Global business newspaper Financial Times named the A. B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University one of the 10 best schools for finance in the world, based on the recommendations of more than 11,000 MBA alumni who responded to a survey.
The 10th place ranking for the Freeman School appears in the Jan. 28th issue of the magazine.
“We are delighted to be considered among the very best in the world in the area of finance,” said Angelo S. DeNisi, dean of the Freeman School. “This ranking is especially gratifying because it is based on the recommendations of MBA graduates working alongside our alumni in the marketplace.”
Other finance programs making the list include New York University’s Stern School of Business, University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, William E. Simon Graduate School of Business Administration at the University of Rochester, University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business and Columbia Business School, among others.
The Freeman School’s finance concentration emphasizes practical skills and a strong career focus. Experiential learning offerings — including the Burkenroad Reports equities research program, the Darwin Fenner Student Managed Fund and trading courses utilizing industry-leading software from Reuters and Trading Technologies — enable students to hit the ground running in fields such as investment banking, portfolio management and commodity trading.
In addition to the finance ranking, Financial Times placed the Freeman School’s overall MBA program 46th among U.S. schools and 80th internationally. Last year, Freeman ranked 58th nationally and 95th internationally on the list.
Established in 1914, the Freeman School of Business is a founding member of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the premier accrediting body for business schools. Today, Freeman is a leading, internationally recognized business school with more than 1,500 students in programs spanning three continents.
The Freeman School is consistently listed among the nation’s best business schools by publications including U.S. News & World Report, BusinessWeek, Forbes, Financial Times and Latin America’s AméricaEconomía.
