The JD/MBA Program is a four-year combined degree offered by the Faculty of Law and the Rotman School of Management. At the completion of the four-year integrated program, the successful student is awarded both the Juris Doctor and the Master of Business Administration degrees, which, if taken separately, would require five years of study.
Students learn in small, intimate classes where they are immersed in a demanding, innovative curriculum taught by the most distinguished business school and law school faculty in the country. In addition to a powerful combination of top-flight academic training and hands-on experience, our students undergo extensive practical training to ensure polished presentations, strong advocacy, interpersonal, and other professional skills.
Students in the JD/MBA program come from a wide variety of academic backgrounds, including arts and humanities, science, engineering and business administration. What JD/MBA students do have in common are determination, academic excellence and a desire to receive a broad education that will lead to rewarding future career opportunities.
Graduates of the JD/MBA program find that they have myriad career opportunities before them, thanks in part to the additional skill sets acquired from working toward two professional designations. Recruiters tend to place a high value on the JD/MBA degree when they search for qualified candidates for summer and full-time positions. Students can sample multiple career paths over their three summers in the program and those who have successfully completed the program have pursued rewarding careers in Canada, the U.S. and abroad, in fields such as corporate law, investment banking, consulting, venture capital, and in-house corporate work, to name but a few.
