  • Moore School of Business

The Moore School of Business in cooperation with the University of South Carolina School of Law offers a combined degree program that permits a student to obtain the J.D. and International Master of Business Administration (I.M.B.A.) degrees in approximately four years. Through the combined program, the total course load may be reduced from that required if the two degrees were earned separately since 9 hours of electives toward the J.D. may be earned in the business administration program.

Students in the I.M.B.A/J.D. program must take 9 credit hours of electives in the Moore School. An additional 12 credit hours in the School of Law will be used to satisfy the 21 elective credit hours required for the I.M.B.A. degree. All of these elective courses must be included in the I.M.B.A. program of study. Upon approval of the graduate director and dean of The Graduate School, business-related law school electives may be substituted for Moore School electives. Such substitution is permissible only if the business-related electives are not counting toward the J.D. degree. Students must supply the I.M.B.A. office with a letter from the law school registrar stating that any substitute business-related law school electives are not also being used to satisfy the J.D. degree.

Prior to obtaining admission to the combined degree program, a student must be admitted to both the School of Law and the Moore School of Business.
