The Covid-19 economic crisis hit Massachusetts hard in 2020, with customers staying home, stores closing, and businesses having to lay off employees: At one point in July, the state had the highest unemployment rate in the country. At the same time, Isenberg students saw their work experience opportunities decline as hiring freezes and declines in the job market took hold.
“Our faculty members are seriously invested in teaching this population—online students are a core focus at Isenberg, not an afterthought," says Traci Hess, associate dean of graduate programs. "That is what has made the program successful for 20 years, and will make it stand out as a leader in online education for many decades in the future.”
