MATLAB is compatible with macOS 11 (Big Sur) from release R2020b onwards.
For more details on compatibility and system requirements, at the following page, click Details in the Mac column for the release you want:
Earlier versions of MATLAB do not officially support macOS Big Sur. These versions may work, but MathWorks does not guarantee full compatibility with these releases on macOS Big Sur.

Similarly, I would appreciate hearing from anyone running R2020a on Big Sur.
I have no compelling reason (yet) to update MATLAB, and my home license is expired, so it would cost me.

"Nothing works on Big Sur"??
This sweeping, exagerrated statement is false. I have been running MATLAB R2020a (and everything else on both my home and work computers) just fine on Big Sur.
Can you perhaps be more specific, and therefore more helpful? Adding a windows partition or running Parallels is a pretty drastic step, that the vast majority of users are almost certainly not going to need to resort to.
