Dual Degree Programs

  • J.D./M.A. Program (International Political Economy and Development)


    Students must apply to and be admitted to each school independently, although such admission need not coincide. Law students may apply to the Graduate School at any time while in residence at the Law School, and it is recommended that they complete their course of studies at the Law School before beginning study at the Graduate School.

    A student in residence at the Law School may take one or more courses at the Graduate School as long as the total number of classroom hours per week does not exceed the number permitted by Law School regulations. Students should email Fordham Law, Professor Thomas H. Lee for further information and advice.

    Apply to the M.A. Program

  • J.D./M.B.A. Program

    The J.D./M.B.A. program enables full-time students to complete the J.D. and M.B.A. degree requirements in as little as four calendar years rather than the five it might take if each degree were to be pursued separately.


    Due to the required 4-week pre-term Gabelli Launch (beginning the last week of July each year), only first-year law students can apply for the J.D./M.B.A. Students must apply and be admitted to each school separately. Students already enrolled in the Law School may be accepted into this dual-degree program by submitting their application to the Gabelli School by the required application deadlines

    Apply to the M.B.A. Program

  • J.D./M.S.W. Program


    Students must apply and be admitted to each school independently, although such admission need not coincide. Each school’s decision is based solely on that school’s selection criteria. Students should email Fordham Law Professor Cheryl Bader for further information.

    Apply to the M.S.W. Program

  • M.B.A./M.S.L. Program

    The Dual Master of Business Administration/Master of Studies in Law (M.B.A./M.S.L.) degree combines a comprehensive business education with a specialized concentration in legal compliance to working professionals within as little as two years of part-time studies.


    Students apply to this dual-degree program via a single Gabelli School of Business application from the beginning of their studies. The application requirements are the same as those for the Professional M.B.A. (there are no additional application requirements for the M.S.L. degree).

    Accepted students are part of the Professional M.B.A. and the M.S.L. in Corporate Compliance degree programs.
