In the second part of the interview with Mark O’Brien, we find out why Oxford MBA is leading the trend in enabling candidates to pursue Entrepreneurship. We also learned how the MBA program nurtures Social Impact as a lifelong value.
From the 300+ size of the latest class, 11% are starting their Business. That is an incredible record. How does Oxford MBA encourage Entrepreneurship?
Oxford does have a strong cohort of entrepreneurs, both joining the programme and those switching to entrepreneurship after graduation. In addition to the integrative module on entrepreneurship, all students undertake an Entrepreneurship Project and develop a complete business plan which is presented to a panel of invited venture capitalists and other practitioners. Whether the student already runs a business, or they are considering making a move into entrepreneurship, this is a great chance to develop new products or business models in a safe environment.
We also offer an optional co-curricular course called VIEW (Venture Idea Generation Workshop).

In the first part of the interview with Mark O’Brien - the Associate Director of MBA Recruitment at the University of Oxford, Saïd Business School, we discuss the biggest misconception about Oxford MBA, the teaching tools at the MBA program, the unique integrative module and how Oxford MBA students can customize their curriculum.
What is the biggest misconception about Oxford MBA?
We aim to be a world-class business school community, tackling world-scale problems. Many people assume that our vision is fulfilled purely through our graduates who go on to work in the social impact space, but it is just as important that the majority of our community who are working in the more traditional MBA sectors believe in the School’s mission and play their part in tackling the problems we face in business and society.
We are a dynamic school balancing the spirit of a young, and innovative class, with the values of an 800-year-old world-class university. The Business School itself was 21 years old in 2017. The Oxford MBA attracts candidates from 60 different nationalities, who come from a wide range of industries and functions.
We are incredibly proud...

The United Kingdom is the sixth largest economy in the world. London is the capital, with the largest city GDP in European Union. It is also known as the world's largest financial center along with New York. UK started the scientific and industrial revolutions, and today its aerospace and pharmaceutical industries are rated among the best.
Unlike other European countries where knowledge of local language is necessary for post-MBA job opportunities, with English, International MBA students can leverage the knowledge of the language for job search and networking.
After completing the MBA program, non-EU students need to apply for a Tier 2 visa, to continue their stay in the UK. This 3-year Visa has stricter norms than the earlier Tier 1 Visa and requires an employer to certify that the position was advertised for, and could not be filled by someone from the EU. All the more reason to go for a top MBA that ensures a Tier 2 Visa. Here are our top seven MBA programs in UK.
