JD/MBA Society


The JD/MBA Society* seeks to facilitate, improve and strengthen the experience, profile, and alumni network of the dual JD/MBA program of the Darden Graduate School of Business and the University of Virginia School of Law. We seek to do this through building connections among JD/MBA students and between JD/MBA students and faculty, businesses, law firms and the Charlottesville community.   


All students enrolled in the JD/MBA program at the University of Virginia are automatically members of the JD/MBA Society.  We also welcome students who have previously obtained either their JD or MBA at any university and who are now enrolled at either Darden or the University of Virginia School of Law to obtain the second degree, or those who are currently enrolled at Darden or the Law School and are applying to the dual degree program.  Other individuals not pursuing both degrees but who are interested in issues at the intersection of law and business are encouraged to contact us to learn more about our community events and our relationships with other organizations on grounds.
