Financial Times ranks Freeman MFIN among Top 10 in US

Tulane TIPS Student Portfolio Managers Competition
In February, a team of Freeman School Master of Finance students won first place in the 2017 TIPS Student Portfolio Managers Competition. The Financial Times has again ranked Freeman’s MFIN program as one of the best in the U.S.

 
The Financial Times has again ranked the Master of Finance (MFIN) program at Tulane University’s A. B. Freeman School of Business as one of the best programs in the world.

In its 2017 ranking of pre-experience programs, published today, the Freeman MFIN program is ranked 9th in the U.S. and 49th in the world. While this year’s global ranking is six spots lower than last year’s, more universities, both domestic and foreign, participated in this year’s ranking.

“The Financial Times’ rankings of business school educational programs are among the most highly respected in the world,” said Ira Solomon, dean of the Freeman School. “We are gratified that the excellence of our MFIN program continues to be recognized and that the Financial Times continues to place the Freeman MFIN among the best such programs in the world.”

A pre-experience program enrolls students with little or no work experience. The FT calculates its rankings according to information collected through two separate surveys: one completed by the business schools (42 percent of survey weight) and the second by their alumni who graduated in 2014 (58 percent of survey weight). The greatest weighting in the alumni survey deals with current salary and salary increases since graduation.  The business school survey deals with school diversity, faculty research and international experience of students.
