The recently published special evaluation on 'Studying during Corona' by the International Center for Higher Education Development (CHE) provides excellent results for the MCI. Students give the Entrepreneurial School® top marks even during corona period for its handling of the corona pandemic, the organization of studies and the framework conditions for digital teaching.

For example, 91.4% of the students in MCI Master's programs in the fields of business and society rated the overall handling of the corona pandemic as "very good" or "good", while the average rating for German universities is 83%. Another impressive result is that 94% of those surveyed at the MCI give a "very good" or "good" (average value for German universities 81%) for the organization of studies during this challenging phase.

Claudia Mössenlechner, Head of Learning Solutions and Deputy Head of the academic council emphasizes: "We are pleased that the variety of digital teaching formats, the technical framework conditions and the accessibility of contact persons in particular received excellent ratings. For years, students at MCI have benefited from innovative and modern teaching methods, and now our experience has enabled us to offer a smooth study during these challenging times".

The university's information management, the possibility of digital exchange among students and the ability to continue and complete their studies as planned also received outstanding ratings. Brigitte Auer, Head of MCI Quality Management, explains: "The enormous commitment of our teaching staff, the comprehensive support provided by our services and, above all, the high level of commitment shown by the students during this phase helped us to complete the summer semester in online format without any loss of time and in high quality. Here, we have benefited above all from the expertise we have acquired in recent years in the areas of digitized teaching and blended & online learning".
