About the programme

Explore the mindset and motivations that contribute to entrepreneurial success.

From identifying a market opportunity, to developing a business model, to learning how to launch and pitch your venture, this programme is designed to help you nurture the practical skills needed to become a successful entrepreneur in any business context.

Whether you’re yet to identify a business opportunity, or seeking to refine an existing idea, you'll explore the challenges and considerations faced during the venture creation process, and in turn understand how to share your entrepreneurial vision with external stakeholders.

Delivered in partnership with online learning provider, GetSmarter, you will be part of a community learning together through a dedicated Online Campus.

The thinking behind the programme

This programme is derived from the world-leading research and ongoing emerging initiatives of the Entrepreneurship Centre based at Oxford Saïd. It sits within a vibrant ecosystem of innovation and entrepreneurship at the business school and wider university, and is showcased by the annual Oxford Saïd Entrepreneurship Forum

By combining the fertile environment of Oxford, with the extensive array of guest contributors taken from industries across the globe, participants become immersed in a truly unique learning experience.

You'll gain access to a fundamental entrepreneurship framework, and utilise the Gallup Builder Profile 10 as part of your self-assessment, which will guide your development alongside cutting edge research and insights from faculty and experts. 

Meet your Programme Director

The programme is led by Professor Thomas Hellmann, and is guided by prominent industry thought-leaders, who will share their experience and in-depth subject knowledge with you throughout the programme.
