Yale offers the opportunity to pursue an MBA in combination with a degree from Yale Law School, Yale School of Medicine, the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, Yale School of Architecture, or another of the University's world-class graduate programs. Yale's joint-degree programs are intended to prepare leaders who will bring a broad understanding and analytical thinking to whatever industry they work in.
In most Yale joint-degree programs, students spend one year enrolled full-time at Yale SOM, during which they complete the integrated MBA core curriculum; one or more years enrolled in the other program; and one year taking courses in both programs. (In the three-year Accelerated Integrated joint-degree program with Yale Law School, students spend two years at the Law School and one year at Yale SOM.)
The two degrees are usually completed in one year less than if they were taken sequentially. Both degrees are awarded at the end of the entire course of study.
During the full year that joint-degree students spend at Yale SOM, they participate fully in the Career Development Office's workshops, recruiting events, and training sessions, and the CDO's resources are available to them thereafter.
Joint-degree applicants must apply to and be admitted to both programs independently. In general, we recommend applying to both programs simultaneously in order to have a more integrated learning experience throughout both programs. In some cases, applicants may also apply to another graduate program during their first year at Yale SOM, or apply to Yale SOM during their first year in another graduate program (or during the second year of a four-year program). Please review the requirements for the specific program you are interested in, as they vary.
