Abstract

The focal point of this study was: Who is the beneficiary of educational assistance programs? Following focus group interviews, a survey instrument was developed. Responses were received from 455 people participating in various company educational assistance plans while enrolled in a mediumsized West Coast University's MBA program. Findings suggest that neither individuals nor their organizations (supervisors) collaborate to maximize the integration of employees' educational experiences with both job and career opportunities. Suggestions for improving this situation are offered.
