The Chapman Joint Degree Program - MBA/JD

»Joint Degree Program – MBA and Juris Doctor

Offered in conjunction with the ABA accredited Fowler School of Law, the full-time joint JD/MBA program is the only such program in Orange County, California, that allows students to earn both the JD and MBA degrees simultaneously. For this full-time, four-year program graduate students spend their first year at the Folwler School of Law, their second year at the Argyros School of Business and Economics, and their final two years at both schools.

All core JD/MBA courses are taken as a cohort during the day in a consecutive, planned format.

Students interested in this joint degree program must submit separate applications for both the Law program and the Full-Time MBA program and meet the admission requirements of each school.
