Dual Degree Admissions Procedure

J.D.-M.B.A. Program

A student is required to be admitted to both the E. J. Ourso College of Business and the LSU Law Center in order to be approved for the combined credit. Admission to each will be determined independently by the faculty of each school. This cooperative agreement between the two faculties leaves each degree program with separate admission requirements, with separate first year requirements, and with separate degree requirements as determined exclusively by the faculty recommending the awarding of the degree.

Tuition and fees will be paid to both the Law Center and the LSU campus according to the number of credit hours for which the student is registered on each campus.

For more information regarding the M.B.A. program, contact Dana Hart at dhart@lsu.edu

J.D.-M.M.C. Program

Applicants to the program must be separately admitted into the J.D. and M.M.C. programs. For information on the M.M.C. component of the dual degree program, contact Margaret DeFleur, Associate Dean for Graduate Studies at the Manship School, by emailing defleur@lsu.edu or calling 225-578-0334.

J.D.-M.P.A. Program

Admissions requirements for the J.D.-Master of Public Administration program include all requirements noted in the LSU Graduate School Catalog for the M.P.A. program plus those required for admission to the LSU Law Center.

J.D.-M.S. in Finance Program
