Innovative program offers law students business acumen: information session July 12
The School of Law partnered with Duquesne's Palumbo-Donahue School of Business to offer our law students a unique business perspective to complement their law careers. This innovative "Business Essentials for Lawyers Micro-Credential" program will begin in the Fall 2021 semester. The program is currently open for the fall, and an informational session about it will take place virtually on Monday, July 12, at noon.
Seth Oranburg, program director and associate professor of law, Tara Willke, associate dean for academic affairs and associate professor of law, and Chris Rouhier, director of graduate admission for the School of Business, will present the event and will answer questions about the program.
The presentation on July 12 is open to Duquesne law students who have completed their first year of law school. All currently enrolled students who are in good standing are eligible to enroll in the micro-credential after completing the first one-third of their JD coursework. The required courses are listed here.
The courses in this program may be stacked with the joint J.D.-M.B.A. degree. Those who are enrolled in the micro-credential program and who wish to work toward an M.B.A. degree will receive six credits toward that professional degree.
Registration for the session is required and can be done here. Once registered, a link to attend the event will be emailed. We hope to see you there to learn more about developing business acumen and expanding your skillset and resume.
