Law and business are more interconnected than ever before. As we move forward, more business lawyers, to better serve their clients well, will need to understand corporate finance, management, marketing, or real estate. At the same time, more and more corporations have turned to lawyers to serve as CEOs or in other business roles, especially when the firms operate in highly regulated markets.
The University of Pennsylvania Law School and The Wharton School have developed an accelerated, intensive 3-year JD/MBA program to address the needs of students interested in business & law.
The program is an integrated, accelerated course of study whereby students earn JD & MBA degrees in 3 years rather than the 5 years it would typically take to earn each degree separately. The degree prepares students for careers in corporate law; public governance; investment banking; private equity; entrepreneurship; hedge funds; and much more.
