Student testimonial

Executives lecture theatre

'When thinking of an EMBA, Oxford was the only place I considered. It provided me with an engaging and dynamic classroom experience, and the depth and breadth of teaching methods from the faculty was extraordinary. The programme is incredibly global and diverse, from the mix of fellow students to the way we were able to immerse ourselves in different industries and sectors on the international modules.'
