The Altman Program accepts applications from prospective students who have already been admitted to Tulane and who have a genuine interest in both business and international affairs. The ideal Altman student is well rounded and demonstrates leadership potential and a global perspective.
The Altman Program is quite demanding, with a mandatory summer course at the end of the freshman year and a junior year abroad in which the student will be expected to take the majority of his/her courses in their target language. While fulfilling the requirements for dual degrees, students will also be expected to fulfill the public service graduate requirement, degree capstones, and Altman senior seminars. As a result, only academically accomplished and ambitious students will be accepted into the program as entering freshmen. Applicants should have preliminary language proficiency, as evidenced by their placement into at least the second semester of their chosen language of study (especially for commonly taught languages such as Spanish and French). It is recommended that students applying to the Altman program should have earned 10-12 Advanced Placement or equivalent credits before matriculating at Tulane. Included would be English 1010 plus two additional courses that satisfy specific requirements for the BA or BSM degrees, such as MATH 1210, Foreign Language at the 2030 level, PSYC 1000, ECON 1010, or a course that satisfies the lab science requirement.
The 2017 application will go live January 2nd. The early application deadline will be February 15th, and the final deadline will be March 15th. Those who submit their applications before February 15th will be in the pipeline for earlier interviews and possibly earlier admission to the program.
Please note that your application will be reviewed only if accompanied by a letter of recommendation (LOR) from a teacher or school adviser. You can find the specifics of the LOR just below the application link.
In preparation for completing the application, please become familiar with the Curricular Requirements of the program.
