¿Qué aprenderé?

The MBA/JD is a 36-credit hour dual degree designed for students who are currently enrolled in the JD program at the University of Memphis, Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law and are interested in modern law and management. This joint program offers the student the ability to complete both the JD and MBA degrees in less time than it takes to complete them separately. An applicant must submit separate applications and be independently accepted to both the JD and MBA programs. A student is encouraged to apply to both programs at the same time. A law student must begin the MBA program before beginning the third year of law school course work. An MBA student must begin law school before completing one half of the course work in the MBA program. Students in the coordinated MBA/JD program may schedule their course work in the joint program to suit their educational objectives, subject to the restrictions listed below:; The University of Memphis charges a student in a joint degree program the higher tuition for all credits earned in either degree. Since law school tuition is higher than graduate business school tuition, students in the joint degree are charged law school tuition rates for course credit in both law school and business school, even if a student only takes business school courses in a given semester. For more information, please visit the program websites:; There are no prerequisites for the core MBA curriculum. However, students entering the MBA programs are expected to be fluent in the language of business, with a working understanding of key concepts in economics, finance, and accounting. In addition, students are expected to have a working proficiency in statistics.
