The Oxford Executive MBA class is extremely diverse, both in terms of nationalities represented and the gender balance.
The class who began their studies in January 2016 was made up of 37% women, which is higher than many of the other leading business schools in the prestigious Global EMBA Rankings published by the FT for 2015.
Oxford is a passionate proponent of women’s entrepreneurship as a force for change and global economic growth. Reflecting this philosophy, the Saïd Business School invests in a wide range of initiatives to help create a thriving community of women leaders.
Oxford Scholarships for female leaders
Something that has played a key role in Oxford Saïd’s success in recruiting outstanding female leaders to join the Executive MBA programme has been though offering several scholarships. There are two awards for each class for exceptional female candidates, based on the breadth and depth of work experience, as well as past academic/professional qualification performance:
• The Alumni Annual Fund Forté Foundation Fellowships for Women
• The Oxford Executive MBA Scholarship for Women in association with the 30% Club
Why study for the Oxford Executive MBA?
Taught over 21 months through 16 week-long modules, the programme allows you to completely immerse yourself in the learning experience, whilst concurrently being able to continue and thrive in your day-to-day job. More than just a management toolkit, this programme teaches you to think creatively and put innovative new business ideas into practice from the very first module.
Studying at Oxford also provides you with the opportunity to build a world-class global network, both with close relationships developed within your class and through the broader University. The power of the network is something that our participants frequently speak of as alumni.
How to apply
The programme runs starting in January and September each year and you can apply using our online application system. We recommend that you apply as early as possible as we run a rolling admissions process and there will be a waiting list once the class is full.
The final deadlines in order to be considered for the scholarships are Monday 23 May 2016 (for the programme starting in September 2016) and Monday 12 September 2016 for the January programme.
