UW College of Law provides a joint degree in Law and Masters of Business Administration

The on-campus Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program features an innovative curriculum provided by a well-rounded and distinguished group of faculty members, along with on-site experiential learning in business environments. This combination was designed to provide our students with the skills necessary for career exploration and job placement. The joint degree program is for those looking to launch their career or round out their education with business experience. The JD/MBA concentrates on honing decision-making techniques on real business problems, developing managerial skills for successful leadership and improving interpersonal skills.


Program Details:

The University of Wyoming JD / MBA degree program will take approximately four years to complete.  Students spend their first, third, and fourth years on-campus engaged in law studies.  In their second year, students will be enrolled full-time in the MBA Program, taking core Fall and Spring business courses followed by participation in an MBA Summer Project. The MBA Capstone course will be completed during the student’s third year for a total of 38 MBA Program credits.  Nine (9) credit hours of approved Law coursework will be transferred as elective hours to the MBA Program for a total of 47 credit hours.  Additionally, nine (9) credits of approved MBA coursework will be applied to the Juris Doctor degree. Students successfully completing this lock-step program will earn dual Juris Doctor and Masters of Business Administration degrees.

The applicant must notify both Colleges that he or she is applying for the joint JD/MBA program, and must be admitted by each College to participate.  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 demonstrating strong quantitative ability and preparedness for the mathematical rigors of the MBA program through their LSAT, prior coursework, professional experience, and/or certifications. If an applicant is uncertain their background demonstrates the level of quantitative ability required to be successful in the MBA program, they may take the GMAT or GRE by the application deadline.

It is recommended for law students to be admitted to the MBA portion of the joint degree within the first semester of their first year.
