Saïd Business School – University of Oxford

History

The Oxford University Saïd Business School was founded in 1996, but business as a program of study dates back to the 1960’s at Oxford, and the foundation of the School itself began in 1988 with a recommendation for a Management Studies school at Oxford. The first MBA students were admitted in 1996, and in that first year they attended lectures in the Radcliffe Infirmary, a fully functioning hospital in the center of Oxford. The school has since moved to its Park End Street location, which was erected in 2001 after a £23 million donation by Wafic Saïd. In 2013, the Prince of Wales inaugurated the newest wing of the school.

Oxford University itself has been open for nearly 1,000 years. While no exact date exists for the beginning of the institution, it is well-regarded as the oldest English-speaking university and is currently the second-oldest active university in world history.

Location

The Saïd School is divided into two locations: Park End Street, the building constructed specifically for the Business School in 2001, is a state-of-the-art modern construction that echoes the deep veins of tradition and learning that run through Oxford. The other location, Egrove Park, is used primarily for Executive Education, and has recreational, conference, residential, and educational amenities.

Transportation to Heathrow and Gatwick airports through London’s multiple public transit systems is very accessible to and from the Saïd Business School.
