Penn Law and Wharton extend congratulations to the JD/MBA Class of 2013! The 12 talented students graduated with 2 degrees in 2 days – Wharton on May 12 and Penn Law on the 13th. Their graduations were celebrated with a JD/MBA reception that welcomed current students, graduates and their families, faculty, and alumni to celebrate this momentous achievement.
The JD/MBA Class of 2013 will be heading out to begin their lustrous careers in law and business. Our students have secured post-graduation employment and will be heading to firms such as JLL Partners, Kirkland & Ellis, Skadden, McKinsey, Bain, Morgan Stanley and Schulte, to name just a few. Some notable achievements of the class:
- JD/MBAs graduated with Honors at both Penn Law & Wharton – including cum laude, Palmer Scholars (top 5% of Wharton Class) and Wharton Honors (top 20%) distinctions
- One JD/MBA student was awarded Penn Law’s Nathan Burkan Memorial Award for the best paper on copyright law
- Half of the Class was honored with the Award for either Distinguished (80+ hours) or Outstanding (120+ hours) Pro Bono Service!
- Many JD/MBAs held leadership positions including chairing conferences, being presidents of Wharton clubs, editors of Penn Law journals, chairs of various conferences, including the Wharton Social Impact Conference, and competitors in business plan competitions and moot courts
We extend a fond farewell to the Class of 2013 for being such wonderful, talented and energetic ambassadors of the JD/MBA Program and look forward to welcoming the Class of 2016 to campus in a few months. The Admissions teams at both Penn Law and Wharton will be on the road this summer hosting marketing events, which are great ways to learn more about each school.
