The OU MBA is recognized and valued throughout the world. The Open University Business School is one of the few institutions worldwide that are triple accredited by EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA. These are internationally recognised quality standards which independently validate the quality of the school's teaching, research and operations. The school undergoes regular reviews to ensure that standards are maintained and has successfully retained its triple accredited status since 2004. Not only is the MBA accredited but so are our BA Business Studies and other undergraduate programmes through inclusion in these reviews.

Employers value our global MBA because it delivers consistent, high quality development and shared terminologies to high potential executives wherever they are located.

MBA courses develop the global leader

The OU MBA courses have evolved in the light of the latest business research and management thinking since its introduction in 1993.

These MBA courses are designed to develop global leaders by emphasising the practice of management to ensure that knowledge and skills gained are matched by improvements in performance. Theory is not under played but is the catalyst for this practical improvement.

The approach develops your ability to design and implement business change, to the benefit of both your career and your organisation.

The OU also hosts MBA courses Webinars on a regular basis (click here for details on upcoming events).
