Courtney Jacobson

Class Year: 2023

JD/MBA Program Model: 3-Year

Hometown: San Rafael, California

Undergraduate Major: Business, Information Systems

Previous Professional Experience: Technology consultant with Deloitte Consulting

Extracurricular Involvement: Wharton PE/VC Club, Nonprofit Board Fellows, JD/MBA Student Association, Penn Law Office of Equity & Inclusion

Career Plans: My goal post-JD/MBA is to pivot into technology investing in private equity.

Why a JD/MBA? I pursued the degree because I wanted to have a better understanding of legal issues to apply in a business context. In particular, I have focused on taking classes in the law school that are relevant to the technology industry (Artificial Intelligence and the Law, Law of Autonomous Vehicles, Privacy, IP). In addition, I was really excited about being part of the JD/MBA community because I wanted to have a smaller cohort at Penn Law and Wharton that share my interests and career goals.
