  • Benedictine, John Marshall offer dual M.B.A./J.D. degree program. Partnership gives students competitive edge in business and law Mar 10, 2015 5:50 PM
    Individuals seeking a graduate degree to enhance their careers should consider Benedictine University’s new dual Master of Business (M.B.A.) and Juris Doctorate (J.D.) program with John Marshall Law School. After meeting admissions requirements at both schools, students can take classes at John Marshall toward a law degree and at Benedictine toward earning an M.B.A. “This program is fully integrated for students seeking degrees in both law and business to gain an advantage in today’s global business environment,” said Rick Holman, assistant professor and chair of Benedictine’s Graduate Business Administration program.”Benedictine is providing an opportunity for students who have an interest in the area of management whereby the combination of a law degree and an M.B.A. degree will give them an advantage in the corporate world.” As students continue to grow in business through market uncertainty, global competition, ethical challenges and constant change, the M.B.A. and J.D. dual degree will help Benedictine students develop quantitative, qualitative and legal competence as professionals who can assess business risks and strategic alternatives, Holman said. Students enrolling in the dual degree program can attend classes part-time or full-time. However, full-time law students must attend the first year of law school exclusively at John Marshall. After successfully completing the first year of law school, the student can combine law courses with Benedictine M.B.A. courses for the remainder of the program. Part-time students can attend classes simultaneously at Benedictine and John Marshall. Benedictine University, an accredited, nonprofit private Catholic institution which has been providing graduate business programs to adults for more than 50 years, believes that a quality education and an advanced degree should be both accessible and affordable. Though some other higher education institutions also offer dual M.B.A. and J.D. degree programs, Benedictine’s emphasis on values-based education is a distinct advantage as global corporations place greater emphasis on the correlation between ethical behavior and more sustainable and profitable results. Students within Benedictine’s M.B.A. program can customize their program to fit their needs. Courses are interactive, taught by faculty and instructors who are practicing professionals and provide real-world business planning and strategic management experiences. Both Benedictine and John Marshall accept applications on a rolling admissions basis throughout the year. Applicants seeking information about Benedictine’s M.B.A. program can visit ben.edu/mba or contact Admissions at admissions@ben.edu or (630) 829-6300.
