Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a joint application?

Yes. Because the Carey JD/MBA Program is an integrated program, you will submit a single, joint application. You will submit the JD/MBA application, which consists of the Wharton MBA application and a Penn Law supplement. Members of admissions committees from both schools review the application. 

Can I apply during my 1L year at Penn Law?

Yes, you can apply to the Carey JD/MBA Program as a 1L at Penn Law. However, you may not apply as a 1L at another law school and transfer into the program. All applicants are required to apply during Rounds 1 or 2 per the Wharton MBA admissions timeline.

What is the typical course of study?

Students in the three-year JD/MBA Program must fulfill the degree requirements of both Penn Law and Wharton and complete the JD/MBA Capstone course. Learn more about the curriculum and degree requirements

Does the three-year JD/MBA replace the four-year JD/MBA program model at Penn?

No. A four-year program is still in place for students who want a broader business or law curriculum. 

Are career services offered for JD/MBA students?

Yes. Each school has an active career services office which JD/MBA students are encouraged to utilize to explore their career options. Activities hosted by both offices throughout the year include resume reviews, mock interviews, industry chats, networking functions, and more.
