• business students in a classroom at Chapman University
Argyros College of Business and Economics


Offered in conjunction with the ABA accredited Fowler School of Law, the JD/MBA program allows students to earn both the JD and MBA degrees simultaneously. The program is completed full-time in four years, with a savings of one year of study. Students typically complete their first year in the Fowler School of Law and their second or third year in the Argyros College of Business and Economics. The final year requires enrollment in both schools. All core JD/MBA courses are taken as a cohort during the day in a consecutive, planned format.

Students obtain two highly marketable degrees with several advantages, including, but not limited to:

  • Intimate, personalized education from experienced law and business professors who work together collaboratively.
  • Career services and professional development resources in both schools.
  • Community relations and diverse alumni network.
  • STEM designation, offering international students the chance for an extension of two years post-completion of optional practical training (OPT) work in the United States following graduation.
