    MBA grads go whole hog into new venture
Seth Hamstead and Simone ReggieThe local food movement is gaining popularity among foodies nationwide. In Louisiana, it seems like old hat. Whether they are eating fresh-caught shrimp, creole tomatoes or Ponchatoula strawberries, Louisianians feel that locally originated food is better. Two 2012 Freeman School MBA grads are hoping they can bring Louisiana meat into that number.

    Freeman welcomes the 2013 MFIN class
MFIN OrientationLate last month, the Freeman School welcomed 159 new Master of Finance students to New Orleans and the Freeman School for a week’s worth of orientation events heralding the start of this year’s MFIN program. This year’s class is double the size of last year’s class, part of a strategic effort on the part of the Freeman School to enhance both the size and quality of the program (which, in case you hadn’t heard, Financial Times just ranked as the 30th best masters in finance in the world and the 3rd best in the U.S.).
