See what students say:


A number of outstanding features distinguish the Freeman School of Business at Tulane University, particularly in the area of finance, where enrolled students enjoy “one of the best finance programs in the country.” The program is equipped with an “unmatched” trading floor; a portfolio management program (Fenner Fund) where students manage over $2.5 million in real funds; and an investment analysis program (Burkenroad Reports) where students capture stocks-under-rocks.

Finance has such a “well-deserved great reputation” at Freeman that other strengths of the program are sometimes overlooked. Marketing “continues to grow here, while the energy specialization “is very smart for this area of the country.” Freeman also excels in entrepreneurial studies; as one student explains, “I chose Tulane because of the ability to focus on entrepreneurship and the school’s access to successful entrepreneurs, through whom I could learn to be a more effective business owner.” Finally, the school recognizes the speed at which all business is becoming international through its “strong experiential Global Management program,” which “sends the entire class on three trips abroad,” thereby “emphasizing the global business curriculum in a truly hands-on environment.”

The sum is greater than the considerable parts at Freeman, students tell us. One writes, “The greatest strengths of Tulane are its abilities to integrate the different segments of business and make them relevant, not just to corporate America, but also to small business and global business. Tulane also facilitates discussion on how your business or company can align its operations to take into consideration all stakeholders, thus becoming an organization that creates both profit and social good.” An “excellent” relationship with the local community means that “business leaders around the community are accessible and supportive.” Students also appreciate how the “school administration has done a great job in the recovery efforts since Katrina.” Be forewarned that the program operates on seven-week terms that can fly by; “the first is by far the most intense, and they get gradually easier,” one student explains.
