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 outdoor leadership experience.  The MBA Capstone course will be 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 transferred 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 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. This final decision is to be made by the MBA Program Office on a case-by-case basis. 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.

"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."

- Greyson Buckingham, JD/MBA candidate
