Employer sponsorship


Some Oxford Executive MBA students receive full financial sponsorship from their organisations, and many more ask their employers for part sponsorship.

Even if you do not ask for a financial contribution, you will need to come to an agreement over holidays and unpaid leave to suit the programme schedule. 

To help you assess what kind of sponsorship you might need, contact the EMBA Recruitment Team.

The Director’s Scholarship opens up the EMBA to people who may otherwise struggle to participate. It helps ensure that the students you sit beside at Oxford (and message, email and video call when away) are the most talented, diverse and experienced group you could meet.
