Freeman tops the nation in MBA employment

Freeman Days

Recruiting events like Freeman Days, above, helped the Freeman School achieve the nation’s highest employment rate for MBA graduates in 2011.

The A. B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University is the top school in the nation for MBA placement according to the latest U.S. News & World Report survey of business schools. The MBA placement data were published in March as part of U.S. News & World Report’s annual feature on America’s best graduate schools.

In 2011, 98.1 percent of the Freeman School’s full-time MBA class who were seeking employment were employed three months after graduation. That percentage was the best of the 135 business schools that reported employment data to U.S. News & World Report and had at least 20 graduates seeking jobs.

Since 2008, the Freeman School has invested significant resources in its career services area, hiring additional corporate outreach personnel and rolling out a host of new initiatives to connect and engage with more recruiters and hiring managers.

“Placement is just one measure of an MBA program’s success, but I’m delighted to see that the hard work of our students is being recognized,” said Ira Solomon, dean of the Freeman School. “Our Career Management Center does an outstanding job connecting students with employment opportunities, and it’s important to note that many of those opportunities have come, either directly or indirectly, from our alumni. We wouldn’t have been able to achieve this exceptional level of success without their tremendous involvement and support, so we owe them our sincere thanks.”
