Many of the most effective Fortune 500 CEOs are lawyers because lawyers know how to ask the right questions and analyze problems from different perspectives. Our dual JD/MBA degree will prepare you to navigate the modern intersections of law and business.

Program Overview

Whether you want to play a transformative role in health care reform or become a leader in the management consulting industry, this program will give you a unique perspective on how organizations operate and how they interact with the law. You’ll develop a versatile set of negotiating and analytical skills that will give you a competitive edge as a corporate lawyer, public policymaker or entrepreneur.

Both the School of Law and the School of Business believe in collaborative, hands-on approaches to mastering their respective disciplines. You’ll spend time honing your leadership and critical thinking skills in group work and mock trials. You’ll also learn to work with real clients and apply your legal and business knowledge in our clinics and externships, where you can get practical experience by representing clients from the local community in disputes with the IRS and providing other services. You can also gain a global perspective through the School of Business’ experiential learning trips to Asia, Europe and South America.

Beginning on your first day, you’ll receive as much support as you need, through services such as our Day One mentoring program, which pairs you with a faculty mentor as well as a second- or third-year law student for guidance. The vast alumni networks of both schools will also be valuable assets during your search for externships and jobs. Our alumni are working at a variety of prominent firms including Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and GE, and are active in Quinnipiac’s various career fairs and recruiting events.

Forty-six credits are normally required for the MBA, and 86 are normally required for the JD. However, the joint degree program requires only 34 business credits and 77 law credits, a saving of 21 credits. A student in the joint program may not obtain either degree until the requirements for both have been met.

Each school will asssist in adapting the program to the needs and interests of the enrolled student by approving schedules and joint credits for courses. Students may attend either full-time or part-time.


Application Timeline

We operate under a rolling-admission system, but suggest submitting your application by March 1 for priority fall admission and scholarship consideration.

Candidates for the Dean’s Fellows full-tuition awards should apply by February 1.

Admission Requirements

To enroll in the joint degree program, a student must file separate applications to and be accepted by both the School of Law and the School of Business. Students may begin at either school. 

It is possible for students who have not yet completed their degree requirements for one program to apply to the other school to be considered for a joint degree.

Admissions for these programs are handled separately, but a student should inform both admissions offices of an interest in pursuing the joint degree. The earlier you are accepted into both programs and declare pursuit of both degrees, the more beneficial the joint degree program is in the practical savings of time and credits.

Students accepted into the School of Law are not required to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). 

Upon admission to the joint degree program, the enrolled student must meet with the Director of the MBA program and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs of the School of Law for academic counseling. 

The most important factors considered are:

  • Undergraduate scholastic record
  • Law School Admission Test (LSAT) scores

We also weigh factors such as:

  • Applicant’s personal statement
  • Letters of recommendation
  • Advanced degrees
  • Life and work experience
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Applicant’s ability to enhance the diversity of perspectives represented in our student body

Equal Opportunity

Quinnipiac University School of Law supports equality of educational and employment opportunity. No person shall be denied admission to any educational program or activity or be denied employment on the basis of race, color, disability, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, or ethnic or national origin.

        Why I Chose Asia Over The US And Europe For My MBA, At CUHK

        June 30, 2016
        Varun Magoon is nearing the end of his studies at Hong Kong’s CUHK Business School

        Media Coverage by BusinessBecause:

        India is home to the third largest group of GMAT-sitters behind the US and China. And Indians are increasingly looking to MBA programs within Asia over courses in Europe and the US.

        “Asia is becoming the global economic powerhouse, and Hong Kong is its de facto financial center, making it the perfect location for an MBA student”, says Varun Magoon, an MBA student at Hong Kong’s CUHK Business School.

        Part of a burgeoning generation of Indian MBAs, Varun is laying solid foundations for a career in Asia. He boasts a wealth of experience in technical and consulting roles, having worked as an engineer for The Toyota Group and a strategy consultant for KPMG.

        For Varun, CUHK was the perfect option, a top Asian school recommended to him by several successful Indian alumni. And he also secured the CUHK MBA Excellence Scholarship.

        Why did you decide to do an MBA at CUHK?

        I’m an engineer by profession, but I wanted to progress into management consulting and corporate leadership roles.

        I also knew that I wanted to continue working in Asia after my MBA, and the one-year format at CUHK was very appealing, considering most Indian and American programs are two years long.

        CUHK also offered me the opportunity to study an extra four months abroad after that year, which I’m looking forward to. Finally, Hong Kong offers many leadership development programs, which I hope to secure a place on.

        What should prospective applicants take into account when deciding on an MBA?

        You really need to take a step back and consider why you personally want to pursue an MBA. The best strategy is to consider where you want to be five years from now with regards to location, industry and role, and choose the program most likely to help you realize those dreams.

        In my opinion, the alumni network is really important for applicants as well. You’re buying into an exclusive club with an MBA, so you want to make sure it’s the best one possible. Finally, especially if you didn’t grow up abroad, you should make the effort to connect with as many international students on your course as possible.

        Do you feel that your KPMG consulting experience aided your application?

        Most certainly. Having come from an engineering background, being able to work on corporate strategy and liaising with clients was very useful, as it prepared me for various aspects of the MBA and ensured that I had a better cross-section of work experience.

        On balance, I think the experience I gained was more important than the KPMG brand name was, but I can’t deny that it looks good on a CV.

        How has your scholarship at CUHK benefited you?

        The scholarship covers 30% of my tuition fee and is bestowed on the basis of academic performance, professional and personal accomplishments, and international working experience.

        Any MBA is a huge investment, so my scholarship does a great deal in easing the financial burden on my shoulders. However, I also consider it a confidence boost, as recognition for my previous achievements has made me feel more valued by the school.

        How have you gained from your MBA experience so far?

        At CUHK, our faculty was largely international. Learning about financial markets from an American, operations management from a Greek, and so on, gave me a well-rounded view of global business.

        My class was very international as well, so I learned a great deal from their perspectives. I also had the amazing opportunity to participate in a case competition at SDA Bocconi through CUHK, in which I competed with top MBA students from other schools, and was able to put what theory I had learned into practice.

        What is the highlight of your CUHK MBA experience so far?

        At the end of the CUHK MBA, you’re offered the opportunity to work as an external consultant for a partner company here in Hong Kong.

        They call this module a ‘live project’, and I chose to do mine with IDG Capital Partners. It’s been a great opportunity for me because I’ve made some excellent contacts, and one of their executives is a CUHK alumnus. I’ve gained a comprehensive overview of private equity and venture capital, and I’ve learned a lot about business valuation.

        It’s a fantastic opportunity that I’d recommend to anyone studying at CUHK.

        What are your plans for the future?

        Straight after finishing my studies at CUHK, I’m heading to America for four months to complete my MBA at The University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, with a focus on strategy and operations over the term.

        Apart from that, I’m doing an internship this summer with Gap Inc. in Hong Kong, which I hope will result in a place on their two-year MBA rotational leadership development program.

        Affordable Schools

        The 10 Most Affordable Law Schools in the United States

        Our list of affordable law schools includes schools with a solid reputation which also provide affordable tuition costs.

        If you’re considering going to law school, it goes without saying you’ll want to assess a law school’s reputation, success rate of graduates passing the bar exam and other factors of overall quality.

        From Our Alumni

        “Northeastern’s programs are led by skilled and experienced industry leaders who are committed to the engagement and growth of their students.” — Stephen O’Halloran, ’14

        Experiential Learning

        When it comes to giving students the opportunity to learn by doing, there’s simply no place like Northeastern. Our signature Cooperative Legal Education Program guarantees you a year of full-time work experience. No other law school program comes close — indeed, The National Jurist ranks Northeastern as the #1 law school for practical training.

        While other law schools might give students the chance to work over the summer or experience a part-time internship or externship, only Northeastern integrates four quarters of full-time employment into its curriculum, giving you four opportunities to:

        • Collaborate full time with working lawyers, contributing to the resolution of actual cases for real clients
        • Make an impact in a professional setting just about anywhere in the world, from New York to South Africa
        • Try out a variety of work environments and explore diverse areas of the law in depth

        The benefits of co-op extend far beyond graduating with an impressive resume. You and your peers will bring lessons learned on co-op into the classroom, creating a vibrant intellectual exchange that builds with each new experience. You may end up accepting a full-time position with one of your co-op employers, as a significant number of our graduates do. Most important, you’ll have the experience to know exactly where you want to go in your career and the confidence and credentials to get there.

        At the D’Amore-McKim School of Business, our integration of academic thinking with authentic experiential learning opportunities has created a unique educational model that defines the standard for business education’s future.
