International Business and Law, I.M.B.A. & J.D.

Darla Moore School of Business
Joseph F. Rice School of Law

As business and law become increasingly interconnected, we are pleased to offer a cross-disciplinary combination J.D./M.B.A. degree that will enhance your knowledge of each of these two subjects.

J.D./M.B.A. students complete their first two years of law school before starting their M.B.A. in their third year. This enables them to complete the J.D./M.B.A. in three and a half years or the J.D./IMBA in four. Students can use up to nine credit hours from the law program to satisfy Moore School electives, and vice versa.
