Providing “flexibility in learning” is the most popular purpose of existing investments in online learning technology, as mentioned by 77% of business school leaders. In addition, 82% plan to invest in online teaching in the next two years, according to a new study by AMBA & BGA in collaboration with Barco.

Brand new results show how business school executives are using new technology to reshape education in their institution. While it was initially a response to the Covid-19 pandemic, business school leaders quickly recognized the numerous avenues that educational technology can open up to education.

The results show an increase in online and hybrid learning methods as well as the use of virtual classrooms. In addition, respondents showed an interest in maintaining aspects of online learning and investing in flexible learning methods, suggesting a strong propensity for new, mixed and hybrid learning models.

David Woods-Hale, director of marketing and communications at AMBA & BGA, said, “Now that the mechanisms are in place for the effective use of technology in business schools, the opportunities for business education to advance global, agile and personalized offerings seem limitless.”

Simone Hammer, Global marketing manager for teaching and learning solutions at boat, added, ‘Business school principals now have a unique opportunity to revolutionize education. It is time to dream, be innovative and push the limits of creativity. It is time to develop and optimize new models for cutting-edge business education in an era of technology and change, while enabling great learning outcomes for all categories of learners worldwide. ´

The research was conducted by AMBA & BGA in the summer of 2021 by distributing an online questionnaire that found 171 participants. You can read the full report here.
