Since the middle of March, TBS Business School campuses around the world have been closed. Neither alumni, nor staff, nor teachers can access them, but academic life continues, almost, more alive than ever. Higher education must also be reinvented to better support students, as well as to guarantee its mission of public interest.
The distance learning modality is a reality from the day after the closure of the facilities for the educational continuity of its 5,500 students. TBS Business School was, in fact, the first school to earn the 4 Digital label, given by the Conférence des Grandes Écoles (CGE), since it managed to change its face-to-face mode to distance teaching in a short period of time.
For the first week of remote work, TBS organized 229 virtual classes, plus coaching sessions and language courses. Therefore, the teaching staff provided 5,000 hours of daily lessons to maintain the social bond with the students, while remaining guarantors of their efforts and progress.
