The Best Innovation Strategy award is a celebration of innovation and radical thinking in business education delivery across all areas of the business school and has been developed to recognise and reward game-changing new practices, risks, and creativity. This year, the judges are especially interested to find out how business schools have innovated and adapted considering the Covid-19 pandemic.
NEOMA Business School (France) for ‘NEOMA Business School Virtual Campus’.
NEOMA Business School was the first Business School in Europe to respond strongly to the Covid-19 crisis by launching an online virtual campus for its students, professors and staff.
The project aims to provide a place where studying, teaching, meeting, and chatting can again take place, without the need to be physically present at the School’s brick-and-mortar campuses. The tool NEOMA has chosen offers features that enable its community to stick to the reality of a Business School as much as possible.
With 3,000 students and 491 professors and staff members enrolled, the Virtual Campus has naturally imposed itself as the School’s fourth campus.
