JD / MBA
Rutgers Business School and Rutgers School of Law jointly offer the Juris Doctor/Masters of Business Administration program on the Newark, New Jersey campus. The Rutgers JD/MBA program offers students legal and business perspectives in such fields as finance, corporate practice, taxation, international, and other related fields.
Because each school within Rutgers recognizes up to 12 credits offered by the other, students are able to earn both a JD and an MBA in just four years -- one year less than it would take to earn them individually. Generally, dual degree candidates take the required JD curriculum in the first academic year and the full-time MBA core curriculum in the second academic year. During the third and fourth academic year, candidates take a combination of both disciplines. View the full curriculum for the JD/MBA program for more information.
Students are required to meet the admissions requirements of both schools in order to be eligible for the program. Prospective applicants are encouraged to apply simultaneously and independently to both schools. Typically, the student will file an application with the School of Law – Newark, take the Law School Admissions Test, and present the report of undergraduate work provided by the Law School Data Assembly Service. Applicants will submit the separate, self-managed application to Rutgers Business School: Graduate Programs — Newark and New Brunswick.
Students must apply and be admitted to both schools. Applications and course catalogs are available through the Rutgers Business School Office of Graduate Admissions and the Office of Admission, Rutgers School of Law – Newark.
