A J.D./MBA from Oklahoma City University School of Law is an accelerated, immersive, interdisciplinary program offering graduates a unique hybrid skillset, enriching your understanding of the world.
You’ll graduate ready to tackle some of business and society’s great challenges with a keen understanding of the relationships between the law, economics and society, and it requires 12 fewer credit hours than completing each degree on its own.
Law students may apply to the Meinders School of Business at any time prior to the completion of their fifth semester of law school. (Each summer semester counts as one-half of a full semester.)
Once you have been admitted to the School of Law, it is not necessary to complete a separate graduate school application. Instead, the GMAT may be waived, and the law school will forward a copy of your law school application, transcript, personal statement, résumé and letters of recommendation to the Graduate Admissions Office for consideration. Applicants must meet all admission requirements of Meinders School of Business.
If you wish to begin business courses prior to being admitted to the law school, you must apply separately through Graduate Admissions.
Business students may apply to the School of Law at any time prior to completion of 12 credit hours in the Meinders School of Business. A Meinders School of Business student must begin law studies in the first August following the decision to pursue the joint degree.
In the School of Law, candidates must complete all required courses, as well as Income Tax, Agency and Partnership and Secured Transactions. In the Meinders School of Business, candidates are exempt from taking Legal Environment and International Transactions and Business Ethics in the MBA generalist track.
GPAs for J.D./MBA candidates will be calculated separately. Your law school GPA and rank will be determined based only on law school classes. You will receive a separate GPA for business coursework.
