Full-Time M.B.A. / J.M. Dual Degree Program

The MBA/JM dual degree program is designed to enhance a student's business knowledge and  professional pursuits with legal grounding relevant to their profession or industry.

The JM is a 24-credit-hour program that allows students to customize their coursework to meet their individual career needs, and may be completed full-time in one-year.  While there are many JM specialization tracks available, following are several that may be relevant to MBA students: 

  • Business Law
  • Environmental
  • Healthcare
  • Intellectual Property
  • Investment Banking
  • Labor and Employment
  • Media & Communications
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Real Estate

MBA/JM dual degree students would earn an MBAfrom Goizueta Business School in addition to a J.M. degree from Emory Law School; neither degree would be awarded until the requirements for both are complete.  This arrangement will allow MBA/JM students to add the JM credential with the addition of two semesters for the One-Year MBA program and one semester for the Two-Year MBA program.

While enrolled in the JM program, MBA/JM dual degree students must carry at least 12 credit hours each semester at the Law School.


Scholarships for the JM program may be available to students pursing the MBA/JM dual degree.  All applicants will be considered for a scholarship during the application process, and decisions made on a holistic basis.

Application Process

All MBA/JM dual degree applications will be reviewed and application decisions made independently by Goizueta Business School and Emory Law School.  Both schools must agree to admit the applicants to the MBA/JM dual degree program.  Should one school deny admission to an applicant, the applicant would be denied admission to the MBA/JM dual degree program.  The applicant may still be accepted to either academic program independent of the other academic program.
