The Freeman School’s world-renowned faculty help students develop market-relevant skills to stand out in a competitive job market.

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).

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 a wide range of industries and is known as a hot bed of entrepreneurial activity.

The Freeman School recognizes that today's successful businesses are focused on creating distinctive customer experiences.  The specialization in Entrepreneurial Hospitality builds on the core business foundation provided by the MMG and adds course work to support 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.  The course focuses on traditional hospitality industry segments as well as 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. Through the course students learn how to assess, plan, finance, launch, manage, and harvest a scalable, high-growth new venture.
  • 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 the development of 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 in by addressing real world company problems.
  • Hospitality Real Estate Development, in this project-based course students work to develop a real estate project from concept to planning, market analysis, financing and management and present a proposal to industry practitioners.
  • Strategic Consulting in Organizations, in this course, students prepare for internal and external consulting roles in a variety of organizations.  Students complete a hospitality related project for a real client, engaging directly with industry practitioners throughout the course.


Real Estate

New Orleans is an exceptional place 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 blends with the innovative development strategies currently driving the reinvestment in and revitalization of the city. A specialization in real estate will equip you with the tools for a career in real estate development, finance, analytics, management or consulting.

To earn a specialization in real estate, you will complete elective coursework providing robust knowledge of the real estate industry. Courses are offered in Real Estate Finance, The Business of Real Estate Development, Cases in Real Estate, and Hospitality Real Estate Development. Our signature course, the week-long intensive Real Estate Industry Seminar, culminates in an experiential learning project that applies finance and economics principles to a real-world problem, providing an understanding of the industry and its dynamics.
