Oxford MBA


At Saïd Business School we welcome applicants from the armed forces for our one year full-time MBA programme. The experience gained during active military service, when combined with a good bachelors degree and a strong GMAT score contribute to the criteria required for a successful application.

Whether you are considering leaving active duty and looking to transition into a civilian profession or you are a veteran seeking to further your commercial career, an MBA from Oxford will complement the leadership and teambuilding qualities you acquired in the military with the analytical skills and business fundamentals needed to succeed in a business environment.

Why study an MBA?

  • You will learn to translate your existing skills and experience into the skills required as a business leader
  • You will gain essential business skills and experience to complement the qualities you have acquired in the military
  • A combination of military experience and an MBA is very compelling to employers
  • Rising to a senior level in the armed forces is likely to mean that you are more than familiar with a formal education setting, for example Sandhurst or West Point

Why Oxford?

  • You can tailor the programme to suit your skills, interests and career aspirations
  • You will be offered an opportunity to complete an internship at the end of the programme, providing valuable commercial experience
  • Our academic programme is supported by a Talent Development initiative designed to enhance your personal and professional development and skills 
  • Our careers service and Talent Development initiative will support your successful career transition 
  • You will be part of a state-of-the-art, modern business school embedded within a world-class university 
  • You wil join a powerful international alumni network

We value the wealth of experience and skills that members of the armed forces and veterans bring to our programme and to our community. Start your application process today.
