The School of Law has established combined-degree programs with the Henry W. Bloch School of Business and Public Administration. The program allows students to earn a juris doctor degree and a master of business administration or a master of public administration degree on an accelerated basis through cross-acceptance of some credit hours.

Applicants to the program must satisfy the admission requirements of each school and, if admitted into the program, may enroll in the first year of law school either before or after beginning M.B.A. or M.P.A. courses. Further information on admission and dual-degree requirements is contained on the School's Web site at http://law.umkc.edu/academics/degree-program/dual-degree-options/
