Questrom Joins School of Law for Accelerated JD/MBA Program
The Questrom School of Business and the Boston University School of Law will launch a new, accelerated JD/MBA program beginning this fall. Students can complete this new dual-degree program can be completed in three years rather than the five years it would take to complete each degree separately.
Students in the program will complete a mix of law and business courses throughout the entirety of the program, including a full load of courses during the summer of the first year. In the summer of the second year, students will be free to take on internships in law firms or other settings.
In addition to the new accelerated program, Boston University will also continue to offer two other specialized JD/MBA programs. The school’s JD/MBA in Law & Management can be completed in four years, while the JD/MBA in Law & Health Sector Management, can be completed in four and a half years.
To apply for Boston University’s new accelerated JD/MBA program, prospective students are required to apply to each program separately and must be accepted at, both the Questrom School of Business and Boston University’s School of Law.
There is no minimum number of years of work experience required for admissions, but many candidates do have some post-graduate work experience. Candidates with little or no work experience should be stronger in other admissions criteria, such as GPA and GMAT. Prospective students are also required to take the LSAT in addition to the GMAt to apply to the JD program.
