Oxford University Executive MBA Program Structure

The 22-24-month Oxford University Executive MBA begins each year in January and September. During the two years, students will experience e-learning, as well as 16 self-contained residential week-long modules.



The Oxford University Executive MBA consists of nine core course modules. These modules include Accounting, Analytics, Firms and Markets, and Leadership Fundamentals, for instance. In addition, students will choose six-to-eight elective courses. Electives are more specific and explore in-depth topics in business. A group entrepreneurship project also spans the program’s length, allowing students to put their theoretical coursework into practice.

Two core courses and one elective of the 16 modules will take place overseas. During these courses, students will visit and learn from industry leaders in those global markets. Also unique to Oxford’s MBA programs, the Global Opportunities and Threats Oxford, or GOTO, component challenges students to use their accumulating business acumen to address global issues.
