How to Apply for the M.B.A./J.D.:
Stage 1: Students must apply and be admitted to both the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research for admission to the regular degree program in Law and the MBA. To facilitate academic and career planning, it is strongly suggested that these applications be made simultaneously.
Stage 2: Students who are accepted to both the MBA and JD programs will be admitted to the integrated program, and will proceed to attend first year in either Faculty. Such students will be granted a deferred admission to the other Faculty in the program. This special deferred admission will be revoked if the applicant’s performance in the first program fails to meet the first-year academic standards of the program. In such a case, the applicant may re-apply for regular admission to the second degree program.
Applications will also be considered for entry to the program from candidates who are attending the first year of either the JD or MBA programs. They must meet the admissions requirements and application deadline for the program for which they are seeking entry.
