Degree Partnerships with Oakland University: JD/MBA | JD/MPA

Admission Requirements

Prospective students must apply to Cooley law School and Oakland University (OU) independently and be admitted according to each school's admission criteria. Prospective students should review all application requirements on the websites for Cooley and oakland.edu/mba or oakland.edu/mpa for Oakland University.

Overview

The partnerships between Oakland University and Cooley recognize there is a close association between law, business, and government. The dual degree programs provide the student the ability to get into the marketplace faster than if each degree was completed separately.

Cooley supplies students with the substantive knowledge, legal skills, and ethics needed for bar examinations. Students acquire an ethical framework that will guide them throughout their professional career. The curriculum prepares students for a successful entrance into the practice of law and places students in a position to excel in further graduate studies.
