Research Conference 2021

Challenges and Prospects of Business Education in a Post Covid-19 World

Wednesday, 07 July 2021

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been a watershed and a catalyst for unprecedented changes and disruptions in higher education. A sector that has previously remained most insulated from global forces, the emergence of the pandemic, compounded by the proliferation of technology, has forced stakeholders in higher education not only to adapt to the disruptions, but to evolve and re-invent itself.


The main aim of this virtual conference will be:

  • to discuss the current challenges and prospects of the online delivery of business and higher education;
  • to generate and exchange new ideas on teaching and learning in the post-COVID 19 world;
  • to provide a conceptual framework for future research in the area that would aid in the creation of evolving strategies for teaching and learning in business and higher education;
  • to provide a platform for dialogue and engagement amongst global scholars and stakeholders in business and higher education to promote further research collaborations and partnerships.

The conference proceedings will be recorded and published. It is also intended to publish the contributions and findings of the conference in the form of an edited book series at a later stage.

  • Evolving strategies and pedagogies in business and higher education;
