New Year. New career. You have the opportunity to change your career path.
If you want to make a difference and achieve your ambitions, here are four simple steps to registering for an Open University MBA …
1. First Contact Point
This will provide you with the central contact points for advice and enrolment.
2. Adjust the Curriculum to Suit your Needs
The MBA course is designed as an integrated programme, and balances your learning time between compulsory elements and optional modules. This enables you to adjust the curriculum to suit your needs. You will need to have some experiential knowledge at a managerial level and/or of decision-making, so that you have a practical business base on which to build your MBA learning.
3. Plan Your Studies
All entrants to the MBA are required to have a minimum of three years’ experience in a managerial, professional or technical role. Usually this means that you are at least 25 years old as it is unusual (but not impossible) to be able to satisfy the ‘experience’ requirement under this age. Depending on your previous qualifications, there are a variety of routes into the MBA.
4. How to Register
If you want to study for The Open University MBA, read the description and check you meet any specific requirements. Then select your first study module you wish to study first and ensure it is suitable for you before following the registration procedure for that module. There are flexible payment plans available and you can choose one which suits you best.
