University of Chicago Now Offering Three-Year JD / MBA

New joint program aimed at those who are interested in careers at the intersection of law and business

The University of Chicago Law School (UChicago) has teamed up with the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business to launch a new, accelerated JD / MBA program.

Students pursuing this new dual-degree option will be able to finish both degrees in three years. The school already offers a four-year version of the program, which will remain available for students who are looking for a more specialized education in either law or business.

According to a press release from the university, the three-year JD / MBA program will prepare graduates for careers at the intersection of business and law.

A joint application process is available for those interested in the program. Potential candidates should apply to the University of Chicago's joint MBA / JD program by January 7, 2020. Students in their first year of the University of Chicago's JD program can also apply, according to the school's website (although those who are in the second or third year of the JD will not be able to apply, given the structure of the program.)

For more information, please see this press release from the University of Chicago.
