"I was as uncertain as anybody else about virtual learning. Until I had my first live online course at Hult. The learnings, knowledge, and experiences shared were outstanding. And the real “wow” factor is that the school, the incredibly passionate professor, and the course have all transformed me. I'm ready for the future with a resilient mindset. I've been impacted by the positive energy and knowledge transmitted through screens by my professor, my colleagues—and my friends."
