Earn two degrees faster
By completing your MBA and JD at the same time, students earn both degrees in four years instead of five.
As a JD armed with business skills like leadership, business development, and negotiation, you will stand out in a crowded field of recent JD graduates.
Become a leader in law
This program was designed for students who want to pursue a leadership position in the legal field.
Two premier institutions
With an MBA from Johns Hopkins and a JD from the University of Maryland, you will benefit from the combined knowledge, network, and experience of two highly respected institutions.
The JD/MBA curriculum was designed for students who want to pursue a leadership position in their legal careers. The MBA curriculum will equip legal students with the skills they need to effectively lead and manage legal teams.
The JD/MBA curriculum is designed so students can complete two degrees in less time. The Johns Hopkins MBA is 54 credits, 12 of which may be applied from the JD program. The JD program is 85 credits, nine of which may be applied from the MBA. A JD/MBA student is required to complete a total of 118 credits.
Students in the program have two options for pursuing this degree. They can choose to start in the JD program or the MBA program, but they must complete the first year of coursework in one program before beginning coursework in the second.
