.5 years (if summer school courses are taken). Students must consult with advisors in both the College of Law and Robinson College of Business to determine the most appropriate curriculum for their interests and background.
9 elective credit hours count towards the total 90 J.D. required credit hours.
By combining the two degrees, 9 elective credit hours of M.S.D.A. courses count towards the total 90 J.D. required credit hours and J.D. courses count toward the required M.S.D.A. electives.
To pursue a dual degree, students must be accepted by both colleges and satisfy the curriculum requirements for both programs. Acceptance into one program does not guarantee acceptance to the other.
- Current J.D. students should seek admission into the M.S.D.A. program as soon as possible.
- Current M.S.D.A. students must apply for the dual degree before completing 21 M.S.D.A. credit hours.
- Foundation or introductory coursework may be required for students based on their previous academic experience.
- LSAT is required.
- GMAT will be waived for students that have already taken the LSAT and are enrolled in law school.
- Students interested in the dual degree are required to consult with Prof. Ben Chapman (COL) and with Prof. Charlotte Alexander (RCB), before starting their studies. This will ensure the best experience in terms of coordinating course selections.
