  • Participating in a wide range of events within the school
  • Being a research associate of a business school underpinned by a leading research intensive university

The alumni network

Your cohort and cohorts from previous years are likely to form the most valuable network throughout your career. From day one you join the alumni association, a group of more than 70,000 people spread over 150 countries. There are regional and international alumni groups and special interest groups providing a priceless series of events, mentoring programmes, career advice, and industry contacts and information.

The environment

Taught at our Greenlands campus on the banks of the River Thames in Oxfordshire within 30 acres of beautiful conservation parkland. We are less than an hour’s drive from Heathrow Airport, within easy reach of London and close to many major motorway links. It is perfect for quiet reflection as well as stimulating debate with other leading business minds and provides an ideal learning environment for busy executives: you have the space and surroundings required to stretch your mind and think away from the pressures of the office.

Class sizes are deliberately small and delivered in board-room style seminar rooms to facilitate group work and discussion. Resources include the ARC (Academic Resource Centre) that holds books, journals, market research reports, dissertations, working papers and company information. The modern new space provides the perfect place for study, including a 24-hour quiet study space.

Leisure facilities include a fully equipped and professionally staffed fitness centre, outdoor sporting facilities, on-site accommodation and restaurant.
