As our School celebrates its first majority female MBA programme intake this year, we are delighted to announce this year’s all-women Laidlaw Scholars.
The Laidlaw Scholarship is intended to encourage extraordinary women with clear leadership potential to enrol onto the Oxford MBA programme when they would not have previously considered applying due to financial constraints. From upskilling teachers in Indonesia on STEM subjects, to making infrastructure projects greener and more sustainable, this year’s ten Laidlaw Scholars represent a broad range of fields from across the world. They are also part of an historic MBA cohort, the first in the School’s history to be 51% female.
We asked our scholars what they were looking forward to about life here at Oxford Saïd and what being a part of the MBA programme cohort, and a Laidlaw Scholar, means to them.
