Globally Local | A. B. Freeman School of Business
“I lived in Paris for my fall semester abroad, and it was an amazing experience that opened my eyes to what might be possible to me outside of the U.S. and grew my interest in traveling and doing business internationally.”

Creating Tomorrow’s Impactful Leaders Today


At the Freeman School, international business isn’t a new concept. It’s been a focus of ours for more than a century. We prepare current and future business leaders to compete in the global marketplace, with an awareness of the world around them.

Our location is no coincidence. New Orleans is a hub of international trade and a global destination for business. While living and learning in this one-of-a-kind environment, you’ll gain the real-world experience to confront the challenges of international business. You’ll start thinking outside of your local community to become a global citizen.

Your portal to global business is the Freeman School’s Goldring Institute of International Business, which develops and coordinates innovative programs that equip students to thrive in the globally interconnected world of business. What we do locally creates ripples throughout the world. At the Freeman School, we cultivate your potential to make an impact as a pioneer in the global business community
