Though that's progress, it's not nearly enough. In many management positions, women aren't faring nearly as well. Despite the overall decrease in the gender gap, human resources managers, marketing managers, and financial managers were still bringing home less than 75 percent of what their male colleagues earned. In the upper echelons of Corpo- rate America, women still have a long way to go. 2007 2017 80 percent 80 percent 74 percent 68 percent 68 percent 63 percent 82 percent 80 percent 76 percent 73 percent 74 percent 71 percent All professions Chief executives General and operations managers Human resources managers Marketing and sales managers Financial managers Women in Management Lagging Behind Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics Versus N ot everyone can take two years off work to go back to school full-time.

Women made up only 29.7 percent of EMBA students in 2016. But they outnumbered men 52 percent to 48 percent in this program in 2017. Gender parity gives women "a 'ma- jority' experience in study groups, project teams, and discussions that is elusive for them in the executive workplace," says David Schoorman, Krannert's associate dean for executive education and global programs. krannert.purdue.edu/executive/ emba/IMM-Global-EMBA a e Online Executive MBA program at Washington State University, run through the university's Carson Col- lege of Business, is 100 percent online, making it convenient for any location or circumstance. onlinemba.wsu.edu/executive-mba a Ranked by eBestSchools.org as the top on-campus executive MBA program in the country, the MBA Program for Executives at the University of Pennsyl- vania Wharton School can be completed in 24 months.
