Whether you work in a micro business, a small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) or a large firm, it’s vital to get to grips with new technologies and understand the impact they could have on your operations, sales and long-term success.
With The Digital Economy program from The Open University Business School, you can do just that. You’ll discover how four key business areas are changing in today’s digital economy.
Accessible on desktop, tablet or mobile and delivered in bite-sized chunks, the four online courses in this program provide a flexible way to enhance your business, management and marketing skills, and demonstrate your continuing professional development (CPD).
Holders of FutureLearn Certificates of Achievement for all four Digital Economy courses can earn 15 UK credits towards The Open University Business School’s flexible MBA by passing a linked Open University assessment course (requiring separate OU registration and fee). Find further information about OU registration, the assessment module in this program and your eligibility, as well as our MBA, in the entry requirements. The Open University does not operate in Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria.
