Including Application Requirements for these Law and Business Degrees
Joint JD/MBA degree programs are becoming an increasingly popular way to cut down on the time and cost of schooling while graduating with degrees in both law and business. This is especially true for those pursuing work in corporate or business law. While it’s by no means required for a lawyer to have an MBA, more law students are turning to this option as a way to double their networking and internship opportunities and gain a competitive edge in their field. Entrepreneurs looking for deeper business and legal expertise have also found the appeal of a joint JD/MBA, both to bolster their qualifications and meet like-minded people.
If you’ve been considering a joint JD/MBA degree, now’s the time to take your first step and start considering your options. With two programs combined, it can be even harder than usual to get information on applications, deadlines, and requirements, so we at The Art of Applying® went ahead and did some of the work for you!
