The Open University Business School certified by EOCCS

EFMD Global Network EOCCS Certified logo

The Open University Business School’s (OUBS) course Leadership and management in intercultural contexts, is one of the first courses to be certified by EOCCS (Online Course Certification System).

EOCCS is an international online course certification system designed to evaluate the quality of online business and/or management-related courses that either stand-alone or constitute part of a certificate or programme.

EOCCS aims to evaluate the quality of exemplary online business and/or management courses. Firmly embedded in the general philosophy of EFMD accreditations - internationalisation, practical relevance and quality improvement - EOCCS is open to any institution, including higher education, corporate institutions and public agencies.

The Open University Business School is delighted to be amongst the first to receive EOCCS certification for an online course. EOCCS certification is important to us, first, because it recognises the high quality and systematic approach we take to online learning.

It is also important for us because EOCCS represents an important step in increasing awareness of the specific capabilities needed to design, create and support high quality online learning experiences. We believe that EOCCS can be an important contributor to improving engagement with online learning and raising both aspirations and achievement of quality for learning providers.

In addition to OUBS, EOCCS Certification has been awarded to Hult International Business School (including Ashridge) and IE Business School, establishing the community of EOCCS Certified online courses.
