May 12 Roundup

Business Schools Hope To Start On-Campus Programs In September

Only 6% of business schools globally plan to shift campus-based programs online in September, according to a survey of 227 schools by AACSB. The survey asked schools whether they are offering usually face-to-face programs virtually in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

While 95% of schools with terms beginning in the month of May are offering courses and programs online, this figure drops to 76% in June, 62% in July, and down to 6% by September.

While schools are considering online options, they are not committed to a move online and are still hopeful of a return to face-to-face teaching by the time most business school (MBA and master’s) programs start.

Aside from moving programs online, schools are also considering modularizing the term into multiple smaller sessions, and/or deferring start dates.

The problem with working from home

German b-school predicts soccer clubs will go bust!

The German Bundesliga (Germany’s top soccer league) is one of the few globally to be starting again in May as the country lifts coronavirus restrictions. However, German soccer clubs are at risk according to a report by HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management, which analyzed the sustainability of the clubs from the 1st and 2nd division of the Bundesliga using publicly available market data. 

The school says six German clubs are threatened by bankruptcy—including Schalke and Union Berlin—and another seven are at risk. The clubs require further professionalization in the areas of finance, management and player-talent development, according to the report.
