The M.B.A. degree
program for current J.D. students has been designed to promote integration
between the fields of law and business administration. Covering areas such as
Accounting, Information Technology Management (ITM), Marketing and Management,
it enables students to earn both degrees in four years of study, rather than the
usual five. The program is designed so that certain elective courses may be
applicable to both degrees. Recipients of both the J.D. and M.B.A. degrees hold
professional credentials for a broad range of careers in corporate law, business
consulting, teaching, and research.
Admission RequirementsThe applicant must score well on
the LSAT. The GMAT, a requirement for M.B.A. admission, will be waived in lieu
of the LSAT.
Applicants will preferably have an undergraduate GPA of 3.0
or better and submit academic transcripts, three letters of recommendation, a
resume, and a personal statement. All applicants must be matriculated in the
J.D. program at Albany Law School.
Current J.D. students are strongly
encouraged to submit personal statements and recommendation letters designed for
admission into a M.B.A. program. Specifically, personal statements and
recommendation letters should be tailored for consideration by a M.B.A.
Admissions Committee. It is suggested that applications include at least one
letter of recommendation from current Albany Law School
Interviews are not required; however, they are not uncommon and
may be requested of applicants.
