Freeman's Master of Finance (MFIN) Program is an 11-month or 18-month full time program designed for recent graduates with limited or no professional experience seeking careers in finance.
Graduates of the program are prepared to pursue careers in a wide variety of fields within finance, including: corporate finance, equities, fixed income, derivatives, asset management, leveraged finance, hedge funds, venture capital, private equity, private banking, financial consulting, public finance, and finance departments of large corporations.
The program is created and taught by Freeman Finance faculty who are internationally recognized for their research in corporate finance and investments.
Coursework includes core courses in finance and accounting and the ability to take electives within a student's area of interest such as Energy, Investment Banking, Asset Management, or Real Estate. The Tulane MFIN program also offers an Energy Specialization or a Banking and Financial Services Specialization.
While the curriculum provides an in depth study of equity analysis, valuation, fixed income analytics, derivatives, and risk management, students are also able to reinforce the technical expertise developed in the classroom through participation in courses that provide real-world experience such as the Darwin Fenner Student Managed Fund and the Freeman Reports Equity Analysis program.
The Freeman Career Management Center works with students in the program to develop professional opportunities and networks within the larger financial markets.
Ranked #5 in the U.S. and #29 in the world by Financial Times in 2013.
Freeman is a Program Partner with the CFA Institute, which means the course content of the Tulane MFIN covers a significant portion of the CFA Candidate Body of Knowledge.
