Are Online Programs Equalizing Higher Education for Women?

Women have an opportunity now to upskill by leveraging graduate education, especially through online education. Without putting life or family on hold, women can earn a full Master’s degree in business, electrical engineering, and data science from a top-tier university like University of Illinois or University of Colorado Boulder, 100% online.

As mothers, wives, and women working in male-dominated professional fields, Brooke Elliott, Associate Dean and EY Professor in the Gies College of Business at the University of Illinois, and Quentin McAndrew, Executive Director, Digital Initiatives & Assistant Vice Provost know first-hand how important it is for women to invest in themselves.

Join Brooke and Quentin on Tuesday, June 29th, for an exclusive live discussion about how online programs are equalizing graduate education for women. The event will be moderated by Rachel Mackenzie, VP of Consumer Marketing at Coursera.
