Business degrees

There are many reasons for studying business or management, from the desire to increase your knowledge or develop your existing skillset to wanting to ‘reboot’ your career entirely.

Our business courses are taught through The Open University Business School, which is ranked fifth in the world in CEO Magazine's Global MBA Rankings 2019.

Why study for a business degree with The Open University?

The Open University Business School is an acknowledged world leader in distance learning. 

The school is triple accredited by the world’s leading international management education associations. This triple accreditation makes our Business School part of an elite group: only 1 per cent of business schools worldwide have this accreditation. Therefore a qualification with us is sure to impress employers, positioning you as one of the business elite.

To date, more than 100,000 people from more than 120 countries have studied with our Business School. We believe that’s because we offer the most accessible, flexible and high-quality business education.

Career prospects for Open University business graduates

As well as the specific knowledge gained from studying one of our degree courses, you'll develop a range of transferable skills that will be prized by employers and increase your employability.

In a recent UK survey, 88% of our Business Studies graduates were employed, or combining work and study, within six months of graduation.


I couldn’t be more delighted for the recognition I have received, especially with the reputation of The Open University and from The Open University Business School, which currently holds triple accreditation.
