Joint Degree Program in Law and Business

A long-standing tradition of excellence in business law is a distinguishing hallmark of legal education at Willamette University College of Law, which offers a Joint Degree Program for those students interested in a deeper immersion into the study of law, business and management. Willamette’s top JD/MBA Joint Degree Program enjoys accreditation for law from the American Bar Association and for business from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International.

Graduates of the Joint Degree Program receive both a JD from the College of Law and an MBA from Willamette's Atkinson Graduate School of Management. Through the Joint Degree Program, both degrees can be earned in four years rather than the usual five. More information about applying to the Joint Degree program may be found on our JD/MBA applicants page. Read the story of a recent JD/MBA student.
