JD/MBA: Admission Requirements
Separate Applications for University of Idaho and Boise State University
The concurrent JD / MBA program does not have a shared application, so you must apply separately to both the University of Idaho College of Law and to the Boise State University JD / MBA Program. Acceptance into one program does not guarantee that you will be accepted into the other. The College of Law also must approve your participation in the JD / MBA program.
Timing to Apply
We recommend that you are accepted and approved at the University of Idaho before applying to Boise State, although you may apply to both universities at the same time if your choice of Law School will depend upon acceptance into this program. Current first-year students in the College of Law should apply before the March 1st priority deadline toward the end of their first year of JD studies.
Find information on admission to the JD program on the University of Idaho College of Law website.
Boise State JD / MBA Admission
The Boise State admissions process is very similar to our Professional MBA program. Required application materials include official transcripts from all previous colleges and universities (these must be ordered and sent separately to Boise State, we can’t share copies previously sent to University of Idaho), a current resume, one personal statement (essay), and two recommendations from professional or academic sources. When applying at the Boise State online application site, create an account and click, “Start a New Application”, indicate “Graduate Application,” then select “Master of Business Administration (MBA) – Professional Program Concurrent with UI JD.”
Students accepted into the Boise State JD / MBA program will need to submit unofficial transcripts showing successful completion of the first year at the College of Law before being allowed to register for MBA courses.
