JD/MBA

In partnership with Fordham Law School, The Gabelli Graduate School offers an exciting new combined program of graduate study in law and business administration.

How Do You Benefit?

Eligible for the dual JD/MBA program are First-Year Law students as well as Full-time MBA students; allowing participants to complete both degrees in as little as 3.5 years -- as opposed to 5 years separately.

When to Apply?

Due to the required four-week pre-term Gabelli Launch (beginning the last week of July each year), only First-year Law School students (1L) are eligible to apply for the JD/MBA.
Please note: any Summer legal internships must be completed prior to the pre-term Gabelli Launch.

Students must apply and be admitted to the School of Law and School of Business separately. Students who are already enrolled in the School of Law may be accepted into this dual-degree program by submitting their application to the School of Business by the required application deadlines. During their time at Fordham, JD/MBA students alternate their studies between the two schools, typical to the following program sequencing:

Year One Fall I
School of Law
(15 credits)
Spring I
School of Law
(17 credits)
Summer I
