Online MJ in Business Law & Compliance

The Masters of Jurisprudence (MJ) in Business Law & Compliance is a two-year, part-time online degree program designed specifically for business professionals who want to develop expertise in compliance and business legal principles, with a focus on practical skills needed to develop and maintain regulatory compliance programs. The MJ degree is a valuable asset for professionals who seek a greater understanding of the law but do not plan to practice law.

MJ candidates will enjoy a curriculum focused on current real world business and legal issues; they will learn key business law and compliance concepts and develop the skills they need to explore and create proactive solutions within a business and regulatory context. Our curriculum helps students gain technical expertise in the laws and regulations that affect business on a day-to-day basis. The degree is applicable in almost any public or private sector industry, as well as in the not-for-profit world.

Our mission is to educate diverse, talented students to contribute a deeper understanding of business law and compliance in the rapidly changing business world, while emphasizing the importance of regulatory compliance and ethical business conduct. Whether you are seeking to expand your employment opportunities or to just gain a better understanding of the legal aspects of business and compliance, this program will enable you to enhance your resume with a preferred qualification.

Many MJ students choose to focus their studies on compliance coursework and can choose to pursue a certificate in compliance studies, which highlights their skills in compliance and qualifies them to sit for compliance industry examinations.
