We are a world-class business school community. Embedded in a world-class university. Tackling world-scale problems. Oxford University's Said Business School is a place where we study how successful businesses appreciate the rules of the game - written and unwritten, but then we study how they can create new games altogether - through entrepreneurship, innovation, and huge infrastructure programmes. As a part of Oxford, we don’t just talk about how business interacts with the broader world, but we experience it as we engage with Oxford colleagues from many other backgrounds and with the broader business community.
