There are many opportunities for MBA students to network with potential employers, alumni and other professionals in selected industries. All students are encouraged to maximize their opportunities while widening their circle of professionals connections.
During the Fall semester, several opportunities exist for career networking and recruiting for MBA students on and off campus. There are two main categories of events open to MBA students for networking and recruiting that Freeman students can participate in. They are the national diversity MBA conferences/career fairs and Freeman Days.
The Freeman School of Business counts on MBA students to report their employment offers and offers accepted. The results of this reporting is central to statistics, rankings and most importantly the outward value placed on the Tulane MBA. The Career Management Center has been charged by the university and specifically the Freeman School of Business as the collection point for this data. We request that MBA students report their internships (accepted), full-time offers (offers made and offers accepted) and any other post graduation plans such as starting a business or continuing education.
You may complete the form below and drop off in the Career Management Center or scan and email to your Career Consultant as listed above.

MBA students should schedule mock interviews with their Career Consultant to help prepare for the particular type of interview styles often associated with MBA Recruiting. Employers and Human Resources professionals will interview MBA graduates completely differently than they would other candidates. Please complete the form below and bring to the CMC when you schedule your mock interview appointment.

National Diversity MBA Conferences/Career Fairs
Each of the events listed below are individual organizations dedicated to the inclusion of the groups in which they represent as members. Their goal is to meet the unique challenges of diversity inclusion of their particular populations. However, during the days of their national conferences, the largest numbers of companies recruiting MBA students convene for career fairs and recruiting related to those national events. Although the conference is diversity in nature, in many ways, the career fairs represent the strength of inclusion as MBA students from all universities participate in the recruiting opportunities.
The Freeman CMC will attend three of the four conferences to provide support to student attendees and interface with employers attending the event. Those MBA students graduating soon or seeking summer internships should make every effort to attend at least of the conferences listed below:
National Association of Asian MBAs
Annual Conference and Career Fair
National Black MBA Association
Annual Conference and Exposition
National Society of Hispanic MBAs
MBA Women International
Leadership Conference and Career Fair
Please note: These events above have individual registration fees for the conference and/or the career fair. You will not be permitted to enter the career fair without proper registration as set forth by the organization sponsoring the event.
Freeman Days are organized networking events sponsored in New York, Houston, Chicago and New Orleans each year with emphasis on career education, alumni networking and employment opportunity exploration. The goal for each Freeman Days event is to provide a meaningful experience for visiting students while engaging with company and alumni contacts that may be out-of-reach if not for the Freeman Days events.
The format of Freeman Days allows current students to visit corporate offices and learn more about the company as well as make networking connections with Freeman School of Business Alumni and non-business Tulane Alumni as well.
Freeman Days are open to all Freeman School of Business students and likewise involve networking contacts and opportunities for all students. MBA students are welcome and encouraged to attend Freeman Days, they should be aware that the visits and networking will include students other than those completing an MBA degree. MBA students in an active job search are encouraged to attend one of the National MBA conferences as listed above.
