About us

The Centre for Corporate Reputation is an independent research centre within Oxford University’s Saïd Business School. Our work is focused on researching the role of social evaluations in business and society. We recruit early-stage researchers who work with senior faculty within Oxford Saïd, as well as with our global network of leading scholars.


Introduction to the Centre


Our people

The Centre is home to Postdoctoral Research Fellows and doctoral students who work across a number of disciplines from business ethics to political science, using a number of complementary approaches, from network analysis to ethnography.

We are also fortunate to have the support of an outstanding group of International Research Fellows from academic institutions around the world, as well as many distinguished Visiting Fellows from business, the media and other organisations.

Our research


Our research is published in leading academic journals as well as in more practitioner-oriented publications. We have also published a number of books that identify and examine the core elements of social evaluations for both academics and practitioners.


Our case studies complement and inform our academic research, and are used in teaching our MBA elective and executive education programmes. We also make them freely available to interested researchers and organisations.

Our teaching

We teach a course on the school’s MBA, underpinned by academic research and including contributions from leading figures from the business world.

We also work with Executive Education at Oxford Saïd on a number of courses, and run the Corporate Affairs Academy programme.

Our supporters

The Centre’s work would be impossible without generous support from a number of organisations. In particular, we would like to thank Eni, the major global integrated energy company; Intesa Sanpaolo, one of the largest banks in the eurozone; Roland Berger Strategy Consultants; Man GLG; and Santander. We would also like to express our gratitude to our Visiting Fellows, whose expertise and guidance is invaluable to our work.
