Students in a classroom at Columbia

The Best of Columbia Business School and Columbia Law School

Highly motivated students wishing to pursue a master’s level program in both business and law are invited to consider Columbia’s traditional four-year JD/MBA program or the accelerated three-year JD/MBA program.

Offered jointly by the Business School and Law School, the curriculum gives students the opportunity to complete the combined course of study a year earlier than traditional dual-degree programs. The program benefits from the involvement of the Richman Center, which sponsors the creation of new, accelerated courses to be jointly taught by business and law faculty members, as well as co-curricular programming to complement coursework.

Graduates of the program enter the job market with a solid base of legal and business knowledge, as well as specific expertise in areas of interest gained through electives. They also join a powerful, global alumni community from both the Business School and Law School.
