Juris Doctor/MBA (JD/MBA)

Pepperdine's joint Juris Doctor / Master of Business Administration program addresses the growing need for additional training for lawyers and businesspersons alike to be competitive in today's global marketplace.  Offered at the School of Law and the Graziadio School of Business and Management, the program provides the unique opportunity for students to gain the knowledge required to address the increasingly complex legal problems that will arise as American business expands further into the world market.

The JD/MBA program allows students to compress a five-year program of study into four years.  Students may begin with the first year of study at either school. Classes for the program begin in the fall semester of each year.
