J.D./M.B.A. Program Information
Our complex economic and social environment imposes significant demands on today's manager. Developments in areas such as product liability, tax reform, social responsibility of business, consumerism, franchising, and increased regulation of business have significantly affected the manager's role.
Hofstra University's J.D./M.B.A. program is designed to train managers to be aware of these developments and to develop business strategies which reflect the legal considerations. In the past individuals seeking both J.D. and M.B.A. degrees often had to attend separate universities and pursue these degrees independently. Men and women enrolled in Hofstra's combined J.D./M.B.A. can receive both degrees within four years, are able to integrate both fields in their course work, and can participate in field experiences which relate to both legal and business decision making.
The J.D./M.B.A. program provides students with: Knowledge of administrative processes necessary for attorneys pursuing careers in business and not-for-profit institutions. Specialized proficiency in fields auxiliary to law, such as banking, finance, investments, accounting, taxation, marketing, and real estate. Knowledge of the economic implications of the legal process.
Hofstra J.D./M.B.A. students must fulfill all M.B.A. requirements regarding the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE). Students in good standing at the end of the first year of law school are eligible for admission if they meet the admission standards of the School of Business. Alternatively, students may make simultaneous application to the schools of law and business. Law students must complete the usual M.B.A. application and submit the required undergraduate and graduate transcripts as well as their GMAT scores to the Graduate Admissions Office. The regular application fee may be waived by a program coordinator.
