The Business Schools Association of Canada (BSAC) is delighted to present Leading the Way in the COVID-19 Recovery - Results from the 2021 Canadian Business School Survey.
This important piece of research - a collaboration between BSAC and QS Quacquarelli Symonds - serves a vital reflection on the turbulent 18 months we have experienced as a business school community, and what the future might hold as we look towards the future beyond the current pandemic.
Canada’s business schools have clearly shown a great deal of resilience to continue teaching without interruption throughout the academic year, while in many cases managing to maintain or even improve student satisfaction and achievement levels. This performance is a credit to the administrators, academics, teachers and students who persevered throughout the darkest days of the pandemic.
Encompassing the collective wisdom of 15 deans who volunteered to take part in an interview, as well as the results of an online survey to which all BSAC member schools were invited to participate, the report paints a picture of initial struggles in the early stages of the pandemic, which were met with resilience, ingenuity and entrepreneurship by teaching staff, administrators, and students alike.
