Student Spotlight: Leyla Hopkins MBA ’18 Candidate
Current William & Mary Online MBA student Leyla Hopkins needed the flexibility of an online program to balance her current career, her family and her personal life with pursuing a rigorous MBA degree, but the stigma of an online degree had made her a little cautious.
“I think part of the reason I decided to do the online program at all is because it had the William & Mary name to it, and I knew they would do the program justice,” Leyla said.
For her, “the biggest benefit is being able to say that I’m working to pursue my career goals by putting a formal education behind it.”
In our video below, Leyla explains why she chose to pursue her MBA online, why she chose William & Mary’s program, and the benefits of studying online.
