J.D./M.B.A.- Juris Doctor and Master of Business Administration

The J.D./M.B.A. is a dual degree program which allows students to earn both a Juris Doctorate and a Master of Business Administration degree in 3 ½ years, saving time and money when compared to pursing the two degrees separately.  Students complete year one at the UNH School of Law, attend the Full-Time M.B.A. program at UNH in Durham in year two, and return to the law school for the duration of their J.D. program.  The J.D./M.B.A. allows students to gain comprehensive knowledge of the interconnection between law and business to better position themselves for success.

J.D./M.B.A. students are fully integrated into the Full-Time M.B.A. cohort. Refer to the Full-Time M.B.A. page for more detailed program information.
