An MBA degree has been a marketable credential for many years now which is why graduates from diverse fieldshave been pursuing the program to fast-track their career. Earlier trends saw engineering and commerce graduates making their way to B-schools, but now you have former armed forces personnel, students of humanities, chartered accountants, lawyers and many more working towards an MBA degree to achieve their professional goals and boost their career trajectory.
While every degree or certification is an accomplishment by itself, it also opens up wide opportunities for a particular specialisation. It’s quite a predictable path. But what if these credentials could be taken much further, beyond a regular MBA degree?
In today’s globalised economy, certain types of MBAs with specialisations in sought-after fields like law are particularly valuable. A graduate may aspire to hold a leadership role in business while already equipped with legal expertise, or who while interested in a career in the latter two, also wants a solid foundation in management.
It is to fulfil this very need that the NMIMS, School of Business Management developed a two-year MBA (Law) program which combines business intelligence with legal acumen. This truly one-of-its-kind course is presented in association with the Kirit P. Mehta School of Law.
The curriculum is interdisciplinary, market-driven and relevant to industry demands and advancements. It works to reinforce legal competencies in corporate operations like marketing, finance, among other departments. This is accomplished by some of India’s most sought-after faculty from academia, the legal world and the industry, all of whomdeliver the programme through lectures, presentations, discussions based on published papers, case studies and caselets, spread across six trimesters and an internship.
The NarseeMonjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) was established in 1981 to meet the growing demand for management education and in 2003, was declared a Deemed to be University.

Today, more global mergers and acquisitions are taking place and only a law degree or just an MBA may not prepare a manager to handle such complex scenarios. Conscientious corporate managers cannot make significant business decisions without an acute awareness of their possible legal implications. And on the other hand, lawyers who counsel corporate management must be aware of the business implications of their legal advice.
