A key outcome of the research is that 88 per cent of business school leaders rate student engagement with learning material as being either ‘high’ or ‘very high’ when students are on campus. The equivalent figure when rating engagement among students working online is just 44 per cent. Additionally, 70 per cent of leaders said that creating an inclusive environment is easier when students are on campus than when they are online.
These results are just some of the key findings from a new report from AMBA & BGA, in association with Cengage, entitled:
Connected: student engagement and community building at business schools.
This report was based on an online quantitative survey of senior business school leaders from AMBA & BGA accredited business schools. In total, 155 business school decision-makers participated.
