I am torn between a JD or pursuing a Doctoral of Business. I would love to do both, not at the same time (that's just crazy!). Both degrees take a minimum of three years, most likely longer for me since I still have to work and can do a JD part-time or write a dissertation that takes some people years to finish.
The DBA program I am looking at has a focus on Supply Chain and Logistics. This is ideal for me and the easy choice since I work in logistics for the federal government.
A JD could be beneficial because I don't want to do logistics forever and would love to move over to the contract side of what we do because of all the stuff I see that could be fixed if someone knew both sides of how things work, (maybe I'm just a naive idealist in this aspect).
I would love to do both programs since I truly believe that I could make an impact knowing both sides of the business. I can only do the DBA online because the program is not offered anywhere near me here in Florida. There is at least Florida Coastal School of Law here, a T4 ABA juggernaut. I'm prepping for the LSAT in June.
I know that I probably answered my own question about which program to do first but would still love to hear the pros/cons of doing both degrees over time.
