Georgia - Terry to Launch a Three-Year MBA/JD

School will continue to offer a four-year option for those seeking broader training in law

The University of Georgia's Terry College of Business and School of Law have announced a new JD/MBA dual-degree program that can be completed in three years.

The program will consist of one year of legal studies and one year of business studies; the third year will consist primarily of legal studies. 

The new three-year JD/MBA program shaves one year off of the school's traditional four-year JD/MBA. The school will continue to offer the four-year version for "students who seek broader training in the law," according to Suzanne E. Barbour, dean of the Graduate School.

With the new accelerated program, the University of Georgia joins a growing number of American universities offering three-year JD/MBA programs. The University of Pennsylvania, Cornell University, and Columbia University offer similar programs, among others.

For more information, please see the University of Georgia's press release announcing the launch of the three-year JD/MBA.
