The Open University MBA is a unique distance learning qualification that builds business skills in the workplace, enabling you to critically assess multiple perspectives and apply new understanding in practice as you study.
Designed for practising senior and middle‑level managers, it emphasises strategic analysis, interdisciplinary skills, creativity and innovation. Its strong international emphasis and global reputation makes it highly attractive to ambitious executives all over the world.
The impact of cultural differences is a theme that runs through and unites all the courses, developed by academic staff of wide international experience.
