The Open University
Proud to be a headline sponsor of MKBAA 2024
The UK has a longstanding skills shortage and The Open University (OU) has a rich heritage of working with organisations in a collaborative manner to address this challenge. The OU offers organisations its vast expertise in research and innovation, flexible, high-quality, supported distance learning, and offers access to diverse and experienced student and alumni talent.
The OU builds long-term relationships with partners, based on a deep understanding of their business objectives and that’s why more than 2,800 organisations work with the University. An impressive 76 of the FTSE100 have used OU programmes to upskill and reskill staff and NHS providers and local authorities across the UK access OU education to develop staff.
The OU’s impact is extended by partnerships with other educational institutions. The University has provided validation services to more than 40 partner institutions worldwide. Beyond teaching, a spirit of openness means the OU makes its extensive expertise accessible through opportunities for research, knowledge exchange, academic partnership and innovation.
