One of the Freeman School’s strategic goals is to be a leader in business education in China. We pursue this goal through our strategic partnership with the Graduate School of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (GSCASS)--one of the exemplary research and academic institutions of China. The Professional Master of Finance Program (MFIN) & Master of Management in Energy (MME) offered jointly with GSCASS in China is a joint venture that draws upon the strengths of the faculty of a distinguished Chinese research institution and the expertise of US faculty from Tulane to provide experienced finance & energy professionals in the gloable area a unique and high quality graduate degree program.
Our commitment to China is partly historic and partly opportunistic. Tulane’s business school has recruited executives from China into our Executive MBA programs since 1994 and admits over 100 students from China each year into our graduate programs at Tulane University located in New Orleans, Louisiana. Our strategic focus on finance, accounting, energy, and international business provides Chinese students studying at Tulane with a broad set of educational options for the development of their careers. These same strengths are reflected in the expertise of our faculty teaching in the CASS-Tulane Professional MFIN & MME programs in China.
We look forward to having the finance & energy professionals pursuing the programs visit our campus in New Orleans. They will spend two weeks in the US as part of their programs and have the opportunity to learn about our university, our culture, and our economy. New Orleans has a rich French and Spanish cultural heritage and is one of the most sought after travel destinations in the US. It has a world-class port that connects us to the rest of the world through trade and commerce. There are strong industrial sectors of oil and gas extraction, fishing, and agriculture. New Orleans also has a booming tourist industry because of its fascinating history, its distinctive and very high-quality cuisine, and its world famous jazz music.
We are very proud of our partnership with the Graduation School of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences via which we offer this important graduate level professional degree program and it serves as a wonderful example of our commitment to China.
