Oxford MBA’s flagship programme powers up for 2019
On 14 January MBA candidates took a short walk from the School to a conference centre situated along one of Oxford’s scenic waterways. Their route took them past a disused power station, which will soon be transformed into the School’s Global Leadership Centre. As they neared their destination, they crossed a bridge opposite a recently built turbine generator, which harvests the water’s energy for use in the surrounding community.
The purpose of their journey? To begin Global Opportunities and Threats: Oxford (GOTO), the Oxford MBA’s flagship programme designed to create a collaborative community that can tackle world scale problems. Each year students are tasked with a different problem to solve and assigned tutors from across the broader university, who aid and assess their work.
In 2019, MBA candidates will explore perhaps the most urgent problem of all: the future of energy.
