Alumni and careers network

Over 94,000 alumni members in 121 countries worldwide and counting!

If you have a postgraduate qualification from The Open University Business School, you automatically belong to our well-connected global alumni community. There is no charge to be a member. All you need to sign in and access the full range of services is your OU Computer Username (OUCU) or your Personal Identifier (PI) number, and your password.

Benefits of being part of the community


Making a difference

Every year we present our highest achieving students and outstanding alumni with achievement awards. Students are recognised for their outstanding achievement in a specific module or qualification. Alumni are recognised for using the learning from their OUBS qualification to make a difference to their organisation, community or society.
