The School is dedicated to developing a new generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs, and conducting research not only into the nature of business, but the connections between business and the wider world.
Saïd Business School blends the best of new and old. A young, vibrant, and innovative business school that’s embedded in an 800 year old world-class university. It’s a place where we study how successful businesses appreciate the rules of the game – written and unwritten, but then we study how they can create new games altogether – through entrepreneurship, innovation, and huge infrastructure programmes. As a part of Oxford, we don’t just talk about how business interacts with the broader world, but we experience it as we engage with Oxford colleagues from many other backgrounds and with the broader business community.
As a major business school, Saïd Business School has capabilities in all of the core aspects of business. For example, you will find world-class education in finance and strategy, as well as an extensive set of activities around entrepreneurship. In addition, through the individual work of the faculty, and in some cases through Centres and specialised degree programs, we provide extraordinary depth in particular areas. For example, the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship organises a large number of activities for students, and hosts the annual Skoll World Forum, where social entrepreneurs from around the world congregate. The Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation is the leading center for the study of business tax. The BT Centre for Major Programme Management, and the affiliated Masters in Major Programme Management degree, provide specialist training in managing huge economy-changing projects. The Private Equity Institute, highly-ranked Masters in Financial Economics programme, and our new Masters of Law and Finance programme (run in conjunction with the law faculty) provide tremendous depth in those areas.
