About the Oxford 1+1 MBA programme

The challenge

We live in momentous times. Our society as a whole has never been more prosperous. Yet despite the last century’s many impressive and far-reaching advances, we still face many challenges such as poverty, inequality, economic and social instability, over population and climate change. These challenges call for dynamic, visionary and highly-capable leaders, committed to addressing complex challenges through intelligent, well-developed management skills.

The solution

The most effective leaders are able to use a broad understanding of management to translate specific domain knowledge into practical and innovative outcomes.

Here, at Saïd Business School, future leaders are studying how successful organisations appreciate the written and unwritten rules of the game, and how they create new rules through innovation, entrepreneurship and social enterprise.

1+1 MBA = depth + breadth

The Oxford 1+1 MBA is a unique, two-year postgraduate experience that combines the depth of a specialised, one-year Master’s degree with the breadth of a top-ranking, one-year MBA.

Through the 1+1 programme, we are partnering with nine other University of Oxford departments to link a diverse selection of MSc programmes to our MBA. As a result, graduates embark from Oxford armed with the skills to translate specific domain knowledge into sustainable and scalable solutions.

Benefits of the Oxford 1+1 MBA programme:

  • Training across disciplines, drawing upon the resources of a world-class university
  • Development of two complementary networks of peers and alumni through Oxford's collegiate experience
  • Upon completion you will be identified by employers as having detailed subject knowledge, combined with highly developed delivery skills.

Interested candidates should complete the online Oxford 1+1 MBA application, selecting 1+1 under the programme of interest.

Candidates must also apply to the MSc of your choice (according to departmental application deadlines)
