EY has forged a unique partnership with Hult International Business School to offers its employees an online MBA for free

For years, business schools have anxiously watched and worried about corporate attempts to educate their own employees. The biggest impact of these efforts has been by far on executive education, highly lucrative multi-day and multi-week certificate courses offered at many of the top business schools.

But now, there’s a new potential threat in the announcement that EY, the Big Four accounting and consulting giant, has partnered with Hult International Business School on an online MBA program that it will make available for free to all of EY staffers across the world.

Many women in the U.S. have gotten used to getting birth control free, thanks to the passage of the Affordable Care Act almost a decade ago, which required most employers to fully cover contraceptive care.

Many Americans have embraced health officials’ recommendation to wear masks in public, and those who refuse to mask up are likely to encounter increasing pressure in the coming weeks and months.

There is a “sizable minority” of Americans who are skeptical, Ashish Jha, director of the Harvard Global Health Institute, told USA TODAY – evidenced in part by numerous viral videos showing shoppers flouting mask rules.

Critics say mask mandates infringe on their personal freedom. Some right-leaning Americans call masks a tool of oppression, Democratic conspiracy and even sacrilege.

Evidence shows face coverings are an effective way of slowing the spread of COVID-19, leading more state leaders to enact mask mandates. Friday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, said face coverings were “the only way” to avoid another shutdown of the state’s economy.

Officials voting to require face masks in public have faced lawsuits and have been shouted down by
