The women contribution to GDP is also significantly increasing during the same period. There are two - a) on campus, and b) distance learning systems; are simultaneously running in Bangladesh. 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 socio-economic factors. Then an econometric model will be performed to explain the income sensitivity to Distance Learning Program in Bangladesh.
