University of Chicago launches joint JD/MBA program

The University of Chicago’s Law School and Booth School of Business have launched an accelerated joint JD/MBA program, an exciting new course that will enable students to receive both degrees in just three years.

Describing this new opportunity Law School Dean, Thomas J Miles, explains, “The University of Chicago Law School and Chicago Booth are premier institutions in their fields, and an education combining both of them has no equal. The program’s students obtain an immersive, interactive, and comprehensive legal and business education, and the opportunity to complete this in three years is extraordinary and exciting.” Mr Miles continues, “This program empowers students for outstanding careers as leaders in either law or business – and mostly likely, for careers spanning both professions.”

The joint degree program combines the interdisciplinary strengths and distinct flexibility of two world-leading institutions to prepare students for careers at the intersection of business and law.  At the end of the three years the students will have earned a Juris Doctor from UChicago Law and a Masters of Business Administration from Booth on an expedited timeline. The existing four year program will still be available to students interested in more specialised legal and business education.

Chicago Booth Dean Madhav Rajan adds, “This is a fantastic combination from an intellectual standpoint. Through a curriculum spanning two preeminent institutions, students gain tools and problem-solving approaches to serve as key leaders and advisers in increasingly complex global environments. The new structure will make the JD/MBA more feasible for students, and so we think it will be very popular.”

The JD/MBA application deadline is Tuesday 7th January 2020 – for more information please email jdmba@uchicago.edu.
