J.D./M.B.A. Program

The J.D./M.B.A. program is a joint degree program of the Maurice A. Deane School of Law and the Hofstra University Frank G. Zarb School of Business.

The program is typically completed in four years, although students can complete the program in less time by taking summer session and/or winter intersession courses and by seeking credit for certain business courses taken as an undergraduate.

The J.D./M.B.A. program provides students with a strong and comprehensive foundation for careers in both law and business and provides:

  • knowledge of the administrative process necessary for attorneys pursuing careers in business and not-for-profit institutions;
  • specialized proficiency in fields auxiliary to law, such as accounting, banking, finance, investment, marketing, real estate and taxation; and
  • knowledge of the economic implications of legal processes.
