Combined JD/MBA

Combined JD/MBA

Offered by the Faculty of Law and the Haskayne School of Business, the Juris Doctor (JD)/Master of Business Administration (MBA) student life businesscombines and integrates legal studies and graduate management education, offering tremendous opportunity for students interested in careers in corporate law specialties, management consulting, business or entrepreneurial endeavors.

Students admitted to the combined JD/MBA spend the first year completing the first year core in either the Faculty of Law or Hakayne's MBA program, and the second year completing core studies in the other program. Years three and four combine courses from both faculties in a unique manner that allows students to fulfill the requirements of both degrees in four years rather than five.

Students must apply and be admitted to both the Faculty of Law and Haskayne's MBA program and a separate application to each faculty must be submitted. If you have completed the first year of either the JD or MBA program, you can still apply for the combined JD/MBA program simply by meeting the normal application and admission requirements for the other faculty.

An overview of the program requirements for the Combined JD/MBA is available here.

New in 2013: Combined program applicants who have completed the LSAT with a score of 158 or greater are exempt from taking the GMAT test, a requirement for all other MBA program applicants.
