MBAs work for Women,too !
No excuse for both sexes not to pursue biz degrees, Anne Howland writes in this article

A recent poll of 400 Canadian business leaders showed 56% of women in senior-level positions believe there are multiple barriers to female enrolment in MBA programs.
Interestingly, the survey commissioned by the Queen's School of Business found that just 30% of men in senior positions feel the same way.

The obstacles most often cited by women are family responsibilities (36%), lack of financial resources (18%) and lack of female role models (6%).

Canada cannot compete in a global marketplace if half of the nation's potential talent pool feels discouraged from pursuing the crucial business training that comes with an MBA," according to Shannon Goodspeed, director of the Queen's MBA for Science and Technology.
