Why a JD/MBA? I decided to pursue a JD/MBA at Penn for a number of reasons. First, armed with a formal education in finance and accounting, I will have the hard skills necessary to make tangible contributions at the executive table that transcend the sole legal topics. In addition, with an MBA I will have developed real leadership and teamwork skills through the myriad of club opportunities, Wharton leadership ventures, etc. My wife and I have fallen in love with the city of Philadelphia, and I am so grateful to be a part of this program for the next two years!
