Texas Tech University

Juris Doctor (JD) / MBA

In partnership with the Texas Tech University School of Law, the J.D./MBA program is designed for highly motivated students interested in the intersection of law and business. This program provides a solid foundation for you to advance your career whether you hope to start your own practice or seek to master the legal and ethical side of managing a business.

program format


Through this program, you can earn both degrees in three to four years. This is made possible by allowing 12 credit hours of approved law courses to transfer as elective credit toward your MBA and vice versa. Rawls College graduate coursework is not computed in a student's Texas Tech Law School GPA or class ranking. You will work with advisors from both colleges to ensure all graduation requirements are met for each program.



If you are interested in pursuing dual degrees, you must file your intent no later than your second semester in Law School. You must meet the admission requirements for both Rawls College and the Law School. The LSAT will be accepted in lieu of the GRE or GMAT exam.

To request that a copy of your LSAC CAS report (LSAT, transcripts) be sent to the Texas Tech Graduate School, please contact the Law School.

Deadline: May 1
International students are encouraged to apply at least six months in advance when possible.
