Applicants to the Francis J. & Wm. Polk Carey JD/MBA Program should submit the Carey JD/MBA Program application through Wharton’s application system, which includes the elements of the full-time MBA application plus a Penn Law supplement. Application instructions are available here and within the application. Applicants to the Carey JD/MBA Program must apply during Round 1 or Round 2 per the Wharton MBA application timeline. Applicants to the program will receive their response according to Wharton’s decision release timeline

Given the unique nature of the program, applicants are encouraged to apply prior to matriculation in the Law School. However, since the first year of the three-year JD/MBA program takes place at Penn Law, Penn Law students also have the option of applying during their 1L year, during Round 1 or Round 2 per the Wharton MBA application timeline.

Applicants are bound to attend the three-year Carey JD/MBA Program if admitted. Because the three-year Carey JD/MBA Program is an integrated program, students may not, after time of admission, decide to enroll in one school and not the other (e.g., students may not choose to only enroll at Penn Law and pursue an MBA elsewhere or vice versa). The admission decision is binding to the three-year Carey JD/MBA Program at the University of Pennsylvania.
