NOTES

Students are allowed to use the BSM degree requirements to meet the Newcomb-Tulane College core curriculum and 34-45 credit-hour requirements. All major and minor requirements are written with this assumption.

Students can use the business TIDES courses to satisfy the first public service requirement. Students who successfully complete TIDB 1010 or 1020, and TIDB 1110 with TIDB 1890 will satisfy the first public service requirement. One public service credit will be added for students who take both TIDB 1010 or TIDB 1020, and TIDB 1110 with TIDB 1890. Students are encouraged to take public service courses. A maximum of two public service add-on credits can be used toward the 122 credit hours required for the BSM degree.

Business majors are required to take two TIDES courses (TIDB 1010 or TIDB 1020 in the fall and TIDB 1110 in the spring) for 1.5 credits each. This exceeds the Newcomb-Tulane College core curriculum requirement. (If the business major decision is made after the first semester of the first year, but before the sophomore year, the student must complete TIDB1110 or LGST 4100 or MGMT 4150. If the business major decision is made after the first year and the student did not complete TIDB 1110, the student must complete either LGST 4100 or MGMT 4150).

One course must be from a list of approved courses in Western Traditions; and one course must be from a list of approved courses in Outside Western Traditions or Comparative Cultures and International Perspectives.

Students may use ECON 1010 and ECON 1020 to satisfy the Newcomb-Tulane College core requirement for social sciences.

One of these courses must include a laboratory component.

Students may use PSYC 1000 to satisfy the Newcomb-Tulane College core requirement for a life science.

Students may use MATH 1150 and 1160, MATH 1210, or MATH 1140 to satisfy the Newcomb-Tulane College core requirement for quantitative reasoning. MATH 1150 and 1160 or 1210 is required for students admitted Fall 2014 and later. MATH 1230 or MATH 3080 may substitute for MATH 1140.

MGMT 4010 and MGMT 4900 (taken simultaneously) are the capstone courses for business majors and satisfy the Newcomb-Tulane College core requirement for the capstone experience.

Students may fulfill free electives at the Schools of Architecture, Business, Liberal Arts, Public Health and Tropical Medicine, and Science and Engineering. Students may fulfill up to nine credits at the School of Continuing Studies and Social Work, subject to restrictions listed in the degree requirements of the Newcomb-Tulane College catalog.

BSM students earn a minimum of 122 credit hours to graduate. This number may increase if students choose a double major or a minor, or take excluded classes listed in the Degree Requirements section of the Newcomb-Tulane College catalog.

Quick Links

The Management major includes core and elective courses to address these learning objectives. Several of the classes use participant-centered learning methods such as exercises and case analyses that foster students' critical and innovative thinking skills, their team leadership and team work skills, and communication skills through presentations, all of which are important skills to achieve success in today's corporate world.

Students who have recently majored in management have pursued jobs as, for example, Project Manager (e.g. Epic Systems, Motorola, Schematic), Associate Product Manager (e.g. Yahoo!), Manager-In-Training (e.g. ABC Supply, Abercrombie & Fitch, Cintas, Enterprise, JCPenney, Sherwin Williams, Verizon Wireless), Operations Manager (NOLA Couture) and Special Events Coordinator (Woodberry Events).

TWO TRACKS

Students majoring in management choose between two tracks - Consulting and Entrepreneurship. Both tracks provide students with experiential learning opportunities embedded in courses.

Consulting: Students choosing the consulting track will take a course on strategic consulting that is structured around a real project with a real client, usually a local business or corporation, for whom students develop solutions to business problems and business challenges. This real client engagement presents students with the opportunity to apply their knowledge from various business functions (e.g. accounting, finance, marketing, etc.) to solving real-world business problems. Students acquire valuable skills such as handling client engagements, working in teams, identifying and framing problems, etc.

Entrepreneurship: Students choosing the entrepreneurship track will take a course on the management of new ventures that is structured around developing a real new venture plan. Students are presented with the opportunity to apply their knowledge from various business functions (e.g. accounting, finance, marketing, etc.) to conceive and develop a business plan for a new venture.  This course will allow students to experience the entrepreneurial process first hand, learn about traditional and social entrepreneurship business models, and discuss new ventures in different industries (e.g. high versus low-technology, or product versus service oriented). 

The Freeman School was ranked 4th among the best Entrepreneurship programs by Entrepreneur Magazine and the Princeton Review (2009).

The Freeman School of Business provides students with multiple opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to real-life community consulting projects, new venture initiatives, and business plan competitions. The Freeman School's entrepreneurial programs are brought together through the Levy Rosenblum Institute. The institute focuses on new businesses, family business, and social entrepreneurship.

Tulane Entrepreneurs Association(TEA)
TEA's mission is to assist members in expanding their entrepreneurial skill base. TEA sponsors lectures, workshops, and social networking events, and provides student entrepreneurs with assistance in organizing their own ventures.
