MBA / JD


Course Description

Distinguish yourself from the competition by obtaining two highly sought-after degrees.

The joint Master of Business Administration/Juris Doctor (MBA/JD) Program offered by the Schulich School of Business together with Osgoode Hall Law School features a unique combination of courses to prepare students for the demands of leading-edge careers in business, law and a variety of fields in which the two disciplines intersect.

The full-time joint degree program gives you the added value of completing your studies in just four years – one year less than if both degrees were undertaken separately. Admission is required by both Schulich and Osgoode Hall Law School.

Learn more about a number of initiatives and programs for students of the Schulich MBA/JD at the Hennick Centre for Business and Law, the first Canadian centre to promote and develop joint business and law scholarship and education.

Career Opportunities

With the integrative programs offered through the varied functional and industry-specific specializations of both the MBA and JD program, students can pursue careers in any industry. Typically the banks have recruited MBA/JD students in their capital markets roles, as they bring the legal knowledge for structuring the financial transaction. Students pursuing corporate law also work closely in all industries.

Throughout the MBA/JD program, you will have access to Schulich’s Career Development Centre (CDC), offering a wealth of innovative programs, resources and individualized mentoring and coaching to help you launch your career. Meet alumni, recruiters and industry leaders at corporate information sessions and other CDC events, and receive online access to the very best career tools available. Recruiters value the communication, management and legal skills that Schulich MBA/JD graduates possess and regularly hire Schulich MBA/JDs.
