Said Business School, University of Oxford
Saïd Business School at Oxford University blends the best of new and old. We are a young, vibrant, and innovative business school deeply embedded in an 800 year old world-class university.
We educate people for successful business careers, and as a community seek to use our business acumen and global network to address long-horizon phenomena like demographic change, new technologies and natural resource scarcity. We deliver cutting-edge education and ground-breaking research that transforms individuals, organisations, business practice, and society. We seek to be a world-class business school community, embedded in a world-class university, tackling world-scale problems.
One of the most striking things about the world today is how interconnected it is. Business, politics, technological change and society do not exist in isolation but are perpetually influencing each other. To succeed in business you need more than business skills and the Oxford MBA bursts the business bubble. Our programme draws on expertise from different disciplines in other parts of the University. In our elective courses and a new range of integration modules, we introduce approaches to thinking about the human condition and leadership and the broader business environment from a range of perspectives, drawing from philosophy, literature, politics, law, sociology and the sciences. Global Opportunities and Threats: Oxford (GOTO ) is also an inherently interdisciplinary endeavour, providing its audience with expertise perspectives on world-scale challenges such as big data, demographic change and water scarcity.
One year MBA
Our MBA provides a solid grounding in the major business disciplines and core business skills. Our faculty are world-class experts in their fields and they develop courses based on up-to-date best practice and the latest academic research.
Underpinning a rigorous programme of courses is an extended and strengthened talent development programme. All of our MBA students will be offered professional coaching and a suite of optional courses to help define your interpersonal, communication and team work skills.
Our MBA programme is built around three cross-cutting themes that relate to the world-scale challenges shaping today’s business environment: global rules of the game, entrepreneurship and responsible business. You will focus on these themes specifically in three taught integrative modules, but you will also see how they resonate within other parts of the course, and indeed with guest speakers, non-course events and student-run conferences and competitions.
