New Orleans is the cultural capital of the South, known throughout the world for its music, food and entertainment. But it’s also a 300+ year old port city with both international business connections and home-grown startups. Living here will expose you to new experiences from learning about sustainability at sea level to dancing at local festivals. Many of our students and alumni are involved in local organizations including the New Orleans Business Alliance and the Young Leadership Council.

Live music is the life-blood of New Orleans, the birthplace of eight separate genres of music from jazz to bounce. With festivals nearly every weekend, you’ll celebrate Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, local entrepreneurship and so much more.
