JD/MBA Curriculum

Freeman offers a 3-year and a 4-year option for law students to complete an MBA along with their JD.

Please visit the Tulane Law School page for more information on the JD curriculum. For more information, or to request a sample schedule of any of our programs, please contact admissions at abfadmit@tulane.edu.

3-Year JD/MBA

Our three-year, accelerated JD/MBA program allows students to earn both a JD from Tulane Law School and an MBA from the Freeman School in the same amount of time as most JD programs. In addition to the Law School curriculum, students in the three-year program will take 45 credits in Freeman's full-time MBA program. Please note: Students in the three-year program do not participate in Freeman's global leadership module. 

Students complete a summer semester in the business school, either prior to the first year of law school or between the first and second years. In the second and third year, students complete coursework for both degrees concurrently.

  • Year 1: JD (students spend a summer semester in the business school before or after the first year of law school)
  • Year 2: JD/MBA
  • Year 3: JD/MBA

The first two years are typically spent in the Law School. The third year is dedicated to MBA coursework at Freeman, and in the fourth year students take courses for both degrees concurrently.

Accelerated One-Year MBA for JDs

Because of their exceptional academic preparation, recent law school graduates and practicing lawyers may complete the MBA independent of their law school curriculum by enrolling in Freeman's full-time, accelerated one-year MBA program following completion of law school. Students often report that an MBA provides an advantage in securing employment.

The one-year MBA is a 54-credit hour degree program based on the Professional MBA curriculum, but recent law school graduates may waive credit hours based on their previous academic experience. The program starts in June with an intensive summer semester followed by traditional fall and spring semesters. Coursework can be customized with electives that support your specific career interests. Click here to view the One-Year MBA Curriculum
