Edward B. Rock, the Saul A. Fox Distinguished Professor of Business Law and Co-Director of the Institute for Law & Economics, discusses the accelerated three-year JD/MBA program that he helped create.
1.Why should I pursue an accelerated three-year JD/MBA? (2:34)
This program is the future of legal education.
2.What about the economy? Is the timing right to do this? (1:39)
What could be a better combination of education and credentials going forward in an uncertain economic environment?
3.Why at Penn Law? (3:20)
The Wharton School is two blocks away. We're able to offer a fully integrated program.
4.How is the program structured? (4:04)
You come in with your JD class. You come in with your MBA class. You graduate with both classes. And you go on to do great things.
5.What would I give up in an accelerated program? (0:59)
Breadth. But for students who are focused, who come in knowing that this is what they want to do, there's no better program.
6.Can I still do a more traditional four-year JD/MBA? (1:04)
Yes. From an employer's perspective, both sets of graduates will be incredibly attractive candidates to hire.
