JD/MS in Engineering Management
From patent law to in-house counsel, or helping to launch a medical or tech startup, pairing your JD with a Master of Science in Engineering Management is a powerful combination. Our interdisciplinary program integrates engineering and business courses that will prepare you to help your organization make the most effective use of its resources: people, equipment, capital, materials, information, and energy. Pursuing both degrees together will save you time and more than $10,000 in tuition. As a full-time student, you can complete both degrees in three years. Part-time students will finish in four years.
Current Western New England University JD candidates can apply for admission for the JD/MS in Engineering Management Dual Degree Program upon completing at least one semester of full-time study or three semesters of part-time study in the JD program. Applications are processed on a rolling basis. Applicants will be evaluated based on their performance to date in the JD program, as well as their undergraduate academic record. A baccalaureate degree in engineering or related discipline is required for admission.
Dual degree candidates will be billed in four installments once they register for their first graduate business course. A charge will be posted for a total of four semesters. The installments will be based on current graduate tuition rates and be adjusted annually. As a result of the cross-credits shared by both degree programs, dual degree candidates will save over $10,000 in tuition. Candidates completing graduate business courses after the four installments are paid will not be charged for any remaining graduate business courses.
