Concurrent Degree Programs

The Haas School offers concurrent degree programs in areas of special interest to business professionals. Earning a dual degree offers Berkeley MBA graduates new levels of flexibility and proficiency for unique career opportunities both in the United States and abroad.

JD/MBA Program

The JD/MBA program provides you with a solid foundation in both law and management. Upon completion of this four-year program, you earn:

  • A Berkeley MBA degree
  • A JD degree through either UC Berkeley's School of Law or UC Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco

Typically, you spend your first two years in law school and your third year in business school. During your fourth year, you take elective courses in both schools.

In the 2.5-year MBA/MPH program, you earn both the MBA and Masters of Public Health degrees. You take courses in both schools, as well as complete a three-month internship in a health organization. The program prepares you for senior positions in health-related industries, including:

  • Managed care and insurance
