Research strategy

PES courtyard

As a world-class business school embedded in one of the world’s greatest and oldest universities, research is at the very heart of our work at Oxford Saïd.

This is the first-ever research strategy for Saïd Business School. It is based on consultation with members of our research community, the School’s leadership and the School Board.

Our strategy outlines:

  • Our research mission, celebrating our existing strengths
  • How we will continue to move forward by identifying priority development areas for the future
  • The investments we intend to make to ensure that Saïd Business School is one of the best places for academic business research in the world.
