Class profile

The Oxford Executive MBA programme is one of the most globally diverse in the world.

FacuIty, students and alumni from all over the world open participants up to views, experiences and new ways of thinking, enriching every module. Internationalism is fundamental to our programme, not only in the teaching, faculty, and research but also the class dynamics.

You will gain access to an international network of peers, alumni, and faculty. The closest enduring connections you forge will be with your immediate cohort, as you study, discuss and learn together in the classroom, on projects and on international trips.

Our participants also enjoy the vast network and opportunities available across the University of Oxford. The convening power of the University brings heads of state, CEOs, Nobel laureates, brilliant young scholars, social entrepreneurs and senior policy makers, inventors and corporate recruiters, amongst others to Oxford.

A unique benefit is the ability to join the Oxford Business Alumni Network, the official global business alumni network of Saïd Business School.
