University of Oxford MBA

A one year top-ranked MBA course comprising an intensive series of stimulating lectures, energetic seminars and small group work, which can take students anywhere in the world.

Helping you tackle world-scale problems, Oxford’s MBA is a one-year programme for a complex, fragile and increasingly connected world.

Our energy, food and water security, our aging populations, the explosion in stored data – these challenges all require managers and leaders of unusual ability, sophistication and integrity. An MBA has never been more necessary. At Oxford, the full-time MBA programme will equip you to think logically, laterally and independently in a single year of intensive, immersive, and challenging experiences.

To succeed in business, you need more than just business skills. The Oxford MBA bursts the business school bubble by being fully embedded in a world-class University. Thanks to your affiliation to a college, you will come across a wide variety of individuals from non-business backgrounds and participate in a lively intellectual community.

Community

The Saïd Business School offers a challenging and thought-provoking degree through an engaged community of faculty. As part of this full-time programme you will complete the GOTO (Global Opportunities & Threats Oxford) course, a school-wide community of learning to which MBA students, Executive MBA participants, alumni and faculty are invited to participate in a process of critical engagement with a fundamental and emerging global theme.

Assessment

The assessment regime is a flexible combination of final examinations, group and individual assignments, and practical work, including classroom participation assessment. Teachers are encouraged to tailor assessment methods to most effectively achieve desired learning outcomes. Assessment may be performed during and at the end of each course. If you fail to achieve the required standard you have an opportunity to retake or resubmit the assessments the following term.

Integration of knowledge across functional areas is encouraged through the integrative nature of the Entrepreneurship Project and the Strategic Consulting Project.

You will be required to make regular presentations to teachers, examiners, and business practitioners, and, in some courses, these will be a required part of the assessment.

Graduate destinations

Careers Service

Whether you want to get a top job in banking, consulting or industry, become an entrepreneur, or pursue a career in academia, the school’s careers service can help you achieve your goals.

The careers service provides interview training, helps you to develop your networking skills, assists you in producing excellent CVs and ensures you are prepared for anything the job market can throw at you.

You will also have access to a select group of sector consultants who have experience of working for leading firms across a broad range of sectors including management consulting, finance, high tech, new ventures, media and communications, and diversified industry.
