Best School for a JD/MBA Dual Degree?


ringo dc

Curious to get the opinion from the board: what are some good options for those seeking a JD/MBA dual degree program? I'm looking at the following US schools:

NYU (both Stern and the school of law are well-regarded.)
American University/Kogod (it would be nice to be able to stay in DC and evolve my network here.)
Cornell (would be nice to complete the program in three years)

Any other suggestions? I'm not sure what I'd like to do after graduation - maybe management consulting here in Washington or corporate restructuring/bankruptcy.

With very casual writing like this you appear to be a wanderer thinking about an idea crossing your mind. MBA or JD in itself is serious commitment a JD/MBA is very serious. So please act like you care about yourself and the people on here.

anyways, most programs will allow you combine JD and MBA so from harvard to southeaster and phoenix JD/MBA is an option

It looks like there are 192 accredited, articulated, MBA-JD programmes in the US http://www.find-mba.com/search/8e743768/1

There are a lot of good programs, and you can generally filter them by the quality of the individual programs. If you're interested in three-year programs, here's some top-tier ones that I'd suggest checking out:

Wharton offers a condensed program - seven semesters over three years, with a summer internship. For the internship, students are usually split between business and law - and many go into NYC to do M&A work, restructuring - I'd think something like this would be very relevant for you.

There's another three-year JD/MBA program at Yale. You'd study during the summer so this precludes full-time internships - but some students do part-time ones.

And there's a good three-year JD/MBA program at Columbia as well. Internships are available, and the curriculum is pretty interesting, with some focus on family businesses, and innovation- and strategy-centric electives options.

Sorry, no disrespect intended.

Thanks, Ralph for the great suggestions. A three-year program sounds interesting to me, but if I have to forego an internship, the time saved might not be worth it. Anyway, I found a few others during my research:

Darden - although Charlottesville is a bit awkward location-wise: close to DC, but not close enough to commute.

Berkeley - Haas or Stanford: However, a complete change of scenery might be worth it. Stanford law seems to have a fantastic alumni network.

Chicago - Booth has a good program as well. It's four years, but you can have up to three internships. So to explore your career goals, you could do in a consulting firm in DC, another in a corporate law firm, and then one somewhere else - it's not uncommon for JD/MBA students to work for a judge; that could be helpful.

Thanks Ezra,

I think I'm going to apply to the longer JD/MBA programs, as opposed to rushing through both degrees in three years. So I've decided to apply to the following:

NYU Stern
Chicago - Booth
Wharton

As a fallback, I'm going to apply to the George Washington JD/MBA program as well - it doesn't seem to be as high-caliber as the others, but well-regarded in political circles.

Cornell and Duke both have 3 year JD/MBA with internship. Duke is actually 3 year and another semester

Thanks for this. The Duke program looks interesting - I know Duke Law and Fuqua are both great schools, and it seems like the program allows you to do up to three internships, which would be beneficial in terms of hands-on experience.
