An exclusive program for exceptional students

Our MBA-JD program is reserved for ambitious students with a demonstrated record of success. You are admitted to the joint program according to the admission requirements of each faculty.


Year 1 Complete first-year JD
Year 2 Complete full MBA program (consisting of 48 rather than 54 units) over one academic year, plus the summer
40.5 units consist of core courses and 7.5 units of business-related electives
Year 3 Complete second-year JD with the additional requirement of successfully completing a minimum of 34 units
Year 4 Complete 17 remaining units in the JD program by December

Note: Year 3 admission into the combined MBA program is exceptional. To be admissible to the joint program, you cannot receive your JD diploma until you have completed the MBA component. This means that receiving your JD diploma before completing the MBA program makes you inadmissible to the combined MBA-JD program.

Note: The MBA component is also available in French but over a period of two years.
