I am also looking into the MBA/JD joint program at USD. Is there anything you can tell me about the benefits of the joint program vice choosing either the MBA or JD program?

in general the joint degrees take longer, I can't remember about USD how long takes their MBA/JD. The benefit is to have a two degrees which would require a lot of time, energy and especially costs to do one after the other. But it's intense in terms of studies, and as you know an MBA alone is already challenging...

Hello Leigh, I´m not really into Health care, but more interested in a double degree Law/MBA. Does your school offer something like this?

What Are The Top MBA Programs?

If you've read my postings on the Businessweek, GMATClub, or WallStreetOasis forums, you'll undoubtedly know that I try to avoid the rankings talk. Rankings debates usually disintegrate into pissing matches, with the resulting discussion exaggerating the differences that no one else but applicants and students would actually care about.

What I've posted below isn't something I care too much about, but it seems like enough people are curious about my opinion as an admissions consultant. This is the first and last place I will post anything about rankings.

Here?s how the tiers more or less break down:

Top Three: HBS, Stanford, Wharton (some say Wharton is just a rung below HBS and Stanford but above Kellogg, MIT, Chicago, Columbia or Tuck, which I won?t dispute ? opinions vary).

Elite Eight: Top 3 plus Kellogg, MIT, Chicago, Columbia and Tuck. Some say Tuck is just a rung below; again opinions vary.

Sweet Sixteen: Elite 8, plus Michigan, Duke, Darden, NYU, Berkeley, UCLA, Cornell, Yale (some will say that Cornell and Yale are just a rung below, but again opinions vary).

Rest of the Best: These are the top regional schools including (in no particular order) UT-Austin, Georgetown, USC, UNC, Emory, Babson, Indiana, Purdue, Notre Dame, Maryland, Carnegie Mellon.

Big Two International: It?s basically INSEAD and London Business School (LBS), and then everyone else. The caliber of the student body and reputation of both these schools are comparable to the US Elite Eight.

There is no material difference in reputation between schools within the same tier. In other words, don't ask whether Columbia has a better reputation than Chicago or Kellogg, because other than the alums and students, no one cares!

Good, because most of the best schools are not in Sacramento. It would be good to know your profile: how much and what kind of work experience, GMAT score, and other career and academic background.

That aside, check out the article here:
http://www.find-mba.com/article/342/a-place-in-the-sun-mba-programs-in-california

And go through the list: what specialization interests you? If you want to be an entrepreneur, check out Stanford for its proximity to Silicon Valley. If you're interested in media and film management, check out a school like USC or UCLA with proximity to Hollywood. SDSU has a good sports management program. UC Davis has good wine and agriculture programs.

It all depends on (1) what interests you, and (2) where you want to be.

Not really a lot of those engineering-oriented programs in the Sacramento area, but there are some in California more generally. Check these out to start with:

Cal Poly/Orfalea
Loyola Marymount
San Jose State
