NCSU and Campbell to offer dual law-MBA degree

N.C. State's business school and Campbell University's law school are teaming up to offer a dual law and MBA degree.

Starting this fall, students can earn the dual degree in four years. The universities are seeking to attract more students amid increasing competition from other schools with business and law degrees, including UNC Chapel Hill and Duke University.

"Students in the dual program will be well prepared for careers in business, finance, law, government, nonprofit organizations, teaching and research," said Steve Allen, associate dean for graduate programs at N.C. State's Poole College of Management.

The degree will cost $106,265 for in-state students. That will save a student more than $24,000 and a year of study, compared with getting both degrees separately.

N.C. State doesn't offer a law degree and Campbell has been expanding its law school, including by relocating the campus to downtown Raleigh in Sept. 2009.

"Law is a gateway degree, opening up many doors and careers," said Melissa Essary, dean of Campbell's law school. "If coupled with a great MBA degree, this gateway is widened considerably."

NCSU MBA program has new RTP home

An MBA program at N.C. State has a new home in Research Triangle Park.

Beginning this fall, the Jenkins MBA program will be offered at One Park Drive in , according to this blog post by Steve Allen, associate dean for graduate programs and research at NCSU's College of Management.

The program will have about 5,000 square feet of space on the first floor of a four-story building.

Perhaps most importantly to anyone taking a college course, there is parking nearby.
