Scholarship Benefits Business Students

Executive MBA Program student Adrian Cooper ’22 is the current recipient of the William L’Heureux MBA Endowed Scholarship from the School of Economics and Business Administration. Adrian has served in the U.S. military and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Advertising from San Francisco’s Art Institute of California. Wanting to round out his art degree with business courses, he enrolled at Saint Mary’s.

Art and education have been critical to shaping who Adrian is and all he does. He likes to quote B.B. King: The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you. “This quote drives me in everything that I do,” said Adrian. “As a lifelong learner. As a student. As a professional. Never Stop Learning.”

Over the next five years, Adrian would like to join a great firm that works with data and market research, and he’d like to focus on entrepreneurship opportunities. He hopes to eventually work as a brand marketing consultant to help small businesses regain their footing after the COVID-19 pandemic.
