OU Business School in Italy

OU Business School was established by The Open University in 1983 and is now one of the largest and most respected business schools in the world. More than 30.000 managers across 43 countries study with OU Business School every year. All have chosen to accelerate their careers through OU Business School Supported Distance Learning while benefiting from the control this gives over the management of study, work and personal time. This control stems from the fact that you don't come to OU Business School to study: OU Business School comes to you.
At the core of the OU Business School approach is a truly supportive framework. All the courses combine modern technology (such as computer conferencing, CD-ROMs and interactive websites) with tutoring from professionals who possess proven track records in management and education.

In broad terms OU Business School offers three management qualifications: Professional Certificate in Management, Professional Diploma in Management, Master of Business Administration.You can progress from the Professional Certificate in Management through the Professional Diploma in Management, and on to an MBA. If you already have a first degree and want to study for an MBA, you can follow an accelerated route equivalent to the Certificate and Diploma stages.
You can learn more about OU Business School and sample some of the course material at any one of a number of Open Events to be held around Europe during the year. At these, you can meet OU Business School tutors (associate lecturers) and regional staff face-to-face and get the feel of the workbooks, CD-ROMs, software and cassettes that are integral to OU Business School courses.
O'Donnell & Associates, as the OU Business School Marketing representative for Italy, is happy to assist you giving details about these events, to discuss your personal needs and study options and for any other question you might have.

The Professional Diploma in Management develops the functional and general skills needed by more experienced managers who want to advance their careers and extend their abilities to meet the latest developments in business practice. To achieve the Diploma, managers must already have attained the Professional Certificate in Management (or a recognised equivalent qualification).
The Professional Diploma in Management programme invites managers to step back from their immediate situation to look a t widwe issues and to understand something about the performance of the project/team/department in which they work.
The programme is targeted at middle level managers (or those aspiring to a more senior management role) in larger organisation and those with a leadership role in smaller organisation.
It leads to a general management qualification rather than being a route to specialisation in a particular functional area.

There are no short cuts to a good MBA. A Master of Business Administration degree takes time and effort.
The OU Business School MBA programme is very rewarding but also very demanding.
It is designed for practising managers in middle and senior positions. The emphasis is on strategic analysis, interdisciplinary skills and independent judgement. The courses are considerably more demanding than those in the Certificate and Diploma Programmes and are designed to build on extensive management experience.
Some courses can be studied individually as well as being part of the MBA, altough they all assume an understanding of the fundamental principles of management and business strategy.
