William Howard Taft University recognizes that the job market for new law grads can be challenging. It now offers a "novel" solution: the Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Professional Practice Management. The $18,000, 36 credit, loan deferring program is described as follows:
The Master of Business Administration program with a concentration in Professional Practice Management is believed to be the first program of its kind – designed specifically for newly admitted attorneys who are facing employment challenges. (Enrollment is limited to qualified attorney applicants.)
The Program teaches the skills necessary to manage a successful solo or small legal practice. It combines a traditional M.B.A. curriculum with webinars and assignments directly related to the practice of law. For those that qualify, it is also the only University program approved for Title IV Federal Financial Aid, allowing some to borrow tuition and living expenses while also deferring repayment of existing federal student loans.
