The challenge
We live in momentous times. Our society as a whole has never been more prosperous. Yet despite the
many impressive and far-reaching advances achieved over the last century, we still face many challenges
such as poverty, inequality, economic and social instability, overpopulation and climate change. These
challenges call for dynamic, visionary and highly capable leaders, committed to addressing the world’s
complexities 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. This is the essence of the Oxford 1+1 MBA
programme, which offers students the unique opportunity to gain the depth of an Oxford Masters
degree with the breadth of an MBA.
The Oxford Pershing Square Graduate Scholarship will support up to five extraordinary individuals each
year to realise their passion to address world-scale social challenges. Through the degree, students will
acquire skills and networks that enable them to create a real difference as effective and transformative
leaders of the future.

Throughout their two-year programme at Oxford, Scholars will be mentored by leaders across
business, academic and social sectors, and be supported by dedicated staff members at the
Saïd Business School to help them explore the endless opportunities both at Oxford and in
their careers. Academic work will be complemented further by a series of group activities
including events, private dinners, and membership into student societies, aimed at strengthening
professional networks.
Each Scholar will become a member of one of Oxford’s 38 colleges, allowing them to interact
with students and faculty from a variety of academic backgrounds, in situations from high table
dinners to college balls. Scholars will also join an exclusive University-wide scholars’ network
which includes the Rhodes, Clarendon and Skoll Scholars.
Scholars will have access to Oxford’s alumni networks which span nearly 130 different countries.
Scholars will also receive ongoing dedicated support towards their goals from both the Said
