JD/MBA Degree Requirements

JD/MBA students start at the Law school for one year, then join our Part-Time MBA for the remainder of their law program for a total of 3.5 years. JD/MBA students can apply 9 credits towards their MBA from their LAW courses; thus, only four (4) MBA electives are needed.

  • Core Classes: Core coursework will be completed at the UNH Manchester campus.
  • Electives: Electives will be completed at either our Manchester or Durham campus, or online.
  • Student Availability: Due to the nature of the dual degree program, JD and MBA classes are scheduled in both day and evening time slots. Therefore, the program is incompatible with full-time employment.
  • GPA: Students must have a minimum 3.0 GPA at graduation, and earn a B- or better in all classes.
  • Residency Opportunity Available: A three-day financial residency in NYC and an international residency are available for interested JD/MBA students if the required elective is taken and additional fees are paid.
