JD/MBA Admissions

Admission to the JD/MBA Dual Degree Program is competitive with limited seats available. Prospective dual degree candidates are encouraged to apply early in the fall application cycle.

Note: The Professional MBA (PMBA) requirement of a minimum of two years of significant work experience is waived for JD/MBA Dual Degree Applicants.

Note: The GMAT requirement has been waived for JD/MBA students entering Fall 2021.

Admissions Requirements

  • For the JD program, the selection process is based on a variety of factors.The two principal factors are the applicant’s cumulative undergraduate GPA and LSAT score. Other factors that may be considered include: institutions attended; majors and/or disciplines; activities in school and professional organizations; community service; and employment experiences. 
  • For the MBA program, the principal factors considered in the evaluation process are the cumulative undergraduate GPA, LSAT score, and resume. 
  • Acceptance to the JD program does not guarantee admission to the MBA program and vice versa. 
  • An applicant offered admission to the JD/MBA program must complete a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university prior to fall enrollment.
  • The MBA requires specific undergraduate course work and most individuals who completed a baccalaureate degree in business will find that most, if not all, of their prerequisite course requirements have already been met. Entering MBA students who do not meet most or all of the prerequisite course requirements are encouraged to consider Massey’s Summer Business Institute, which is a twelve-week program covering all the foundational undergraduate business courses.
