UC Davis and UC Hastings to Offer New Joint JD/MBA Program

Both degrees can be completed in four years, rather than the usual five

University of California at Davis' Graduate School of Management has partnered with the San Francisco-based University of California Hastings Colleges of the Law to offer a concurrent JD/MBA program.

The new JD/MBA can be completed in four years, rather than the five years it would take to complete both degrees separately. It's aimed at participants whose career paths are on the intersection between law and business.

For "some students – for example, students interested in starting or joining ventures in which they will be called upon both to give legal advice and to make business decisions – a concurrent degree program makes sense," says professor Morris Ratner, from UC Hastings. "For those students, our arrangement with UC Davis creates wonderful opportunities, and nicely supplements our existing JD/MBA programming options."

Indeed, UC Hastings already has similar partnerships  – with UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business and San Francisco's Presidio Graduate School – through which it offers joint JD/MBA options. Additionally, the school offers a master's-level LL.M. program in U.S. Legal Studies for foreign lawyers.

The new UC Hastings/UC Davis JD/MBA program will be available beginning this fall. For more information, please see the UC Hastings news release announcing the launch of the JD/MBA.
