The Tulane University MSF program was one of the original masters programs before the degree got very popular. Students sought out Tulane because of the schools reputation nationally, but especially within Texas and the South East. The program always placed very well within the energy industry and a number of years back started a specialized masters focusing on that. That program proved to be a success just like the original masters program.
The Tulane University MSF program is now a STEM certified program. This is becoming very popular, especially for international students, as it allows graduates to stay in the US for up to 3 years after graduating. With how difficult it is to find a company to sponsor an international student, the additional time in the states is absolutely game changing. Great move on their part.
The program is 12 or 18-months in duration so the 2015 class profile is probably the most recent. Class stats look pretty reasonable and competitive.
- Avg. GMAT – 675
- Avg. GRE – 162Q / 152V
- Avg. GPA – 3.32
- Class size – 184 students
As you can see, the program is pretty popular, especially for international students. Approximately 93% of the class are international students, hailing from China, India, Canada, Mexico and the United States.

Total cost of the program has increased since I last reported. Tuition is $56,576 (including fees – $61,216).
I’ve reached out to the school to get an update on placements as well as find out what is planned in the future for the program. Once I know more, I will report back.
