Accelerated program helps prepare students for careers combining law and business

The University of Georgia's Terry College of Business and School of Law have announced the launch of a three-year MBA/JD program.
 
The new program allows students to complete both degrees in one year less than the traditional four-year offering. The school will continue to offer the four-year MBA/JD program for students who would like a broader understanding of legal issues.
 
“While UGA will continue to offer the four-year program for students who seek broader training in the law, the three-year JD/MBA is ideally suited to meet the needs of the highly differentiated student whose career aspiration is corporate law,” according to Suzanne E. Barbour, dean of the Graduate School.
 
According to the school, there has been an increase of the number of graduates who secure employment in the business sector. Since 2008, the percent of law school graduates in business-related employment has approximately doubled, according to the school.
