One of the University of Oxford’s newest projects has been to open The Foundry – a dedicated space for students to pursue business and entrepreneurial ideas. Innovation and business in Oxford is thriving; so, what better way for students to hone their skills in this area than by coming to OSA’s dedicated two-week Young Executive programme, developed by Said Business School (University of Oxford) MBA graduates. Students will not only get a crash course in business theory – including entrepreneurial finance, marketing, ideas generation as well as an insight into leadership, but they will also learn how to create a business plan. Students will look at the changing nature of the workplace and how working environments have dramatically shifted in the past 20 years. The end of the course culminates in a business pitch judged by real industry experts.
The course includes:
- Entrepreneurial Finance
- Strategy and Innovation
- Marketing and Advertising
- Responsible Business
- Entrepreneurship and Idea Generation Workshops
This course fills the 2 week period, so students do not need to pick any further courses to take while at the Oxford Summer Academy.
