The fees are the same as if one takes the degrees separately, with the exception of some ancillary fees. The advantage of the concurrent program is that it will take one year less than completing the degrees consecutively would take.
The JD/MBA program will officially start in September, 2024 with the intake of new first year law students. The program is designed so that first year law students interested in the concurrent program may apply for the MBA in accordance with the Stu Clark Graduate School admission dates and requirements. If law students are accepted to the MBA program, their second year will be at Asper and they will take all MBA courses. Third and fourth year is a combination of Law and MBA courses. Essentially, the mandatory Law courses will be recognized as the electives for the MBA program, and the MBA mandatory courses will be recognized as the electives for the JD program. Only students enrolled in the JD/MBA concurrent degrees program will have electives recognized for both degrees.
Graduates will receive two degrees on two parchments: the Juris Doctor and the Master of Business Administration.
