MBA scholar profiles

The MBA class of 2017-18 includes a diverse community of scholars who have received recognition and funding from a variety of scholarship programmes.

Our scholars not only receive funding to assist with the cost of the MBA programme, but also membership of a strong and diverse scholar community. They have access to a range of exciting and valuable activities and opportunities such as invitation to scholar and donor events and performing the role of ambassador for the School.

The MBA scholar profiles give a brief overview of our scholars’ achievements to date and how they hope the MBA programme will shape their future.


‘Education is one of the most powerful ways to transform individuals and societies. In these times, it is ever more important to ensure that our Oxford Saïd community maintains its high standards and values, is a model for diversity, and has all parts of the globe adequately represented. Our generous donors, through the provision of the many scholarships offered to our students, not only enhance the lives of the awardees, but the life of the entire School. We are grateful to our devoted friends.’

Dean Peter Tufano
