This project will examine female income sensitivity to degree awarding programs in Open and Distance Learning Systems (ODL) offered by Bangladesh Open University (BOU). A survey will be executed on female graduates or learners of BOU as how these programs affect income level considering the other relevant socioeconomic factors.
