Covid-19 has turned business school programs upside down. The persistence of the virus, social-distancing requirements, and travel restrictions keep many campuses shuttered or barely open. Remote learning robs students of valuable networking opportunities. Professors and students try hard to adapt. Schools struggle to meet their costs and justify their tuition.
How do we rank B-Schools in such an environment? We don't.
Instead we focus on getting the B-School community back on its feet. We ask: What's working, what's not, and how would you like B-School education to change now and when it emerges from a global pandemic. To find answers, we surveyed 3,532 MBA students from 95 schools around the world.
The results surprised us. Despite the uproar when schools shifted to online teaching, half the students would be willing to take a portion of their courses online in exchange for tuition cuts. Professors actually received high marks for their...

While Lagoa has only been on the federal bench since 2019, earlier this month she took part in a major case limiting voting by ex-felons.

- "The consensus view of investors is cyclicals will outperform when a vaccine is identified," the strategists wrote. "However, the correlation of returns with the prospects for a vaccine suggest value rather than cyclicals is the better tactical expression of this view."
LONDON (Reuters) - British manufacturers see no evidence of a ‘V’-shaped recovery from the coronavirus pandemic underway and many are planning to slash investment, a business survey showed on Monday.
The Make UK industry association and accountants BDO said output and orders had improved from historic lows struck last quarter during the depths of the pandemic.
