Vermont Law School is working with University of Vermont to offer an accelerated MBA and J.D. joint degree. The program will allow students to graduate with both degrees in three years instead of the normal five. The program is designed to train future leaders in both business and law to create profitable and sustainable business opportunities and social enterprises. “I am thrilled and delighted that Vermont Law School faculty and students will soon be an important part of the Sustainable Entrepreneurship MBA,” said Sanjay Sharma, dean of the School of Business Administration. “Vermont Law School is the top-ranked environmental law program in the nation and will make an important contribution to our curriculum.” Under the collaboration, Vermont Law faculty will participate each academic year as visiting faculty in the accelerated MBA program. Students who graduate from either the accelerated MBA program or any of Vermont Law School’s degree programs will be guaranteed admission to the other program, provided they meet certain entrance requirements. The program is also open to foreign lawyers. The collaboration is part of a larger effort between University of Vermont and Vermont Law to create concentrated combined degree programs that benefit students. Earlier this year, the two institutions announced an initiative to develop a “3-2” program that will allow students to earn an undergraduate and law degree in five years.
