  • Yale Law School faculty approved a pilot accelerated J.D./M.B.A. joint-degree program offered at the Law School and School of Management in late October, following nearly a year of program review.

    The joint-degree program that Yale formally approved on Oct. 21 with minimal changes to its original structure has been offered by the University since fall 2009. The program allows students to graduate with a business degree and a law degree in six semesters, has no summer coursework requirement, and is among the shortest J.D./M.B.A. tracks in the nation.
