Practice of Management
An MBA is about learning new skills and how to apply these skills to the business world. To develop this mastery, Tulane MBAs take a series of classes dedicated to developing the integrative skills necessary in the global business environment. This is about real business, working with real companies, talking to real executives, solving real problems facing contemporary business. You will work with your Tulane team to understand the challenge and develop the solution. The choices you make will enrich the MBA experience, and help you build a network of business contacts for your future. In two years, you'll move from discussing strategies to developing plans that you know will work.
