The MBA/JD is a four-year, full-time concurrent degree program offered by ASU’s Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law and the W. P. Carey School of Business. The program allows you to combine the disciplines of law and business. Upon graduation, you can elect to pursue a traditional law career or a career in business.
You need to apply to, and be accepted by, both the full-time MBA and JD programs. Current ASU students already enrolled in the law program should contact the W. P. Carey Office of Admissions for information.
- You spend one year studying business courses at the W. P. Carey School of Business and three years studying at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law. Both degrees are conferred once all requirements have been completed for both programs.
- An elective course can be taken in any business area during the last trimester of the first year. You also complete Strategic Management (MGT 589) during your time at the W. P. Carey School. The summer internship is not required.
- MBA and JD share 12 credit hours between the programs of study. Thirty-six credit hours are completed during the year of study at the W. P. Carey School.
