Quantitative reasoning

A hallmark of this program is strengthening your quantitative reasoning skills. Whether choosing which projects to fund or achieving sustainability for your social enterprise, an ability to evaluate and apply quantitative data is critical. For this reason, the program has two prerequisite courses:

  1. An introductory microeconomics course (e.g., ECON 1010, Intro to Microeconomics, at Tulane)
  2. A college-level mathematics or statistics course, or a data analysis course specific to your major, such as introductory statistics for the social sciences At Tulane, this might be MATH 1210 (Calculus I), PSYC 3090 (Psychological Applications of Univariate Statistics I), SPHU 3160 (Biostatistics in Public Health), or MATH 1110 (Probability and Statistics I).

Specializations

Specializations in Entrepreneurial Hospitality or Real Estate allow students to customize coursework to meet specific career goals. Both programs provide immersive learning experiences and opportunities to connect with our network of industry leaders.  

Entrepreneurial Hospitality

New Orleans has a long history of creating new business ventures around distinctive customer experiences.  By the end of the 19th century, the city had developed a wide range of sensory experiences to attract and engage visitors.  Today the city is home to innovative businesses in many industries and is known as a hotbed of entrepreneurial activity.

The Freeman School recognizes that today's successful businesses are focused on creating distinctive customer experiences.  The specialization in Entrepreneurial Hospitality through the Greenbaum Family Program builds on the core business foundation provided by the MMG. The coursework supports a wide variety of career paths. 

The specialization includes these action-learning courses:

  • Entrepreneurial Hospitality Seminar, a week-long intensive course, examines the role of customer experience in value creation and how companies can position experience as a source of competitive analysis.  It focuses on traditional hospitality industry segments and related industries such as retail, healthcare, and consumer products.
  • New Venture Planning, in this course, you will support real entrepreneurs as they develop their businesses and seek funding from investors. Students learn how to assess, plan, finance, launch, manage and harvest a scalable, high-growth new venture through the course.
  • New Product Development teaches students the fundamentals of new product development and provides first-hand experiences through application. The course provides an understanding of the design innovation process and a set of tools and experiences in finding and developing innovative solutions to address strategic business problems in any industry.
  • Market Planning and Implementation, this course focuses on developing a marketing strategy based on principles, tools, and the elements of multiple marketing disciplines.  It challenges students to take a manager's perspective and responsibilities by addressing real-world company problems.
  • Hospitality Real Estate Development, is a project-based course. Students create a real estate project from concept to planning, market analysis, financing, and management, then present a proposal to industry practitioners.

Real Estate

New Orleans is an exceptional location to study real estate because of its storied history, rapid growth, and ongoing sustainable redevelopment. The city's rich architectural heritage and dedication to preservation blend with the innovative development strategies currently driving the reinvestment and revitalization of the city. A specialization in real estate equips students with the tools for a career in real estate development, finance, analytics, management, or consulting.

To earn a specialization in real estate, students will complete elective coursework gaining a robust knowledge of the real estate industry. These classes are Real Estate Finance, The Business of Real Estate Development, Cases in Real Estate, and Hospitality Real Estate Development. Our signature course, Real Estate Industry Seminar, culminates in an experiential learning project. Students apply finance and economics principles to a real-world problem resulting in an understanding of the industry and its dynamics.
