JD/MBA students come to the University of Pennsylvania from a variety of backgrounds, including consulting, investment management, financial services, public interest, and government. Many students seek to return to their former industries with an enhanced skill set, while others seek to switch careers. JD/MBA students use the summer between the second and third years of the program to gain valuable internship experience in law, business, or in some cases, a combination of the two.
Students in the Carey JD/MBA Program have the unique opportunity to access the career services offices at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School and Wharton and are encouraged to work with both offices to explore their career interests. More information about each office can be found here:
