Tulane - Freeman Launches Master of Finance Program in China

18-month post-experience program offered in Beijing

Tulane University's Freeman School of Business has announced that it has launched a Professional Master of Finance degree program (MFin) in Beijing.

The program is delivered through a partnership with the Graduate School of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and is aimed at working professionals in Beijing. It takes 18 months to complete.

The curriculum is heavily quantitative and covers topics ranging from econometrics to valuation and risk management. Since it is a part-time program, one or two intensive classes are delivered per month.

Tulane - Freeman also offers a Master of Finance program on its home campus in New Orleans, which takes 12 months to complete and is ranked in the current Financial Times' Master of Finance ranking. Unlike the new program in Beijing, the New Orleans-based one is a full-time program, and is designed for those without work experience.

Tulane's announcement comes at a time when Western business schools are jockeying to deliver business programs in China. Just this year, several new China-based business programs, offered in partnership with Western business schools, have been already announced. In January, for instance, Northwestern - Kellogg announced that it would offer an Executive MBA program in Beijing, through a partnership with Peking University's Guanghua School of Management.

Likewise, in June, Cornell University's Johnson Graduate School of Management and Tsinghua University's PBC School of Finance  announced the launch of a new joint MBA degree based in Beijing.

And that same month, London Business School announced that it was partnering with Fudan University's School of Management to offer a Master of Management program in Shanghai.

To apply for the new Tulane MFin program in Beijing, an undergraduate degree and at least one year of work experience is required. Applicants also need to pass an English language test, such as the TOEFL or IELTS.
