Program description

Master of Business Administration/Juris Doctor (MBA/JD)

The joint Master of Business Administration/Juris Doctor (MBA/JD) Program offered by the Schulich School of Business together with Osgoode Hall Law School features a unique combination of courses to prepare students for the demands of leading-edge careers in business, law and a variety of fields in which the two disciplines intersect.

The full-time joint degree program gives you the added value of completing your studies in just four years one year less than if both degrees were undertaken separately. Admission is required by both Schulich and Osgoode Hall Law School.

Learn more about a number of initiatives and programs for students of the Schulich MBA/JD at the Hennick Centre for Business and Law, the first Canadian centre to promote and develop joint business and law scholarship and education.

To be eligible for consideration, each applicant must be admitted to both the MBA program at the Schulich School of Business and the JD program at Osgoode Hall Law School. Refer to each program page for general admission requirements and application deadlines. Note: admission to each program independently does not result in automatic admission to the joint MBA/JD program.

A limited number of students in Schulich MBA 1 or Osgoode 1L will be considered each year for admission into the second year of the MBA/JD joint program (4 year program only).*

In addition to the standard admission requirements for each program, students must also have achieved the following:
