Because each school within Rutgers recognizes up to 12 credits offered by the other, students are able to earn both a JD and an MBA in just four years -- one year less than it would take to earn them individually. Generally, dual degree candidates take the required JD curriculum in the first academic year and the full-time MBA core curriculum in the second academic year. During the third and fourth academic year, candidates take a combination of both disciplines.

Students are required to meet the admissions requirements of both schools in order to be eligible for the program. Prospective applicants are encouraged to apply simultaneously and independently to both schools. Typically, the student will file an application with the School of Law, take the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT), and present the report of undergraduate work provided by the Law School Data Assembly Service. Applicants will submit the separate, self-managed application to Rutgers Business School.

USA requirements for international students

Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.


* Application fee (non-refundable) of $65.00 * GRE or GMAT Test Results * Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), IELTS, or Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic) * You must submit the TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE Academic test if your native language is not English.
