Learning

Outline

Take the steps you need to take your business idea to the next level with our strategic Business and Entrepreneurship course. You’ll learn how strategy differs from planning and how to analyse and critique your ideas for the most successful results.

This course includes developing a business model, pitching it, determining hypotheses and experiments to validate your key assumptions, developing a minimum viable product and action plan. Through taught sessions, career development workshops and lectures from eminent keynote speakers, you’ll experience an authentic Oxbridge education, the perfect preparation for a successful career in business.

Teaching methodology

Learn the Oxford way with tutorial style teaching. Your expert tutor will foster self-directed learning and critical thinking through interactive seminars in small groups (no bigger than 8). During your course, you will complete two pieces of independent work (essays or problem sheets), which your tutor will then evaluate in either a 1:1 or 2:1 tutorial. Tutorials will provide you with the opportunity to discuss your work and feedback with your tutor and learn new perspectives from your classmates. On completion of the course, you’ll receive a certificate and letter of recommendation from your tutor.

The Experience

You’ll have time to explore Oxford for yourself, as well as forging new friendships for the future, and there’s an action-packed programme of social activities, field trips and excursions to help bring your learning to life. We might even head to London for the day.

You’re not a tourist, so we won’t treat you like one. Instead we’ll help you uncover genuine local treasures and show you what life here is really like, from the inside.
