Why a JD/MBA?: I have always valued interdisciplinary learning during academic and professional experiences. I decided to pursue a JD/MBA because I knew that the combination of both degrees would prove a valuable skillset to help me more deeply understand issues that relate to business and the law. The JD/MBA community also brings together a close-knit group of students with different perspectives and backgrounds, while simultaneously providing access to the broader communities at both the law and business schools. The multidisciplinary nature of the program has changed my perspective on so many issues, and I am confident that it will prove invaluable in my career.
