Dual Professional M.B.A. and M.S.L. in Corporate Compliance

Fordham University's Gabelli School of Business and School of Law offer a 52-credit Dual Professional M.B.A. and M.S.L. in Corporate Compliance​ degree, which provides new options for individuals who are interested in acquiring graduate-level credentials that combine a comprehensive business education from a nationally ranked business school with a specialized degree in corporate compliance from a nationally ranked law school.

The only one of its kind in the country, this dual-degree program affords working professionals the advantage of being able to complete their studies part time within as little as two years. The business courses may be taken through live, remote offerings during the evenings and on weekends, while many of the law courses that comprise the corporate compliance degree are offered at the University's Lincoln Center campus in Manhattan during the second year or third year of study, depending upon the student's enrollment levels.

Students apply to the this dual-degree program via a single Gabelli School of Business application from the beginning of their studies. The application requirements are the same as those for the Professional M.B.A. (there are no additional application requirements for the M.S.L. degree).

Students accepted into the program are accepted into both the Professional M.B.A. and the M.S.L. in Corporate Compliance degree programs.

The Dual Professional M.B.A. (Master of Business Administration) and M.S.L. (Master of Studies in Law) in Corporate Compliance requires completion of 52 credits, the same number as is required for the Professional M.B.A. alone. The coursework for the M.S.L. in Corporate Compliance (24 credits) takes the place of Professional M.B.A. concentration and elective coursework.

Students in the program will have two grade point averages: one for coursework completed at the Gabelli School of Business and one for coursework completed at the School of Law.
