It also investigated the demographic characteristics of the respondents; their assessment of the change of management practices; their attitude towards changes from traditional to the new normal setup; how the school administrators manage the operation and organizational change; the significant differences in the response of students, teaching and non-teaching personnel and as to the classification whether it is a private or government owned HEIs. This study looked into the demographic profile of the respondents, the selected Higher Education Institutions in Quezon Province’s management practices and level of sustainability in post Pandemic Era; the general overview; the challenges faced; and the significant differences in the responses when grouped by demographics. The survey instruments which were prepared by the researcher in print form and Google Forms for those respondents from the First, Third, and Fourth District of Quezon were used to gather data. These were self-administered and conducted by the respondents in the selected HEIs in Quezon Province. The majority of the respondents strongly agree to enhance the management practices and strengthen the business sustainability of Higher Educational Institutions in Quezon Province.
