||No two professional degrees are more coveted than the JD and the MBA. The University of Ottawa’s joint MBA-JD Program creatively combines these two powerful disciplines into a single four-year curriculum. The MBA-JD Program provides students with exposure to a unique community of business and legal leaders in both the public and private sectors. Through numerous externships available in the Faculty of Law and consulting projects offered by the Telfer School of Management, students can gain valuable work experience for academic credit during each of their four years of study. In addition to private sector placements, externships exist with the courts, federal tribunals, government agencies and departments, and non-governmental organizations. In recognition of the complementary skills required for success in both business and law, students can earn both their MBA and JD degrees in less than four years.
This innovative program is designed to educate a new generation of leaders—business executives who can manage independently the legal challenges of contemporary corporate life; lawyers who can address the business needs of their corporate clients; and entrepreneurs who will move seamlessly between business and law.
