Joint JD/MBA Degree Program

Available to Villanova Charles Widger School of Law L2 Students


In today’s ultra-competitive business world, many law firms and businesses covet students with both a JD and MBA degree. This joint-degree program with the Villanova Charles Widger School of Law allows students to complete both degrees in three years.

In order to be admitted to the joint program, you must first apply and be admitted to Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law. You then must apply separately to the Villanova MBA Flex Track program to begin the MBA program during the summer between your 1L and 2L years.

JD/MBA students may participate in employment/internship opportunities while enrolling in MBA courses during the evening.

Individuals interested in both law and business practices and the rules that deal with the intersection of business and law issues (e.g., mergers and acquisitions, contracts) may pursue benefit from the dual JD/MBA degree.

As a practical matter, having a dual degree just makes sense in today's interconnected business world. An MBA helps you to understand the intricacies of business and enhances the practice of law; a JD helps you to understand the laws governing business, putting intellectual clout behind decisions and ventures.
