JD/MBA Joint Degree Program

UST 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. 

Degree Requirements

Students are required to complete 24 credit hours as part of this joint program. Proficiency courses are available for students with non-business degrees. These courses are designed to ease the transition to business core classes for students who do not hold undergraduate business degrees.
