JD_MBA - IntroUST and the South Texas College of Law Houston established a joint academic program that allows qualified students to earn a Doctor of Jurisprudence (JD) and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree in as few as four years. Under the plan, a student attends South Texas for the first two years, UST’s Cameron School of Business for the third year and South Texas for the fourth year.

Students must be admitted to both schools to participate in the program. The joint program is designed to train students to think more strategically and allow them to leverage the strengths of both fields.
