Degree Partnerships with Davenport University: JD/MBA

Cooley Law School and Davenport University Announce Dual Degree Juris Doctor/MBA Partnership Program

On Wednesday, June 20, Cooley Law School President Don LeDuc was joined by Davenport University President Dr. Richard Pappas and other university leadership for a formal agreement signing. The dual degree partnership program will begin in September 2012 and is offered at the Lansing campuses of each institution.

Students interested in the JD/MBA program must meet the established admission criteria at each school. Cooley students may begin taking classes in Davenport's MBA program after successfully completing at least one year of Cooley courses. Davenport students may begin in Cooley's JD program after successfully completing the initial one year of the MBA course work at Davenport University. A maximum of nine credit hours may be accepted for transfer from Cooley to Davenport and a maximum of six credit hours may be accepted for transfer from Davenport to Cooley.

Eligible students in one program will be able to incorporate course work from the other degree program; however, each student must meet the degree requirements of the respective institution before receiving each degree.
