Ultimately, business schools have to produce powerful ideas, deliver transformative education, and reach out to the broader world. Oxford’s unique history and tradition enable us to do all three. The convening power of the University enables us to bring together leaders to address major topics at the interface of business, government and society.
Individually, our faculty and alumni are at the forefront of their fields and provide intellectual leadership not only for businesses, but also for institutions such as the European Commission, the European Corporate Governance Institute, the US Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Indian Prime Minister's Economic Advisory Council, the UK’s Behavioural Insight Team, and the World Bank. Through these and many other connections, we aspire to be the most influential institution of our kind in the world.
True education is about transformation. Our degree programmes and short executive education programmes seek to transform individuals. Our research produces cutting-edge knowledge and changes the way leaders think and act. Our Executive Education programmes transform organisations as well as individuals, with immediate and powerful impact. Collectively, we aspire to improve the world in which we live. Our focus on trends that will define the future, the organisations that will shape it, and their leaders, enables the School to uphold the centuries-old traditions of Oxford University.
