CNBC’s “Mad Money w/ Jim Cramer” is coming to Tulane University’s A.B. Freeman School of Business Oct. 19 to broadcast in front of a live audience as part of the show’s “Back to School Tour.”
The show, which will broadcast from Dixon Hall, will air at 5 p.m. CT on CNBC and re-air at 10 later that evening. Student tickets to the show will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at two distribution events on campus from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 5 in the lobby of Goldring/Woldenberg Hall II at the A.B. Freeman School of Business and Wednesday, Oct. 6 on the main floor of the Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life. Students can reserve their tickets online at MadMoney.CNBC.com beginning Oct. 1.
To prepare for the show, “Mad Money” producers will ask students to do their best Hullabaloo on camera at both ticketing events. Students and all of “Cramerica” will then vote for their favorite cheer on MadMoney.CNBC.com. The winner will kick off the Lightning Round with Jim Cramer during the show!
No strangers to giving out investment advice, Freeman students will get a chance to give Cramer their top stock picks on national television. Freeman was one of the first business schools to start a student-led and published securities research program, Burkenroad Reports. The program, which follows more than 40 small-cap companies in six Southern states, spawned a mutual fund that has outperformed 99 percent of U.S. mutual funds since its inception in 2001. Students are also actively managing more than $2 million in endowment funding through the Darwin Fenner Student Managed Fund and beating many Wall Street mutual fund managers in the process.
“We’re delighted to bring Jim Cramer and ‘Mad Money’ to Tulane,” says Angelo DeNisi, dean of the A.B. Freeman School of Business. “The Freeman School has long specialized in preparing students for careers in finance. Hosting ‘Mad Money’ at Tulane is a great opportunity to showcase programs like Burkenroad Reports and the Darwin Fenner fund before a national audience.”
Since 2006, the "Mad Money Back to School Tour" has been empowering students, and giving them the chance to experience the energy, passion and excitement of its popular host by being a part of the studio audience. Previously, "Mad Money" traveled to Georgia Tech's School of Management, the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California, Harvard Law School, The Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, Columbia Business School Boston College, Georgetown University, The Darden School of Business at The University of Virginia, the Red McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin, Indiana University's Kelley School of Business, Penn State University and the University of Iowa.
