Experience Freeman Learning

Our broad but rigorous curriculum focuses on the core disciplines of business. After strengthening your quantitative skills in microeconomics and statistics, the MMG curriculum emphasizes finance, business analytics, marketing, management, and leadership. You’ll also take two electives from the MBA curriculum, enabling you to work alongside MBA students, and through the MMG’s Strategic Consulting capstone, you’ll put your knowledge and skills to work on a consulting project for a New Orleans company.

Master of Management Curriculum

The Master of Management degree is designed to give you a broad knowledge of business fundamentals. This intensive 10- or 18- month, 36 credit hour program begins in August.

The Freeman School’s world-renowned faculty help students develop market-relevant skills and stand out from their peers 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.

Specializations in Entrepreneurial Hospitality and Real Estate allow you to customize your coursework to meet your specific career goals. Both programs provide immersive learning experiences and opportunities to connect with our network of industry leaders.  

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 to the city.  Today the city is home to innovative businesses in a wide range of industries and a hotbed of entrepreneurial activity.

The Freeman School recognizes that today successful businesses are focused on creating distinctive customer experiences.  The specialization in Entrepreneurial Hospitality builds from the core business foundation and provides 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.
