75 per cent of FTSE 100 companies choose to sponsor staff on our training courses because no other institution can deliver quality distance training to the scale and international reach of The Open University. Global organisations like the Foreign Commonwealth Office and Reuters turned to the OU to train their very mobile, specialist and global staff.

Quality and value
We´re world leaders in developing innovative, top quality teaching methods and learning materials. Our competitive fees cover everything your employees require for a course, from books and software to assessment and exams. There are no hidden extras to upset your budgets. Our approach is very efficient for your organisation as having staff away from the office, not being productive for your business can be costly.
Range of courses and qualifications
Employees can study a single course to develop specific practice and skills, or work towards a qualification, choosing specialist options to suit organisational needs and their interests.
Open to everyone
With few exceptions, your staff won´t need any formal qualifications to take our courses and there are open, flexible entry routes for our higher-level qualifications. In addition, previous work experience or qualifications from other Higher Education institutions may count as credit towards entry.
Global Support for Business School Studies
Together with international partners, we offer our acclaimed MBA and other high quality training at the same level of excellence across the globe. Whether your workforce is scattered across the country or around the world, employees can still access and benefit from many Open University and Open University Business School global training courses in exactly the same way as staff here in the UK. It’s one of the many advantages of our unique style of distance learning.
