JD/MS in Organizational Leadership
Whether you aspire to become a partner, go solo, work as in-house counsel, or help form a startup, organizational and leadership skills are essential to your future success. The ability to lead change, make decisions, and manage others gained from our AACSB International- accredited MS in Organizational Leadership will double the impact of your law degree. Pursuing both degrees together will save you time and more than $11,000 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 Organizational Leadership 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. The LSAT will be considered in lieu of the GMAT.
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 $11,000 in tuition. Candidates completing graduate business courses after the four installments are paid will not be charged for any remaining graduate business courses.
