MBA Refresher: Creative Management Residential - What makes better "better"?

Rekindle your passion for creativity through this refresher, based on the newly written MBA elective Sustainable Creative Management (BB842), by joining us for a two-day residential event in Windsor, UK. The event will focus on creative thinking, communicating in an international context, contradictions in creativity and culture and much more. This event is exclusive to Open University MBA alumni.

Lunch and evening gala dinner (including an after dinner inspirational guest speaker) are included. Hotel accommodation is optional. 

We will be running an MBA Refresher masterclass with numerous creative workshops throughout the day. The learnings are based on book two of the Creative Management module, "What Makes Better ‘Better’?"
