It has been ages since I last posted an update on the Tulane University Masters in Finance program. Since I have been quarantined for weeks now, I figure this is the ideal time to refresh the information on this program and provide all of you an update on what’s new. Tulane has been around for a long time now and they have a number of changes that I think all of you considering a masters degree will find interested. Enjoy!
The Tulane 2019 class profile looks strong and I will include my thoughts after I list the class statistics for you to review.
- Class Size – 136
- % International – 93%
- % Female – 45%
- Average GMAT – 640
- Average GRE – 314 (Q – 162 / V – 152)
- Average GPA – 3.24
This is a good size class and representative of what I have seen over the years. There are a number of international students in this program, but this is becoming more standard among MSF programs. Five countries are represented in this program year (US, Mexico, Canada, India and China). This is pretty diverse for a masters in finance program.
This program is now STEM Certified, something important for international students. Not much more to say about this. Smart move on their part and a huge benefit to anyone requiring sponsorship.
Admission requirements are the same as I have posted in the past. Transcripts, resume, GMAT or GRE, essay and one letter of recommendation. This is all pretty standard. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. The posted deadlines are not to be followed at this time. At the time of this writing (April 2020), the cost of attendance is $62,900.
There is a lot going on at Freeman. The program has been ranked by a number of sources and always ranks high. Students will have the ability to prepare for their CFA exam as the Tulane School is a CFA Program Partner. There are also options to work on an investment research report as part of actively managing more than $5.8 million of Tulane’s endowment. The school also has an impressive finance lab that students can utilize.
I was checking the career page for some placement information and this program did not have a current report. There is a placeholder for it so I would imagine they will be putting something together shortly. The other programs offered by Tulane have good placements with respected firms so I would assume that there will be similar outcomes for Tulane MFin students. Once I get update information I will make another post.
