Accelerated Master of Business Administration (A.M.B.A.) / J.D.


Return to Programs by College/School Return to: Programs by College/School

The Darla Moore School of Business in cooperation with the University of South Carolina School of Law offers a combined degree program that permits a student to obtain the J.D. and Accelerated Master of Business Administration (A.M.B.A.) degrees in approximately three and one-half years. Through the combined program, the total course load may be reduced from that required if the two degrees were earned separately since 9 hours of electives toward the J.D. may be earned in the business administration program, and vice versa.

Students in the AMBA/JD program must take 9 credit hours of electives in the Moore School. An additional 9 credit hours in the School of Law will be used to satisfy the 18 elective credit hours required for the AMBA degree. All of these elective courses must be included in the AMBA program of study. Students must supply the AMBA office with a letter from the law school registrar stating the Law School’s approval of participation in the dual degree.

Prior to obtaining admission to the combined degree program, a student must be admitted to both the School of Law and the Moore School of Business.
