Argument: JD/MBA takes less time/money than each degree separately
- Debate: Joint JD/MBA degree - pro argument.
"Pros and Cons of a JD/MBA." Veritas Prep. April 8, 2009: "Pros. The biggest advantage to the JD/MBA is that you can consolidate your time. Except in rare circumstances (such as the 1-year MBA program at Northwestern), the combination of a JD and an MBA achieved separately takes five years to complete (two for the MBA, three for the JD). By enrolling in both programs simultaneously, students can boil this process down to four or even three years of school. As discussed in the section on finances, every year saved is both one less year of tuition and one more year that you are out earning income, so this is no small consideration."
