Dual Degree JD/MBA in Law and Business
Applicants for the dual JD/MBA degree should apply separately for admission to both the Quinlan School of Business and to the School of Law, indicating their intent to pursue a dual degree. Alternatively, law school students with a 158 LSAT and who have completed their first year of law studies with a 3.0 GPA and are in good standing will be granted automatic admission to the MBA program upon application. Students work with an advisor in each school to plan their respective programs of study.
The dual-degree program in business and law enables the student to complete both degrees with six fewer courses than would be required if the degrees were pursued separately. Students completing the dual degree will earn an MBA with a specialization in business law as well as the JD degree.
In a growing global economy, the career paths of business and law professionals have become increasingly convergent. The role of an attorney in the day-to-day management of businesses has become vital, as the modern business professional needs immediate access to sound legal advice.
To succeed in the cross-section of these dynamic markets, a multi-faceted education is critical. A dual-degree program provides training that gives students the knowledge, skills and background they need to function in both law and business sectors.
Graduates from Loyola University Chicago's JD/MBA program can pursue careers in the legal and business professions, especially where those areas overlap. A dual degree is appropriate for students pursuing a career in banking, management, government regulations, consulting or corporate positions in legal, tax or accounting departments. There are endless opportunities for an individual with a dual degree in today's market.
