Our community

We are a diverse and global community of academics, researchers, students, entrepreneurs, executives and alumni, working together to help to transform the global business landscape.

Our faculty

Tim Jenkinson in action

Drawn from around the world to Oxford, our faculty produce outstanding and important research, both individually and as part of collaborative teams.

Our faculty’s work is influential, leading to changes in both business practice and public policy. We have expertise in all major areas, including finance, strategy, leadership, digital marketing, entrepreneurship, social innovation and entrepreneurship, business purpose, the management of large-scale infrastructure programmes and much more. 

Our 80+ faculty members bring diverse disciplinary backgrounds and cultural understandings to our classrooms, and a combination of academic and management oriented faculty complement one another to advance the thinking of young and experienced leaders.

Our students

MBAT winners

Our students are exceptionally talented and come from across the globe to study at Oxford.

At Oxford, everyone is a minority, with no nationality dominating in almost all of our programmes. Our students are excellent on all dimensions, from the classroom and beyond. Our students have many opportunities to compete against other schools in academic, sporting and other competitions – and have demonstrated their sportsmanship and Oxford spirit. For example, our MBAs won the prestigious MBAT tournament for three years running. 

We work hard and play hard, but act with respect and grace.

Our alumni

As an Oxonian for life, School degree programme alumni also become members of the wider Oxford alumni community of more than 300,000.

Our global community

We encourage an open and multidisciplinary approach. First and foremost, we seek to forge the closest connections with our counterparts throughout the University of Oxford, including through our degree programmes, joint research, the Oxford Foundry, the Seed Fund and more.

We also have strong links to business through our work in Executive Education, our research, our support of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme, as well as through student internships and projects. We connect with other academic institutions through our membership in the Global Network for Advanced Management, as well as through jointly offered programmes with schools including Harvard Business School, Guanghua School of Business at Peking University, HEC and others.

Women at Oxford Saïd

Inspiring Women at Oxford Saïd

Creating a climate of change

Gender equality in both the workforce and education is crucial for ensuring future success. We are working to increase female representation across our programmes and faculty while delivering inclusive programme and careers content to develop those women who come through our doors.

To celebrate International Women’s Day, a series of events to inspire women and create a climate for change in the world of business will be held at Oxford Saïd, including an online taster module of our Women Transforming Leadership programme.

Africa & Oxford Saïd

OBFA attendees

We advocate for greater levels of investment into talent from across Africa.

We are leading the way in supporting and recruiting students from Africa. On average, only 2% of full-time MBA students in international programmes are from Africa. A pledge was made by Dean, Professor Peter Tufano at the 2014 World Economic Forum on Africa to have 10% of our MBA students from the African continent by 2017. Since the 2016 intake, we are proud to have had over 11% of the last 3 MBA intakes hailing from the continent.
