Capitalize on the interconnected relationship between business and law

Offered in collaboration with Mercer University’s School of Business and School of Law, the Combined Master of Business Administration (MBA)/Juris Doctor (JD) program develops students into versatile practitioners and advisors by providing a foundation in both legal and business practices. Students have the opportunity to sharpen critical thinking and analytical skills to gain a greater understanding of how organizations function to provide well-informed counsel on complex legal issues.

  • Learn key economics, accounting, finance, marketing, and management concepts
  • Apply certain course credits between programs to satisfy both degree requirements
  • Build a diverse network of colleagues and professors in both business and law

Program structure

Students must meet the admissions requirements for both the School of Law and the School of Business. Students will apply to each school and must be admitted to both schools before qualifying for the combined degree program. Students will complete the first full year of law school on Mercer’s Macon campus, then enroll in Evening MBA courses on Mercer’s Macon campus. Business and law courses are taken simultaneously during the second and third years of law school.

Professional development

Upon successful completion of both programs, Mercer graduates are prepared to pursue a variety of opportunities in areas including financial or consulting sectors, business law, contract law, and more.
