University of Wyoming Juris Doctor / MBA

Juris Doctor / MBA

The University of Wyoming JD / MBA dual degree program takes approximately four years to complete. Students spend three years on-campus engaged in their law studies and one year in the MBA program completing the core curriculum, the summer experiential project, and the experiential leadership program. The MBA Capstone course is completed in the Fall following the core curriculum completion. Students typically start the MBA portion of their degree in the 2nd or 3rd year.

Nine (9) credit hours of approved Law coursework will be shared as elective hours to the MBA Program. Students successfully completing this lock-step program will earn dual Juris Doctor and Masters of Business Administration degrees.

The applicant must notify both the College of Law and the MBA Program that he or she is applying for the dual degree program, and must be admitted by each College to participate. The College of Law admission requirements can be viewed HERE. To remain in the joint program, the student must comply with the minimum performance standards of both the College of Law and Business.

The GMAT or GRE is not required for JD/MBA applicants who demonstrate strong quantitative ability and preparedness for the mathematical rigors of the MBA program through their LSAT, prior coursework, professional experience, and/or certifications. This decision is to be made by the Professional Graduate Degree Programs Office on a case-by-case basis. Please reach out to for more information. 

Pre-Term Expectations

Students will be required to take a pre-term assessment to determine their proficiency in quantitatively-based subjects. Deficiencies in these subject areas will require completion of a short foundational course (approximately 20 hours of time required to complete each course). Addressing potential deficiencies prior to beginning the MBA core curriculum will ensure that all students are equipped for success in their subsequent studies.

Students will also participate in a one to two-week team building orientation prior to the start of their fall coursework.

"I hope to manage an energy company in Wyoming in the near future. With a B.A. in History and Government, an M.A. in American Government, and as a JD candidate, I wanted to pursue a program that allowed me to develop a richer quantitative and managerial background. My hope is to leverage the skills garnered in the MBA program, in conjunction with my other skill sets, so that I can enjoy a fruitful career in the energy industry."
