Our world is unprecedentedly complex, connected, and fragile. Our trust in institutions and each other is under intense pressure. Our energy, food and water security, our aging populations, the explosion in stored data -- these all require managers and leaders of unusual ability, sophistication and integrity. This environment needs individuals who can inspire and influence a wide range of stakeholders, and who can demonstrate responsible leadership in the face of complex and often forgotten conflicting interests and our MBA programme will equip you with these skills.
Saïd Business School has just completed a major redesign of our flagship programme, the one year MBA programme. The new Oxford MBA is now an even more powerful, rigorous and innovative programme. At the heart of the redesigned MBA are three cross cutting themes that students will immerse into and relate to the world-scale challenges shaping today's business environment; global rules of the game; entrepreneurship and responsible leadership.
The work of historians, philosophers, and classicists, and the study of literature and artefacts from many countries and traditions, can shed light on challenges that concern the business environment. The study, engagement and performance of the arts can also develop perspectives on communication valuable to many contexts.
The School invites a number of Oxford's leading humanities scholars to share their knowledge and experience in Engaging with the Humanities. This lunchtime series is open to all members of the business school, university and wider community.
Executive Education at Saïd Business School has grown fourfold in the last five years. Our work with multinational companies and governments from as far afield as Japan in the east to the USA in the west seeks to bring about transformation through education.
These sessions recorded at the Saïd Business School Symposium present a sample of the diverse approaches this work involves.
