About our research

At the heart of Saïd Business School is an emphasis on high-quality, academic research. We aim to be a world leader in research, generating powerful ideas which address major topics at the interface of public policies, economic prosperity, international development and social equality.

Research is organised into different subject areas, which reflect the expertise of our individual faculty members. Our world-class faculty, of around 60 members, can also be involved with one or more of our research centres. Many of our faculty are leaders in their field, and frequently engage with diverse groups and global organisations, while also supporting students and future scholars. Research projects, here at Saïd Business School, are strategically important to develop a better understanding of the role of business in economies and societies.

We have an extensive network with leading universities, public agencies, governments and businesses – across the UK and internationally. We recruit researchers of the highest distinction and potential, and attract the very best doctoral students.

'A powerful business school produces powerful ideas, and being an integral part of Oxford, we think expansively'
