The Law School is pleased to announce the creation of a new, Accelerated Integrated JD-MBA Program with the School of Management, which will enable students to earn both degrees in three years.
There will be an informational meeting about the program on Tuesday, March 3 at 12:10 in the Alumni Reading Room. Lunch will be provided. Please rsvp to email@example.com if you plan to attend. Further information will be provided at the meeting and posted on the Inside site on March 3.
Accelerated Integrated JD?MBA at Yale Law School and the Yale School of Management
In order to prepare students for the increasingly complex intersection of business and law, the Yale Law School and the Yale School of Management are offering a new combined three-year program in law and business. This program is unique because it offers both the JD and MBA degrees in three academic years (six semesters) without the need for summer classes.
The program is designed primarily for students interested in business law but will be useful in a variety of settings involving business and management. Students will master analytical and quantitative skills necessary to solve complex legal and business challenges, which will be of value for a business law-related practice (not only transactional law but also corporate litigation and government regulatory work), as well as more broadly for careers as entrepreneurs and managers in business and non-profit organizations.
The program allows students to be fully immersed in the required curriculum and community life at each school. Students in the Accelerated Integrated JD?MBA program will graduate with their entering class at both the Law School and SOM. During the two summers students are free to gain valuable experience in law or business related positions.
Please note: YLS and SOM will continue to offer the existing four-year joint degree program as an option.
Curriculum and Schedule
Students can apply to enter the Accelerated Integrated JD?MBA program during their first year of Law School. Once accepted to the program, the second year will be spent at SOM and the third year at the Law School. A subset of the core first-term classes at SOM will be multiple-titled at YLS, and we anticipate that there will be a special section of the Negotiations core course for students enrolled in the program. In the second term at SOM, students in the program will take one law school course of their choosing, in addition to their SOM courses, which will facilitate their maintaining a connection to the Law School during that year. A YLS Faculty Adviser will be appointed to counsel students in the program regarding their Law School course of study in the third year.

Students must complete the required courses for each program. (A complete description of required courses can be found on the YLS and SOM websites).
A separate tuition will be charged in years 2 and 3 in the program. Students will receive financial aid equivalent to what they would receive in the individual degree programs. Need-based loans taken during the semesters in which students paid tuition to SOM are eligible for SOM?s Loan Forgiveness Support. Need-based loans taken during the semesters in which students paid tuition to the Law School are eligible for COAP.
Information about application requirements will be provided at the meeting on March 3.
