About the Program

The Francis J. & William Polk Carey JD/MBA Program at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School and the Wharton School immerses students in an accelerated course of study, preparing them for careers at the intersection of law and business. Students earn both JD and MBA degrees in three years, rather than the five years it would typically take to earn each degree separately.

Students spend their first year at the Law School and the following summer in Law and Wharton courses designed specifically for the Carey JD/MBA Program. The second and third years include a combination of Law and Wharton courses, along with the JD/MBA capstone course in the third year.
