The University of Maine School of Law offers a joint degree program combining the Juris Doctor (J.D.) and the Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree with the University of Southern Maine’s School of Business, which is accredited by AACSB International.
- Students complete two degrees in four years instead of five years.
- The M.B.A. program partners with the business community and emphasizes the skills needed to inform and guide organizational change. Students develop cross-functional business solutions to “real-world” problems and cultivate a broad critical perspective, interpersonal skills, and the analytical tools of management.
- Both the J.D. and the M.B.A. programs emphasize an appreciation of the international and ethical contexts of professional practice.
