Chad Sloat over at Help me become a sports agent… (yes, the 2nd Sports Agent blog on the internet that we totally support) made a post about the value of completing a dual JD/MBA program. I believe that he makes a very good point, and receiving a dual degree is something that I have been considering for a long time.
Many Law Schools have excellent JD dual degree programs (the other degree does not have to be an MBA) where you can get 2 degrees in around one extra year of work. The length of time required varies by school and by 2nd degree chosen. I feel that an MBA in addition to a JD would be even more valuable than only a JD, which is definitely an advantage to only having a Bachelors.
On December 22nd, I revealed my spreadsheet that lists Self-Identified Sports Law Professors @ The Top 50 Law Schools.Â If you are looking to get a JD/MBA, you want to pick a school that also has a good Business school.Â Chad Sloat provides a spreadsheet that lists the Top 50 Law Schools next to the Top 50 MBA Programs that can be looked at concurrently with the spreadsheet that I recently made concerning Sports Law Professors.Â Enjoy!

p.s. – I have highlighted a few specialized Sports Business programs already at select schools.Â Southern California, Oregon, and Penn have been discussed so far in the Sports Business category.Â Go take a look.
