COVID-19 Crisis Lessons — Transitioning MBA Finance and Economics Classes Online

The COVID-19 Crisis directly impacted Regent University MBA students. Our analysis of student outcomes for the Spring 2020 semester provides professors at all higher education institutions practical insight into teaching during a crisis. In addition, the crisis-induced natural experiment yielded important data and conclusions about teaching complex quantitative subjects online. We look forward to sharing the results of our study and receiving feedback of our similarly impacted higher education colleagues.
