The MBA/JD degree is designed to provide a deep understanding of both law and management for careers in government, law, or the private sector.
Three-Year Accelerated Integrated MBA-JD
In the three-year Accelerated Integrated (AI) MBA-JD, students spend the first year at Yale Law School; the second year primarily at Yale SOM, during which they take the integrated MBA curriculum as well as a Law School elective; and the third year at Yale Law School. The program is unique in that it allows for the completion of both degrees in six semesters without additional summer coursework.
In the four-year MBA-JD program, students spend two years at Yale Law School; one year at Yale SOM, during which they take the integrated MBA curriculum; and one year taking electives at both schools and elsewhere at Yale.
Students must be admitted to the Yale School of Management and Yale Law School independently. Students applying to the four-year MBA-JD program may apply for the both programs simultaneously, apply to Yale Law School during the first year at Yale SOM, or apply to Yale SOM during the first two years at Yale Law School.
Students applying to the three-year MBA-JD program may apply to both programs simultaneously or apply to Yale SOM during their first year at Yale Law School. Students already enrolled at Yale SOM may not apply for the three-year MBA-JD.
