The Freeman Experience

Our graduates are career ready, armed with the knowledge and skills that broadly prepare them for a successful transition into their professional lives. 

Through specialized curricula and one-on-one work with career consultants, Freeman students master the competencies that ensure career success.

We take a comprehensive approach to preparing students for the future by developing critical thinking skills and ethical decision making. As a result, we regularly hear that Freeman graduates are promotable sooner. 

Here is just some what sets us apart:

Experiential Learning

Our students are immersed in the real world from day one. Through one-of-a-kind programs - like Burkenroad Reports and the Darwin Fenner Student Managed Fund– our students can practice critical thinking and problem solving, fine-tune their oral and written communication skills, and build relationships through teamwork and collaboration. Our graduates can immediately put their knowledge to work for your company.

Degree Specializations

Our students can pursue a specialization to expand and enhance their professional toolkit, as well as tailor their program to meet their career goals – and your needs. By choosing electives in a targeted area, Freeman students gain critical skills and knowledge in areas essential to your business. 

STEM-Designated

Our STEM-designated programs allow our international students to extend their time here by two years, for a total of three years of Optional Practical Training (OPT). 

Community Engagement

Our dedication to service is part of what makes Tulane so unique. At the Freeman School, community engagement is ingrained in our curriculum, which develops are students’ impressive leadership skills and unmatched work ethic.

Global Citizenship

The Freeman School is a portal to global business. Through study abroad and international trips integrated into some programs, students are armed with global fluency and primed to make a positive impact on the world. Freeman graduates bring an international perspective to your company. 

Preparation

Freeman is the only business school that requires our BSM/MACCT students to qualify to sit for the CPA exam before graduation. Additionally, we are a program partner of the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute, and our Master of Finance program prepares students to take the CFA exam. Freeman graduates are equipped to provide both business and financial strategies that could be vital to health of your company.
