Regarding the joint MBA/JD, I would say that a bar qualifying JD is (obviously) more exciting. Having said that I think there still are regulations regarding the number of hours of study that must be completed on an annual basis as well as (I think) maximum and minimum amounts of time to completion, so I'm not sure how realistic such a joint program would be. I can't imagine that there are nearly as many regulatory problems with a joint MBA/Executive JD. I think it would be a fantastic program, and there might even be a niche there. I'm pretty sure no one else is doing it. I have no idea what the demand is (from a student's perspective) for non bar JDs. I suppose you probably already have the answer to that. Program design is relatively easy. I think IACBE is valuable and realistic. Pretty much everything I know about the relative value of business accreditation I learned from degreeinfo, so I am probably representative of the average applicant. If I was looking for an MBA program (I'm not) I would think it was great that the school had additional accreditation. It appears to be a sign of commitment and quality. It also doesn't preclude going for a different accreditation in the future. Congrulations and best of luck.
