Offered with the Haskayne School of Business, the JD/MBA combines legal studies and graduate management education. The program offers tremendous opportunities for students interested in careers in corporate law specialties, management consulting, business or entrepreneurial endeavours.
You will spend your first year completing the first year core in either the Faculty of Law or the MBA program, and the second year completing core studies in the other. Years three and four combine courses in both faculties which allows you to fulfill the requirements of both degrees in four years rather than five.
You must apply and be admitted to both the Faculty of Law and the MBA program, and a separate application to each faculty must be submitted. You may apply for the program after completing your first year in either program, simply by meeting the normal application and admission requirements for the other faculty.
Combined program applicants who have completed the LSAT with a score of 158 or higher are exempt from taking the GMAT.
