Who's it for?

We’ve designed a FutureMBA course for two age groups: 16 to 17-year-olds and those aged 18 and above. Perhaps you’re considering a career in consultancy, finance or NGO work. Perhaps you see yourself completing a full MBA one day. Perhaps you’re simply keen for new perspectives on (and exposure to) the future of business. Or maybe it’s all three.

What you'll learn

Our FutureMBA course is inspired by Giselle Weybrecht’s research in The Future MBA. As well as learning essential theory, from finance to strategy, you’ll explore how sustainability is shaping the future of business – and what that means for you.

How you'll learn

You’ll pick up core subject knowledge through interactive classes, and you’ll get to apply your knowledge to real businesses through case-study work. You can hope to take part in role plays which could help you bring your learning to life, and thanks to an interactive workshops you’ll get to develop your own business idea and pitch it to industry experts and investors. There’s also time for guided personal reflection, encouraging you to understand your own strengths and limitations, as well as one-on-one coaching to help you work out what you want from your future (and how to get it).

Why Oxford?

Some of history’s finest minds have been inspired by Oxford. Oxford is also home to the UK’s most exciting innovation and entrepreneurship, with a powerful network of start-up labs, tech hubs and science parks. You’ll get to see where game-changing ideas happen and work with the people responsible for them. And we’ll make sure you get plenty of time to explore Oxford’s culture and entertainment hotspots. (There’s quite a few of those, too.)

Where you'll stay and who you'll meet

Your secure, comfortable accommodation – private single rooms occupied by Oxford University students during term time. You’ll have a dedicated pastoral team and top-tier alumni to make sure you’re safe, happy and thriving. They may even pitch in the occasional idea (or local recommendation) if you ask nicely. And, most importantly, you’ll be surrounded by a diverse group of fellow students from all around the world. It’s a precious opportunity to forge lasting connections with other bright sparks. Who knows? Some could end up being useful contacts. Others could be best friends.

What you'll do (when you're not learning)

As well as free time for exploring Oxford you’ll enjoy a programme of social events and excursions, to help you get the most from the course and make memories with your new friends. In the evening we might take a break with mindfulness, get competitive with a sports tournament in the park, or embarrass ourselves on the dancefloor. There’s also the chance to sample the delights of Oxford from the water with a traditional boat tour, as well as a day trip to London to take in all the sights. And at the end of the course we’ll lay on a college banquet, awards ceremony and farewell party.
