Concurrent JD and MBA Program
The concurrent Juris Doctorate (JD) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) program, offered in conjunction with the University of Idaho College of Law, allows students to earn both the JD and MBA degrees in three years rather than the usual four to five.
Students in the concurrent program complete the first year of their JD at the University of Idaho in Boise. Then, in years 2 and 3, students take evening MBA courses, in-person, at Boise State while also completing Law courses (daytime) at the University of Idaho College of Law Boise location.

A student must satisfy the requirements of both the JD and MBA programs, as well as the requirements of the Concurrent JD and MBA Program. Students are subject to all policies and procedures outlined in Boise State University’s Graduate Catalog as well as the UI College of Law’s Student Handbook, the College of Law Honor Code and the University of Idaho’s Catalog.
This three year JD / MBA requires 133 total credits: 43 MBA credits and 90 Law credits.
