It seems as though every decision made in business is surrounded with some
type of legal implication. Attorneys with an in-depth understanding of the
theory, procedures and strategies used in business put themselves at an
advantage for placement in corporate law practice. Students interested
in receiving business training in addition to their law degree should consider
Capital University Law School's J.D./Master in Business Administration.
This program produces graduates who understand both the practice of law and the
complexities of the business world.
The J.D./MBA program is coordinated with Capital University's School of
Management which is accredited through the Association of College Business
Schools and Programs (ACBSP). Capital's MBA program blends the theory of
business administration with the practical aspects of the contemporary corporate
environment. The program has been a fixture in the Columbus community since the
early 1970s and offers an executive (part-time) program.
Graduates of the J.D./MBA program enjoy the flexibility and additional
opportunities available by pursuing a career in law, business or both. The
expertise that they develop through the education in both disciplines provides
graduates with a highly desired skill set among employers. Capital graduates
have been placed in many local and national companies such The Limited,
Nationwide Insurance, eBay, Boeing and Wendy's International.
MBA courses are offered during the evening, with occasional Saturday classes,
through Capital University's MBA program. The Law School offers J.D. courses in a full-time or part-time
format. Students who pursue the joint degree program on a part-time basis are
generally able to complete both degrees within 5 1/2 years.
Those who choose to study as a full-time student can normally complete both
programs in four years and three summers. The structure of the joint degree
program shaves 18 credit hours off the pursuit of both degrees separately.
Students must apply and be accepted to both programs. To learn more about the
MBA visit Capital's website.
