I joined the OU Business School to study for an MBA and found it an invaluable resource to draw upon when I formed my IT consultancy business. The MBA was crucial in giving me the skills and the confidence I need to interact with people at all levels in the multinational organisations I work with.
My work requires me to travel extensively which involves spending many evenings and weekends away from home. The flexibility and portability of OU Business School study meant that I was able to use this time constructively, connecting to the OU Business School's learning and support resources from anywhere in the world.
After the MBA, I went on to study courses in accounting and entrepreneurship, and am now studying for an MSc in International Finance and Management.
Studying with the OU Business School has consolidated a lot of the knowledge I already had; it is as if it has made my pictures become more complete. The OU Business School courses have helped me to think about my own business from a strategic viewpoint and I’m now in a position to apply all that I've learned to my business.
The Open University, together with international partners, offers its MBA and many other programmes across the globe.
