The Open University

www.open.ac.uk

The Open University (OU) is the UK's largest university and the world's first successful distance learning university, established 40 years ago. It is a state funded, not-for-profit university whose mission is to make a difference around the globe.

The Open University Business School is the world’s largest MBA provider with triple accreditation (AACSB, EQUIS, AMBA).

Directly and through our partners, we have over 250,000 students. 20,000 live outside the UK, studying more than 450 different modules.

Our modern style of distance learning is very supportive, flexible and aware of the needs of both the individual and the employer. All modules are taught in English. Our distance learning courses range from short online modules all the way through to the MBA and other master degrees.

The vast majority of our students are employed, so they are earning while they are learning. More than 50,000 students are sponsored by their employers, mainly because work-based modules ensure relevance to their own business and distance learning adapts to work and life flows.

Wherever you are in the world, you may be able to study directly with the OU or through one of our educational partners.
