Saïd’s 1-year MBA program emphasizes experiential learning. Saïd students begin their first of four terms, which each last about three months, by taking all core classes. In their second term, all students complete an entrepreneurship project, for which they prepare a startup business plan and present it to venture capitalists.
Students head back to the classroom for their third term, taking all electives. In the final term, students complete a strategic consulting project, in which they work with nonprofits, startups and corporations all over the world. Oxford has hosted the Silicon Valley Comes to Oxford program for most of the past 15 years. It brings tech executives to campus to host classes, dinners and debates.
