What we do

The Skoll Centre is an internationally renowned social impact centre, based at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford.

The Skoll Centre brings researchers and practitioners together to generate insights on how to lead, organise, finance, measure, and scale impact.

These insights are then incorporated into learning programmes for entrepreneurial leaders at Oxford and worldwide.


Combining academic research from across the University of Oxford with global expertise from social impact practitioners, the Centre shares best practices for systemic social change. 


The Skoll Scholarship

The scholarship provides funding for social innovators who are interested in undertaking an MBA to enhance and broaden their skills for more effective social change.

In addition to financial support, recipients benefit from being part of the vibrant Skoll Scholar community, which offers opportunities for lifelong learning and connection with other social innovators.

Learning programmes

Over the past twenty years, we have developed transformational learning experiences for students at the University of Oxford and around the world, equipping them with the mindsets and skills needed for catalysing systemic social change.
