Saïd Business School – University of Oxford - One Year MBA
Oxford University One Year MBA Program Structure
The Oxford University One Year MBA is broken into four terms, with a three-week orientation program at the beginning. The first term, Michaelmas, is devoted to core courses; the second, Hilary, adds electives and the Entrepreneurship Project to the mix; the third term, Trinity, continues the elective and core course balance. The summer term brings with it a choice of a consulting project, an internship, or summer elective courses.
When students arrive at the Oxford One Year MBA, they are immediately immersed in the activities of MBA Launch, an orientation program designed to lay the groundwork for the intensive yearlong program. Students have lectures, workshops, projects, and other events to attend. After those first three weeks, they embark on the Michaelmas term, which is comprised of core courses, including topics such as Business Finance, Analytics, Accounting, Strategy, Marketing, Leadership Fundamentals, and more. The first integrative module is Entrepreneurship, and occurs during this first term. The Hilary term continues the work on core courses and allows students to choose elective courses and begin the Entrepreneurship Project. The Trinity Term picks up where the Michaelmas and Hilary terms left off, with students continuing their coursework. The summer term is the most independent of the terms, and students can choose to do an internship, a consulting project, or summer elective courses.
In terms of methodology, the school divides their intended structure as follows: 40 percent lecture, 25 percent team project, 25 percent case study, and 10 percent simulations.
