University of Chicago Launches a Joint MBA / JD Program

Both degrees can be finished in just three years

The University of Chicago's Booth School of Business and Law School have announced plans to launch a new, accelerated dual-degree MBA / JD program.

Students pursuing this new accelerated option can finish both degrees in three years. The existing, non-accelerated program, which can be completed in four years, will remain available. The four-year option would appeal to students seeking a more specialized education.

The joint MBA/JD program will prepare graduates for careers at the intersection of business and law.

A joint application process is available. Potential candidates should apply to the University of Chicago's joint MBA / JD program by January 7, 2020. Students in their first year of the University of Chicago's JD program can also apply, according to the school's website.

For more information, please see this press release from the University of Chicago.
