General awareness and availability of Open educational resources (OER) have increased in recent years. Some institutions have already started incorporating OER in their strategies. However, compared to other educational fields, OER in Management and Business education have shown rather slow growth. This article discusses the incentives and barriers for the use of OER in Management and Business education. It reviews some useful accomplishments in the field, presents recommendations from various stakeholders and introduces the OpenScout initiative aimed at gathering OER and related tools for Management education.
This publication together with the workshop held at EDiNEB 2012 disseminates the concept of OER in general and the application of OpenScout in particular to the Business and Management education domain.
