The degree programs at the A.B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University have earned the esteemed AACSB accreditation. For over 100 years, since 1914, Tulane has developed business leaders who use their talents, knowledge, and experience to positively contribute to their local communities, the business community as a whole, and organizations worldwide. At Freeman, professors become mentors, classmates become friends, students have ample opportunity to apply the learned material, and graduates experience a lifetime of career support.
Through an innovative lens, students obtain a unique and relevant education. Undergraduates can major in Management, Finance, Marketing, or Legal Studies in Business with specialization options in Energy and Entrepreneurship for all majors. They can also gain a critical global perspective and study business abroad with an international partner institution in Morocco, Beijing, Singapore, Seoul, Sydney, Perth, Copenhagen, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Milan, Madrid, Sao Paulo, and Mexico City.
Graduate students have a large variety of degree options. There is a Full-time Masters in Business Administration, Fast Track MBA, Professional MBA, and an Executive MBA. All MBA programs, except for the EMBA, have up to two options of concentrations/specializations to choose from, including Analytics, Entrepreneurial Hospitality, Finance, Strategic Management & Innovation, Energy, Entrepreneurship, or Real Estate. STEM-designated Masters degrees are in Finance, Accounting, and Business Analytics. There is also a Masters in Management and a Master of Management in Energy. The Alliance Global MBA allows for the Tulane Masters in Global Management to be obtained as a second degree for MBA, PMBA, and EMBA students from one of the Alliance partner schools in either India, Mexico, New Orleans, Europe, Belgium, or China.
Doctoral students can achieve a Ph.D. in Business Administration with concentrations in Financial Accounting or Finance.
Freeman provides an enormous amount of opportunity for students to experience learning outside of the classroom. The business student-led organizations are the Freeman Student Government, Green Bull Investment Group, Alpha Kappa Psi, Beta Alpha Psi, BSM Major Ambassadors, Phi Alpha Delta, American Marketing Association, Beta Gamma Sigma, Delta Sigma Pi, and Startup Tulane. Graduate students compete in the National Real Estate Challenge and the Business Valuation Challenge, which Freeman Finance students secured first place in last year.
There are opportunities to learn from and engage with experts through real-world collaborative projects, build a professional network, conduct research, experience internships, consult nonprofits, and closely work with and impact local businesses. Freeman has alumni working in cities all around the world, more than 20,000, which creates an incredible network for current students.
Students get to actively manage Tulane’s endowment, the Darwin Fenner Fund, which is worth around $5.8 million. Working on the Burkenroad Reports gives students investment research experience, and Alternative Investments provide insights into debt and hedge funds. An applicable experiential learning opportunity is working with Freeman’s centers and institutes, which cover topics such as doctoral studies, research, international business, entrepreneurship, innovation, family business, executive education, and energy.
