Video: The GOTO programme in action

This programme links the most pressing threats faced by the world with corresponding opportunities for innovative organisations and individuals

GOTO (Global Opportunities Threats Oxford) is an action-oriented problem-solving programme for both MBA and EMBA students at Saïd Business School that is geared towards addressing some of the most complex issues that the world faces today. Each year, in the spring, students are divided into small groups and tasked with a different global challenge to explore. They then work with faculty from across the university, as well as external experts and practitioners, to create, debate and drive new business ideas that will help address this challenge. This year the GOTO theme is Climate Action.

Watch the series of new videos that follow two of 2020’s student teams as they navigate through the GOTO Climate Action challenge and work to win the prestigious GOTO trophy. We will be adding new videos as the programme progresses.
