How the OU can help
Open University business and management courses are highly regarded by employers, both for the quality of teaching and for the ambition, drive, time management and organisational skills that characterise our students. We offer business, management and leadership courses through our award-winning Business School* and our Faculty of Health & Social Care, taking education right to the heart of leadership and management practice in private, public and voluntary organisations worldwide.
Our courses are designed to prepare you to meet the management and leadership challenges faced by today’s dynamic, socially and environmentally responsible organisations, and to develop essential skills such as effective communication and presentation; numeracy and IT; critical thinking; the ability to research and evaluate information; and developing a reasoned argument.
An OU management qualification will also develop your understanding of the way organisations operate, and how they develop winning strategies, make decisions and manage risk – and you’ll gain valuable insight into key business functions such as finance, human resources, ICT, and sales and marketing.
*Our triple accredited Business School† is in the top 1% worldwide, and the only business school to specialise in flexible learning.
† AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS
