Oxford to India: Global Business Seminar

Dates: 3 July–4 August 2023
Application Deadline: 20 February 2023

During this sharply focused, four-and-a-half-week experience sponsored by the Marriott School’s Global Business Center, you will attend classes at the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford, taught by Oxford professors, where you will learn the skills, theory, and practice of global business and leadership. The seminar will give you a chance to work on a real-life, resume-building global project(s) for businesses based in India. Participants in the program will also be exposed to Oxford’s rich history and culture as well as have the opportunity to take nearby excursions during free time. The group will travel to Stonehenge, Bath, Salisbury Cathedral, Canterbury, London, and other sites as part of the program.

You will then fly to Hyderabad and Delhi, India, to continue the project(s) in country. These projects will be more than just business projects; they will be projects that help local micro-enterprises or growing businesses, thus improving lives of individuals, sometimes members of the Church. In India, the group will visit Golconda Fort and the Charminar District in Hyderabad, and then will travel to see the Agra Fort in Agra, the spice market of Delhi, the Amer fort and step wells in Jaipur, and of course, the Taj Mahal. One of the best ways to experience India for the first time is with a group leader who is experienced and can help navigate the amazing culture. This is one of those trips.

The program is open to all majors. In fact, majors from across campus are desired as the diversity of thought improves the outcomes of the projects. You can expect to develop real-life international business, marketing, strategy, and global experience in both developed and developing countries.
