Master of Business Administration (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.
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.
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.
Integration of knowledge across functional areas is encouraged through three integrative modules: Entrepreneurship, Responsible Business and Global Rules of the Game, and by means of the Entrepreneurship and Strategic Consulting projects.
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.
