Erin Boehmer lives in Boston, but this summer, the 24-year-old will earn a master’s in information and data science from U.C. Berkeley.
The diploma won’t say “online,” and it won’t have been completed through a massive course depository like Coursera. Instead, Boehmer will have completed a bona fide Berkeley graduate program with the help of a company called 2U.
Right now, the company has agreements with 13 universities, including Yale, Georgetown and Syracuse, serving around 13,000 students from nearly 80 countries.
