College of Business Administration Transfer forms should be submitted BEFORE School of Law Courses are taken
* Some students begin course work in the CBA before entering the School of Law. CBA course work taken prior to law studies will not be transferable to the School of Law. You should check with a College of Business Adviser to carefully plan your studies to get the maximum transfer benefit.
Law Courses the CBA will accept:
J.D./MBA students may transfer up to nine credits of School of Law courses into the MBA program. Up to nine credit hours may be in the area of concentration and must be selected from the courses listed below. Related courses not listed under concentrations may transfer with approval of the director of graduate programs in Business Administration.
Beginning in the Fall 2013 semester, all JD/MBA students should apply to the JD/MBA Interdisciplinary concentration. This concentration allows students to transfer nine law credits to the CBA. Students admitted prior to Fall 2013 are encouraged to apply for the Interdisciplinary concentration so as to maximize transfer. Other MBA concentrations have more specific course requirements and may only permit transfer of three or six credits from the School of Law.
Students may devise a personalized concentration consisting of any nine credits of the law courses listed for the concentrations. The choice of courses for the Interdisciplinary Concentration must be approved by the director prior to enrolling in the courses. Students must provide a career-related, programmatic rationale for the personalized concentration they have devised. Law students interested in pursuing MBA concentrations other than interdisciplinary should make an appointment with the Director of Graduate Programs by calling 330-972-7043.
For Students Admitted Prior to Fall 2013 Who do not Convert to the Interdisciplinary Concentration:
