  Monday-Thursday: 9am – 5pm   Friday: 9am – 2pm

Concurrent program to earn an MBA and a JD is offered through SDSU’s partnership with California Western School of Law (CWSL).

This concurrent degree program is designed for students interested in working in fields where law and business converge. Students are expected to apply first to the law program and then apply to the SDSU MBA program during their first year of law school.

The MBA classes will be taken at SDSU’s Fowler College of Business and the 77 JD units will be taken at CWSL. Each institution grants credit for up to 12 units taken at the other institution thus reducing the total amount of units needed to complete both degrees. Students can expect to complete the joint MBA/JD in four years. The courses in year one will be taken at CWSL. Courses in year two at SDSU.
