Columbia Launches New JD/MBA Program

By - Dec 9, 10:43 AM Comments [0]

Columbia Law School and Columbia Business School are accepting the first class for their new three-year JD/MBA program. The accelerated program, which will launch in the fall of 2011, is intended to give "select students the opportunity to earn degrees from both schools in just three years."

Students will spend their first and third years taking courses at Columbia Law School and their second year at Columbia Business School. Elective courses will be available throughout the three years at both schools. Students will take a heavier load throughout the programs, but will be able to work during the summers between their first and second years and their second and third years in the program. There are optional late-August intensive courses through the law school that are designed as to not interfere with summer work.

There is already an existing four-year dual-degree JD/MBA program which will continue to run "for students interested in a broader course curriculum."

One benefit for three-year students is the opportunity to enter the workforce a year earlier than were they to complete the four-year program. Students in both the three- and four-year programs are considered full students at both the law school and business school and have access to all facilities and services at each, including career services, networking opportunities, and academic options.
