Master of Business Administration (MBA) ​ & Juris Doctor (JD)
The Davis College of Business at Jacksonville University and Florida Coastal School (FCSL) of Law have created a joint degree program through which qualified students may pursue a Juris Doctor (JD) and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from both schools simultaneously. Graduates with a joint JD / MBA degree can develop the skills needed to pursue careers in the business and legal professions, especially where those areas overlap such as investment and commercial banking, management consulting, government regulation, and business policy analysis.

We're extremely pleased to launch this program since it allows a very sophisticated and attractive combination of business and legal education. FSCL has an exceptional reputation for producing legal professionals that are at the top of their field.
