Combined Master of Business Administration and Juris Doctor

The Seidman College of Business and Michigan State University College of Law offer the dual M.B.A./J.D. The partnership enables students to transfer 12 credits of Seidman M.B.A. courses to the MSU COL J.D. program and 12 credits of J.D. credits to the M.B.A. program, thus reducing the total number of graduate credit hours required to complete both programs from 121 to approximately 100. Prerequisites for both programs must be met in addition to the graduate credits. Participating students must meet the admission standards of each school and must be admitted to both programs prior to registering for coursework that will be transferred to either program.

The transfer work from MSU COL will complete the elective portion of the M.B.A. program, and ethics course from MSU COL will substitute for BUS 677. Thus, students pursuing this degree will complete, in addition to the M.B.A. prerequisites, the nine required three-credit core courses. Specific coursework to be transferred to the M.B.A. from MSU COL must be planned with the M.B.A. program director. Students are referred to the associate dean for Academic Affairs of MSU COL for advising for the J.D. and the specific M.B.A. transfer courses.
