The main aim of the proposed JD/MBA program is to assist students to develop their capacity to manage effectively the complex interactions between the worlds of law and business in a wide range of private, public and government organisations.
The program covers all topic areas required for admission to legal practice in Australia and provides a broad grounding in all aspects of business management, enabling students to gain an understanding of the nature of general management and the role of the manager.
The JD degree consists of 24 subjects, of which 17 are compulsory, and essential for eligibility for admission to legal practice in Australia. The MBA consists of 18 subjects, of which 150 points are compulsory.
The JD/MBA combines the compulsory subjects from each degree with three electives drawn from the MBA and five electives from the JD; a total of 462.5 points which is equivalent to 37 subjects.
Classes at both Schools will generally be scheduled between 8am and 5:30pm on weekdays. Some MBA subjects may be taught on weekday evenings or weekends.
One review on “Master of Law (Juris Doctor) / MBA – University of Melbourne”
This is Australia’s leading university. I have many direct experiences with The University of Melbourne, and anyone giving it unfavourable reviews, is, in my opinion, suffering from sour grapes. It’s a difficult university to get into and to maintain a place, but it does not discriminate on the basis of age, nationality, disability – or any of the other biases it’s been accused of. If you get the marks to enter the university at whatever level, they will grant you a place. It’s not based on any other kind of elitism – that idea is just non-sensical and non-factual. The university does take into account the circumstances of disadvantaged students by lowering the entry ATAR score for undergraduate degrees.
