Freeman Days takes over National WWII Museum

Freeman Days New Orleans

Stephen Feazell (MBA ’11) was one of 140 students who attended this year’s networking reception to meet alumni and recruiters and, hopefully, generate job leads.

In February, the Freeman School hosted its annual Freeman Days Networking Reception at the National World War II Museum’s Stage Door Canteen. The business school’s biggest annual career event, Freeman Days brings together students, alumni and corporate recruiters for an evening of professional networking followed by a day of company presentations and information sessions on campus at the business school.

This year’s events attracted 395 students, 150 alumni and 100 recruiters and company representatives, making it the biggest Freeman Days New Orleans in history.
