Why a JD/MBA? A JD/MBA dual-degree provides an opportunity to learn new skills while balancing the offerings of both the business world and the legal realm. Personally, since I have a business background, the JD/MBA program allows me to learn legal skills and to pursue a legal career while also improving on the skills and knowledge that I have obtained over the past few years at EY and during my undergraduate experience. In other words, I get the best of both worlds!
