The nation’s only online joint J.D./M.B.A. degree program is a collaboration between Syracuse University College of Law and the Whitman School of Management.
In a globalized, interconnected marketplace, business leaders must constantly consider legal and regulatory frameworks across the spectrum of daily business transactions and legal considerations increasingly occupy a prominent place in boardroom discussions. An unprecedented option for students who wish to change careers or improve credentials, the online joint J.D./M.B.A. provides even greater access to the high-quality legal and business education offered by two nationally ranked schools.
The online joint J.D./M.B.A. combines the College of Law’s ground-breaking, ABA-accredited JDinteractive online law degree program with the Whitman School’s highly ranked online Master in Business Administration program.
- Before starting the online M.B.A. portion of the joint degree, JDi students must be separately admitted to the Whitman School, have completed 34 credits of law school, and meet all defined academic requirements.
- Online J.D./M.B.A. students earn their master’s degree in business administration through the Whitman School’s Online M.B.A.
Recognized for its strong alumni outcomes and career preparation, the Online M.B.A. is ranked among the Top 40 Best Online M.B.A.s by U.S. News & World Report and among the Top 25 Best Online M.B.A.s by The Princeton Review. Accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the Online M.B.A. features the same curriculum as the on-campus M.B.A. program and blends live, online classes and hands-on residency experiences.
