No Saying No To Online Learning
Like it or not, the shift in the mode of learning has already happened, thanks to the global pandemic. It has also emerged as one of the most valuable tools for imparting knowledge when it comes to higher education. Reducing boundaries, it has made learning extremely convenient for students sitting in online classes connecting with international students, faculty members, and administrative staff.
But there are technological challenges that limit this mode of learning as an exclusive one. More and more universities are going to look for an option of a hybrid mode of learning and teaching where students are given equal opportunities and choices when it comes to their preference and comfort of accessing education.
According to the QS International Student Survey Report, 2020, 43% of students voted in favor of a blended mode of learning which is a 12% jump from 2018. Although just 28% of students voted in favor of an exclusive online mode of learning, which poses certain challenges in varied parts of the world.
With vaccines in sight, more and more countries will open their borders, and students are expected to able to take part in the blended mode of learning from their dream B-schools.
But, Is It A Good Time To Spend Money on Education?
A health crisis like this is not going to stay forever and while it lasts it is for the people to find solutions to make the best out of the times. While last year a lot of jobs were lost, the market picked up and positive hiring sentiments were back on track in the last quarter of the year. But, what if you decide on spending on education at this point. By the next two years, with the massive vaccination drives that are taking place worldwide, the pandemic might be a thing of the past. The class of 2023 or 2024 will then graduate into a fully recovered economy, better prepared to take up all the new jobs and openings that will spring up, making it an ideal fit for students enrolling now.
It’s The Network That Matters The Most
Even though students don’t get the opportunity to walk into their favorite campuses and mingle in person with their peers, thanks to the online mode of learning, the networking opportunities don’t stop. You get to meet and learn from hundreds of smart, ambitious, and interesting people in your dream B-school. Learning to network and gathering effective communication skills to ace interviews also come from the everyday learning at a B-school.
And not just peer learning, the opportunity to connect with influential alumni members of a B-school is what defines the investments for a high ticket degree like MBA. It’s about thinking long-term that will reap benefits for students once the pandemic is behind us in the rearview.
