Joint degree program across 2 schools?

Postby whuts4lunch » Sun Mar 20, 2011 7:24 pm

Is it possible to do a joint degree program across two different schools? Say you are hypothetically admitted to MIT's MBA program and Harvard Law. Could you do a 4 year JD/MBA, getting the JD from Harvard and MBA from MIT?

I believe that that is possible...but...why wouldn't you go to Harvard's MBA program over MIT's?

MIT's is known for quant. HBS is for management...though I would without hesitation choose HBS either way.

The specific schools named are just an example. Has anyone here done a joint/degree program across two different universities or know someone who has?

I actually think Harvard and MIT and Tufts all have joint programs that can cross over with each other that they mention on the website. Not 100% sure though.
