Saïd Business School – University of Oxford - 1 + 1 Program

Oxford University 1+1 MBA Program Structure

The Oxford University 1+1 MBA is a two-year postgraduate program designed to combine the depth of a specialized, one-year Master’s degree with the breadth of a one-year full-time MBA. Most students begin with their Master’s specialization in the first year of the program and take on the MBA curriculum in the second.



In the Oxford University 1+1 MBA program, students take their MBA coursework along with a year of Master’s coursework. They can choose from a diverse selection of MSc programs in other University of Oxford Departments. For example, some of the options include the Department of Education, The Criminology Department, and the Faculty of History.

Tuition, Scholarships, and Financial Aid

The cost of the Oxford University 1+1 MBA program is made up of the appropriate MSc tuition fees plus the cost for the MBA program. The cost for the MBA program in 2021-22 is £63,000, as well as the partnering program. This includes college membership, tuition fees and a lifelong membership to the Oxford Union. There will be a limited fee increase the following year.

Along with the other scholarships available to students, the Pershing Square Foundation announced in spring 2014 that it will make a £4.5M gift to fund up to five scholars per year in the 1+1 program, with the purpose of educating social entrepreneurs. The 1+1 admissions team evaluates applicants based on academics, leadership potential, passion for global impact, and a vision of how the 1+1 program could benefit their career. After the 1+1 program accepts an applicant, that student must submit a short statement to be considered for the Pershing Square Graduate Scholarship. Short-listed applicants receive invitations to interview with the scholarship panel.



Applicants must meet the criteria for both the MBA program and the MSc department to which they intend to apply. Interested candidates should complete the online Oxford 1+1 MBA application, selecting 1+1 under the program of interest. As a second step, candidates must also apply to their target MSc program according to departmental application guidelines. Whilst most students have more than three years of prior work experience, Saïd does consider those with less work experience. In this case, the school looks for candidates who are able to demonstrate a high level of maturity, combined with evidence of leadership ability.

Apply to the Oxford MBA by following our application process and entry requirements, by our January deadline. For 2022-24 intake, this will be January 2022.
