Amplify teaching


Degree Programmes

Responsible business education is central to the School’s approach to developing global leaders; seeking to attract and educate students with a passion for enacting change, we provide a wealth of opportunities for students to fully engage with some of the most pressing societal and organisational issues of our time. We set the pace with climate leadership and transformational change curricula in our degree programmes.

Our MBA programme exemplifies the systematic incorporation of responsible business across our teaching provision. 51% of our core teaching (55.3 of 107.5 hours), contains ESG-related content. We were delighted to see our dedicated work in this space recognised in 2024 when the Financial Times recognised us as one of five winners in their Responsible Business Education Awards

Capitalism in Debate

The role of business in society is changing. While we do not know what the future of capitalism might be, we can see ways in which it can and must change, and we have an obligation to our students, and to the wider world, to equip Oxford MBAs as best as we can for the challenges of the 21st century. One of the three key themes of the Capitalism in Debate MBA course is sustainability and in the delivery of this module we lean towards management practice, asking what is demanded of a transition from business models of the past to the sustainable business of the future.

Global Opportunities and Threats: Oxford

Our MBA and Executive MBA students can participate in GOTO: an action-oriented problem-solving community geared towards addressing some of the most complex interconnected issues that the world faces.
