Freeman maintains bilateral partnerships with over 40 peer institutions in at least 20 countries. Freeman students can choose to spend one or two semesters at any one of those institutions, thereby creating an "exchange spot" for an incoming student from that institution. Therefore both outgoing ("study abroad") as well as incoming ("exchange") students are assisted by the Study Abroad & Exchange advisors. Programming for both the incoming and outbound students help provide additional connections for all students while abroad and on the Tulane campus. 

Freeman Study Abroad participants are directly enrolled at the partner institution and fully experience campus life in the host country. Courses are most often taught in English by Freeman-affiliated international faculty and include both local and international students. If students are proficient in the host country language, they can also take courses in that language of instruction. Freeman programs are a good fit for independent and self-motivated students. They offer a broad range of academic offerings, cultural immersion and freedom to engage in extracurricular activities at the host university. These programs are governed by the BSM and MBA Curriculum Committees and are managed by the staff of Study Abroad & Exchange.

Program Selection

Study Abroad & Exchange staff members are available for student advising appointments in order to assist students through the process of selecting the right program for them. Factors that students should weigh include academics, personal goals, professional goals, language(s) of instruction, level of immersion, host university environment and support services, rankings and academic rigor, safety and security, housing preferences, financial considerations, academic calendars and program reviews. Freeman students can make appointments, find information on eligibility, deadline dates, program dates, and more online via the secure FreemanAbroad portal.
