Being from a family who for the past 25 years has been in the hospitality business, Tejal Desai made the natural decision to enroll in Penn State University's joint J.D./MBA program. After he graduates in 2007, Mr. Desai plans to work in the family business.

''An understanding of legal and business concepts is crucial in my family's line of business,'' explained Mr. Desai. ''Our company develops and manages hotels, so we deal with a number of legal issues that arise from real estate transactions, construction, employment, financing, etc.''

The four-year, accredited J.D./MBA program Mr. Desai is enrolled in is offered through Penn State-Dickinson School of Law (DSL) in conjunction with Penn State's Smeal College of Business. Students enrolled in the program must complete 76 credits at DSL. Twelve credits from Smeal may be transferred toward the J.D., and 12 credits are taken from the DSL and transferred to Smeal, both subject to each school's approval.

Because the law school and business school are about 82 miles apart, students complete their first two years at the law school and then go to the business school for the final two. Mr. Desai is finishing up his second year of law school this spring and will begin at Smeal in the fall. Mr. Desai said he considered the joint program because he could get both degrees in a shorter span of time.
