Business School Announces Accelerated Joint MBA/JD Program

The University of Chicago Booth School of Business is rolling out a fully integrated, accelerated three-year joint MBA/J.D. program.

The new accelerated program will be offered as an option to the school’s traditional four-year joint program.

“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,” Law School Dean Thomas J. Miles says in a press release. “This program empowers students for outstanding careers as leaders in either law or business – and mostly likely, for careers spanning both professions.”


The new accelerated program will offer students a foundation in legal and business skills with the flexibility to tailor coursework towards their career goals.

“Throughout all three years, students will benefit from collaborative program management, leveraging the resources of both schools to provide students with comprehensive academic advising, access to student organizations and activities, top-tier career services support and extensive alumni networks,” according to the university.

Under the accelerated program, students will spend their first and third years at the law school and their second year at Booth.

“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,” Chicago Booth Dean Madhav Rajan says in a press release. “The new structure will make the JD/MBA more feasible for students, and so we think it will be very popular.”
