European Programs

The Freeman School strategy in Europe has been primarily to affiliate with top institutions to provide our students with the opportunity to study and work in Europe. We have also received a number of students from European business schools to our programs at Tulane through exchange arrangements.

In the late 1980's Tulane assisted with the establishment of the International Management Center in Budapest, Hungary and the Czech Management Center in Prague, Czech which were the two initial western style business programs in eastern Europe. This affiliation lead to the advanced placement agreement whereby the Freeman School should admit European students into the second year of the MBA program at Tulane and awards these students the Tulane MBA degree upon successful completion of the second year of the MBA curriculum. Students from the International Management Center and Czech Management Center were provided this opportunity originally. Since 1989, we have added several other schools including the University of Innsbruck, the Helenski School of Business and Economics, the Leipzig School of Management and the University of Bordeaux into our advance placement program.

Freeman School undergraduate students have the opportunity to spend a semester abroad at top institutions in Europe. These include ESSEC in Paris, and the University of Bordeaux in Bordeaux, France; ICADE in Madrid, Spain; the University of Innsbruck in Innsbruck, Austria; and Helenski School of Business and Economics in Helenski, Finland. The Freeman School has also received a number of students on semester exchanges from these institutions.

Our study abroad programs in Europe have been conducted with the assistance of HEC Jouy-en-Josas, France; ESSEC in Paris, France; International Management Center in Budapest, Czech Management Center in Prague, ICADE in Madrid, Spain and IESE in Barcelona, Spain. This network of outstanding institutions has provided our students with excellent choices for study in Europe as well as a uniquely diverse student body here at the Freeman School in New Orleans.
