The global marketplace is also more challenging than ever before. Businesses need executives who are agile, resilient and can

work across boundaries; who can understand the theory of management and business and apply this in the real world; and who can spot and react to new threats and opportunities.



These are the executives who will drive growth and success in the future. Are you one of them and do you want to become an even better manager?



The internationally-recognised Open University MBA qualification is designed for practicing managers aspiring to higher positions.

To create better managers and achieve this level of capability, the programme concentrates on strategic analysis, interdisciplinary skills, intellectual stimulation and independent judgment. It includes human resource management, organisational behaviour, accounting and finance, marketing and entrepreneurship.

You will learn to analyse, synthesise and evaluate a wide range of situations within the broad framework of organisations, their external context and internal management.

You will look at economic, environmental, social and technological change issues, corporate governance, markets and customers, managing resources, financing organisations, management and development of people, developing information technologies for application in business and management within a global knowledge-based economy, and development of appropriate business policies and strategies within a changing context to meet stakeholder interests.
