Joint Degree Programs

Business

Indiana Law and the Kelley School of Business offer three programs (leading to the law and MBA, MBAA, and MPA degrees listed below) that permit a student to acquire two degrees in four years instead of the customary five years. An accelerated JD and MBA program allows students to complete two degrees in three years. Applicants to the accelerated JD/MBA must have completed a minimum of two years of real-world business experience.

Each degree has required course work. Degrees are awarded simultaneously, and all requirements in both schools must be completed in order to receive either degree. Students pursuing the JD/MBA in Accounting typically specialize in taxation or financial tracks.

Current Indiana Law students may apply for admission to the Kelley School of Business before the end of the second year of legal study. Students enrolled in the Kelley School of Business may apply for admission to the Indiana Law no later than the end of the first year of study.
