In order to be admitted to the joint program, you must first apply and be admitted to Villanova University School of Law.
You then must apply separately to the Villanova University Professional MBA Program. This application can be filed when you apply to Law School or you may wait and apply during your first year at the Law School. The Professional MBA program requires that you take the GMAT, which is a computer-adaptive test that is available year-round at local test centers. We strongly encourage students who are interested in the joint program to take the GMAT before entering law school. Given the rigors of the first year of law school, it is not advisable to spend time studying for the GMAT.
Once you have applied and been accepted separately into the J.D. program and the Professional MBA program, a determination is made by the Director of the Law School's joint program and the Director the Professional MBA Program at the Villanova School of Business whether you are an acceptable candidate for the joint program.
