BSM Completion Rates
Tulane University admits all new full-time freshmen into Newcomb-Tulane College, the undergraduate degree-granting body of the university. By the start of their junior year, students are required to declare a major and join its associated school. As such, a true freshman cohort does not exist for the A.B. Freeman School of Business; however, completion rates can be tracked beginning with the point of declaration or first junior semester. This does not include students who left the university in their freshman or sophomore years.
In the Fall of 2018, 449 students from the fall 2016 entering class were enrolled in the Freeman School Bachelor of Science in Management (BSM) program. Of that cohort (which includes sophomores, juniors and seniors), 94.7% earned a BSM by the summer of 2022. 3.3% transferred to another Tulane school and were awarded a bachelor’s degree within the same timeframe. Thus, 97.8% of the students enrolled in the BSM program as either sophomores, juniors or seniors in fall 2018 were awarded a Bachelor’s Degree by Tulane University as of summer 2022.
Tulane University’s 2016 entering freshman class, when tracked from their first semester and for six subsequent years, graduated at a rate of 87%.
