JD/MBA Dual Degree Program

USF's JD/MBA dual degree program prepares students for careers in the increasingly interdependent worlds of law and business. The four year program saves time and tuition while setting you apart with the multidisciplinary expertise employers want.

JD MBA Curriculum

This four-year program, offered jointly with the USF School of Management, is designed to provide law school graduates with an in-depth perspective of corporate business practices, and the business skills necessary to successfully manage law firms, larger businesses or non-profit organizations. With a strong emphasis on teamwork, the MBA program helps you to develop an entrepreneurial approach to solve a variety of managerial problems in both startup and corporate settings.

Students enrolled in the dual degree program complete the first two years of study exclusively at the law school, and spend the third year at the business school. 

This dual degree provides a cost and time savings of up to 24 units compared to completing each degree separately. Up to 12 of the required 84 JD units are accepted as crossover courses from the MBA program and up to 12 of the required 56 MBA units are accepted as crossover courses from the JD program. Separate admission is required and each school applies its own standards and requirements for admission and continued participation.

Full-time JD students must complete the first year exclusively in the law school program with a minimum cumulative GPA above 2.50 at the end of their first year in order to be eligible for the JD/MBA program. After completing their second year at the law school, students must complete their third year exclusively in the full-time MBA cohort program. Part-time JD students who wish to enroll in the joint program must (1) convert to full-time status before the start of the second year, (2) complete six law units in the summer immediately following the first year, (3) complete the first and second year exclusively in the law school, and (4) complete the third year exclusively in the full-time MBA cohort program. MBA courses are offered in fall, spring and summer terms, and follow a cohort model for the required core courses.
