Ashlee Reilly, who completed her MBA with Carey Business School in 2018, appreciated the online program's flexibility. "I really liked how I was able to go to school at Hopkins but [live] in New York City," she says.

Before graduating, Reilly received a promotion from her current employer and found the new skills she was learning every day were immediately applicable to her new position.



ASHLEE REILLY: My name is Ashlee Reilly. I graduated from Carey in May 2018, and I did a Flex MBA in financial businesses concentration. I decided to go back to school because I was working in the finance industry, but really wanted to take that next step in my career. And by doing online, I had a lot more flexibility to be able to work a full-time position. During the program, I actually moved internally at Moody's from the research division to the rating side. A lot of the material that I learned at Carey, I found I could directly use in my new position.
