We live in momentous times. Our society as a whole has never been more prosperous. Yet despite the last centurys many impressive and far-reaching advances, we still face many challenges such as poverty, inequality, economic and social instability, over population and climate change. These challenges call for dynamic, visionary and highly-capable leaders, committed to addressing complex challenges through intelligent, well-developed management skills.The solution
The most effective leaders are able to use a broad understanding of management to translate specific domain knowledge into practical and innovative outcomes.
Here, at Saïd Business School, future leaders are studying how successful organisations appreciate the written and unwritten rules of the game, and how they create new rules through innovation, entrepreneurship and social enterprise.1+1 MBA = depth + breadth

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
The University, its departments and colleges offer a wide variety of scholarships, giving the brightest candidates from around the world the opportunity to pursue graduate study.
The majority of our scholarships do not require you to make an additional application; all applicants who apply to the University by the relevant deadline will be considered automatically. However, you should read the scholarship details carefully to find out if there are any additional requirements. Most scholarships are only available to students who are about to start a new course, so it is vital to explore your options early.
