Professor Ken Carroll, a Freeman alumnus, returned to Freeman in 2012 as a professor of practice to share his vast and varied real-world experience with our community.
His professional background includes more than 14 years as a research analyst with Johnson Rice & Co., LLC, with a focus on the exploration and production sector. Prior to joining Johnson Rice, Mr. Carroll was an analyst in the financial planning group with Entergy Corporation. He also spent 10 years working in the restaurant industry as a kitchen manager at the NOLA restaurant, Arnaud’s.
- Professor Carroll teaches Energy Financial Modeling, which ties into the energy specialization for undergraduates and serves as an elective for graduate students pursuing a Master’s in Management in Energy.
- He also teaches in the Freeman Reports course, in which students do similar work to those in Burkenroad Reports: in a classroom setting, students research a company and implement their research through an intensive report.
Forges Connections for Students
Drawing on his extensive industry network, Professor Carroll often helps facilitate the career placement of graduates. His students have gone on to find work at Goldman Sachs, Johnson Rice, Deutsche Bank, Philips 66, Koch Industries, and more. He loves interacting with Freeman’s solid, hard-working students and often keeps in touch with them as their careers unfold.
Developed Freeman Reports Course
Following a similar format to Freeman’s well-known Burkenroad Reports class, Freeman Reports is exclusively for MFIN students. The class is a sort of modeling lab, tying together key aspects of business communications, modeling, and corporate finance for MFIN students as they analyze real, local organizations.
