JD/MBA Joint Degree

We're creating the perfect mix of business and law for those who want to do it all.


The Juris Doctor / Master of Business Administration joint degree program provides the opportunity to study intensively how the law governs such matters as the financing of business ventures, the responsibility of a firm's managers to its owners and the management of financial and business risk. Students in this degree program complete graduate courses from the College of Law and the College of Business at Florida State University. Graduates of the program become business leaders or corporate counsel in cities throughout Florida and the nation. The JD/MBA has been incorporated into the law school's new focus on law, economics and business, and scholarships are available from the law school to select students interested in pursuing this joint degree.

Applicants must first be admitted to the FSU College of Law. Applicants must meet the admission requirements for both programs. Both the GMAT and LSAT must be taken in order to be considered. Applicants to the MBA program must have a bachelor's degree, an upper division (junior and senior) grade point average of 3.0, and a minimum score of 550 on the GMAT. Once a student is accepted into The College of Law, he or she must then complete an application for the joint degree program. Application forms are available at the College of Law's Office of Admissions and Records. This normally is done during the first year of law school. The first year of study is completed at The College of Law.
