Venus Williams Earns Business Degree

Clap for Venus Williams, because the tennis star has just earned her business degree.

Despite competing at the U.S. Open, the seven-time Grand Slam winner had time to head over to Indiana University East to attend her graduation.

The 35-year-old, who had been taking online classes, visited the campus for the first time for the special occasion, and she was thrilled to add another accomplishment to her list.

“It was like family, like it was my school, and I was so excited. It’s been an incredible journey,” Williams said in an IUE article.

She added, “I’ve learned so much. It was always my dream to have a business degree and I ended up going to art school so many times, but in the back of my head I felt like I needed the tools to be a better leader, to be a better planner, to be better at all of the things I wanted to do in my businesses because I’m so hands-on.”

Congratulations, Venus!
