An MBA from the Internet - Tips for studying at the Open University Business School (from a Continental European Perspective)

Latest News!!: The OPEN EYE supplement of the daily British newspaper "The Independent" (April 2nd 2002 issue) writes: "German graduate Tillmann Henssler was so enthusiastic about his studies with the Open University Business School that he created a detailed website for OU students based in Germany and continental Europe. Tillman, from Karlsruhe, studied for his OU MBA while living and working in Germany and his website, which is in German and English, is based on his experiences..."
You can read the complete article in Open Eye April News in Brief (German OU website)

The German magazine Handelsblatt Junge Karriere (January 2002 issue, page 81) writes about this Web page:
"OUBS authentisch
Seine Erfahrungen als MBA-Student der britischen Fernuniversität Open University Business School (OUBS) hat Tillmann Henssler ins Netz gestellt. Hier findet sich - auf Deutsch - viel Nützliches über den sehr renommierten MBA-Studiengang."

The student magazine AUDIMAX contains in its February/March 2002 issue (pages 8 and 9) a very interesting article with the title " - E-Learning ist in an deutschen Unis. Löst die Cyberuniversity das klassische Präsenzstudium ab?". This article mentions my my experiences with distance-learning at the Open University Business School.

Many people have asked me about my experiences with the MBA course (from 1997-2000) at the Open University. So I had the idea to write about them from a Continental European German perspective. In the following sections you will find some tips and infos, that I personally consider to be useful. At that time I found it very difficult to find a suitable MBA Programme for myself in view of the masses of available information including glossy colour brochures and press releases about business schools.




The Open University is one of the biggest providers of MBA-Programmes in Germany - there are currently over 500 students from this country enrolled in the programme.

The Distance-Learning MBA at the Open University is particularily interesting for the following reasons:

1. International comparability and transparency of Anglo American university degrees - Bachelor and Master- and their fast growing acceptance are an alternative to the "Diplom". The Open University MBA has been conceived for working persons (in the middle or higher management). If you have already finished a first degree, you can complete the MBA within three years.

2. The excellent reputation worldwide of the Master of Business Administration degree in particular among large enterprises. An Open University MBA requirement is several years of professional experience and the programme is internationally oriented. People from all regions of the world study at the Open University.

3. In the Internet age, virtual courses and degrees are becoming ever more popular. Teaching materials can be recalled in the Internet or online and completed and updated. By means of the conferencing software "First Class" one can participate actively in discussion forums, with associate lecturers, professors and other students about the many different aspects of the management and course concepts. You can also complete administrative matters online (registering for courses, choosing residential schools, etc.). Compared with conventional study at universities where lectures take place at fixed times, with the Internet you can study the course contents at your own rate and time. You don't have to study at one fixed place; you can study the material at home, while commuting or on holiday. Besides that you can go back to the online conferences: there the discussions are written down and accessible for all students, thus the learning effect is much larger than with conventional courses.


Requirements for studying the OUBS MBA
There are two ways to complete the Open University MBA.

Fast-Track Graduate entry
If you are aged 27 or over, with significant management experience and a UK Honour degree or equivalent academic or professional qualification, you are eligible for the fast track to an MBA. The Fast-Track route takes three years and begins with the (B800) Foundations in Senior Management (Stage I) Course

Open Access entry
If you do not meet the the fast track entry criteria, you may enter the MBA Programme by successfully completing both the Certificate and Diploma Programmes. Achievement of the Diploma counts as Stage One of the MBA. The Open-Access route takes four years to complete. The course Professional Certificate in Management (Stage I) takes one year and is organised around:

  • four, three-month modules covering key managerial functions
  • An interactive management development module, practicing key personal and interpersonal skills normally studied at a 2-day residential school.
  • regular assignments (submitted and graded by your tutor) and an examination at the end of each module

  • The Professional Diploma in Management (Stage I) develops the functional and general skills needed by 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 recognized equivalent qualification).

    The Diploma is an integrated programme of management learning organised around:

    • two courses with the core theme of managing performance and change, the forst of which lasts nine months and the second of which lasts three months
    • a management interaction component within the nine month course developing and deepening strategic understanding of the management role, which can either be studied at a three-day residential school or online
    • assignments on both courses and an exam attached the first course
    If you have completed the Certificate and Diploma (Stage I), you can continue with Stage II of the MBA Programme, which takes two years to complete. Stage II consists of the 6-month compulsory course (B820) Strategy and three elective courses. Students can select from the following elective courses:
    (B821) Financial Strategy
    (B822) Creativity, Innovation and Change
    (B823) Knowledge Management
    (B824) Human Resource Strategy
    (B825) Marketing in a Complex World
    (B826) The Management Research Project
    (B890) International Enterprise

    All elective courses (with exception of the Management Research Project, which takes one year) are 6-month courses. The ratio of compulsory to elective courses is 1:1.


    The Open University in Germany
    For questions or further information concerning study you can contact the Representatives of the Open University.
    Alternatively you can also fill in the Prospectus Request Form on the Open University Web Site.

    Students receive course guidance and support from Associate Lecturers.

The Course Books are compulsory literature.

    With the Course reader and the Supplementary Books you can be selective about which articles you read and sometimes you can go through the course without watching the video programs or listening to the audio cassettes.

    Apart from that you become acquainted with that many nice study colleagues and you also have a lot of fun. The Residential Schools for the MBA courses take place in the United Kingdom, Ireland or Holland ; I attended residential Schools in Windsor (Beaumont), Dublin (Trinity College) and Leiden (Leeuwenhorst). Board and accommodation are included in the course fees. You have make your own travel arrangements and pay for your travel expenses.

  • Examination arrangement

  • this letter including the handbook will reach you halfway through the course and confirms the place and date of your examination. The handbook should be read. As Karlsruher I had to take the examinations in Frankfurt (University) or Stuttgart (Berufsakademie)


    What you should think about before making your course reservation

    Time management
    the biggest problem for a distance-learning student is the lack of time, the combination of full-time job and MBA - it is allegedly also the most common cause why people do not finish the course. For the MBA you must set aside at least 12-15 hours study-time weekly. It is therefore very useful to have a strategy for finding this required time; e.g. in that you could spend less time on your hobbies, or at work, that you cut down on the number of overtime hours that you work.

    the costs for study are substantial. Beside the course fees which roughly amount to 35,000,- DM (3 years study "Fast-Track") you incur costs from travels to seminars, Residential Schools, purchasing a PC, modem costs & telephone costs, various study utensils etc. In Germany, all the costs you incur from your professional development you should make a claim on your tax returns form as Werbungskosten. There are different possibilities to reduce your study costs:

    1. Sponsorship - at present over 4000 companies sponsor their employees on Open University courses. Therefore it may be woth talking to your employer about sponsorship.

    2. Co-operations and Partnerprogrammes:
    The Verband der Metallindustrie Baden-Württemberg (VMI) last year started the education- and qualification initiative "Start 2000". The initiative consists of six educational provisions, among other things:
    Internationalen Aufbaustudiengang der Berufsakademie Stuttgart
    this course has been designed for very successful graduates of the Berufsakademien. The Berufsakademie Stuttgart and the internationally accredited Open University Business School (OUBS) and VMI member firms that have subsidiaries abroad. In this way the companies receive leaders for international projects.

    3. Student loan - apart from the possibility to pay the course fees prior to the beginning of course, you can finance your course fees through a loan from the Open University. The open University offers cheap conditions (interest rate 8,5% per annum, status 1999) through the Open University Student Budget Account (OUSBA). For example, you can pay for a 6 month course in five monthly installments.

    4. Tip for your tax returns:
    If you are neither sponsored by your employer nor participating in a partner programme as mentioned above. If you say that your postgraduate degree is a consequential response to the ever increasing demands of skills of employees that industry requires of them, which in the future will guarantee and increase the income from your job.
    With this argument I had my study expenditures accepted by the Karlsruhe tax office as Werbungskosten abzugsfähige Fortbildungskosten. In my case there was a lot of correspondence with the tax office, which was finally resolved by a confirmation letter by my employer that the tax office Karlsruhe required, which stated that the purpose of the course enabled me to enhance existing and learn new skills and competences for my job. After all, you have to continously develop your skills in order to keep up with the demands of your job.
    This applies also to many jobs in various industry sectors.

    (detailed info about this tax tip you will find in the book "1000 ganz legale Steuertricks" from Franz Konz)

    English language skills
    You have to decide for yourself whether your English is sufficiently good enough before you start an Open University course. Compared to some other business schools GMAT or TOEFL are not a precondition. Ideally you should read through sample course materials and check whether your English is good enough to understand the contents.

    (Comment 2018: In today's digital age you can easily access study materials online. On the digital learning platform Openlearn, which was founded by the Open University in year 2006, you can access and read free course materials from a wide range of subjects. Click here for a sample.

    If you prefer so-called Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS),you can participate in one of the online course on Futurelearn, which was founded by the Open University in the year 2012. Click here for a sample.)


    The Credit Point system:

    to complete the MBA degree you need to have collected 180 Credit Points. The course can be completed within 3 years, even though you may be working full-time
    The subjects (B800) Foundations in Senior Management and (B820) Strategy are compulsory subjects.
    In addition you have to take three electives, such as for example, B822 Creativity, Innovation and Change and (B821) Financial Strategy, and (B890) International Enterprise.

    Course / Modul module duration points
    B800 Foundations in Senior Management 12 Months (11/97 - 10/98) 60 Credit Points
    B820 Strategy 6 Months (11/98 - 04/99) 30 Credit Points
    B822 Creativity, Change and Innovation 6 Months (05/99 - 10/99) 30 Credit Points
    B821 Financial Strategy 6 Months (11/99 - 04/00) 30 Credit Points
    B890 International Enterprise 6 Months (05/00 - 10/00) 30 Credit Points
