    Oxford Social Finance Programme: Taking social finance to scale

    Oxford Saïd is the first business school in the world to offer a complementary suite of executive programmes focusing on social finance and impact investing. We draw on the latest research conducted through the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship by Professor Alex Nicholls, our Academic Director. Alex recently released the first comprehensive book on Social Finance.

    You will be surrounded by a group of deeply committed, intensely curious colleagues, eager to build a better world. You will be immersed in academic rigour and will study ambitious, disruptive global initiatives intended to drive solutions to scale.

    Scale here is defined as Big Bet or Grand Challenge, deals that require significant investment of resources – the multi-millions, billions or trillions of dollars needed to achieve Sustainable Development Goals or Climate Change interventions, or have a significant scope (city-wide, country-wide, or global impact).

    Our social impact alumni network is a globally diverse group of industry pioneers, representing 56 nationalities and 54 work countries across all 7 continents.

    We invite you to develop your social finance strategy with us.
