Penn Law and Wharton Create 3-year JD/MBA Degree

PHILADELPHIA (Sept. 10, 2008) - Two of the nation’s top law and business schools - the Wharton School and the Law School at the University of Pennsylvania - are launching an accelerated three-year program leading to both the JD and MBA degrees.

“As the world becomes more complex, leaders must be able to integrate financial, legal, political and cultural issues like never before,” said Michael A. Fitts, dean of Penn Law School. “From corporate scandals and globalization to crises in the housing and credit markets, there is an obvious need for people with advanced training in the law to be highly skilled in business, and there is no better place anywhere to study business and finance than the Wharton School.

“This will become the leading way to educate tomorrow’s leaders on Wall Street,” he added.
