The JD/MBA program at NYU is one of the nation's premiere law and business joint degree programs.
The JD/MBA Association welcomes candidates admitted to the program, those considering applying, and students who are just interested in law and business.
Our goals are to help those in the program cater it to their needs, while meeting all the requirements and getting the most out of both schools, and to present a wide variety of options for those seeking non-traditional career paths.
JD/MBA students come together and discuss job opportunities, business ideas and legal questions. Throughout the year the Association hosts career panels, dinners with alumni, symposiums, and lunches with professionals.
With the generous support of the Jacobson Program, the Association also facilitates an annual Spring Break trip for twelve students. In recent years, destinations have included Hong Kong, Cape Town, Lisbon, and Berlin. During these trips we meet with leading business and industry professionals, as well as legal experts. While all of the students learn a great deal about the economies and legal systems of these countries and make great networking connections, the trips also create bonds among the students. The Association is acutely aware of the importance of this cohesion and views it as an invaluable part of our four year education.
The Association has developed global relationships with market leading companies and their senior management who speak regularly with the membership. Recognized as one of the leading JD/MBA programs, we have established connections with many firms interested in hiring NYU JD/MBA's for internships or fulltime employment.
