Introducing Ifeoluwa, Adam, Zelda, Katherine and Quyen.
Five exceptional students helping tackle some of the world’s most pressing social issues have been announced as Saïd Business School, University of Oxford’s newest Pershing Square Scholars.
Ifeoluwa Olokode, Adam Hegedus, Zelda Hollings, Katherine French and Quyen Tran have all been chosen as the 2022-2024 intake at Oxford Saïd.
The scholarship supports students undertaking the Oxford 1+1 MBA programme, which allows participants to combine a Master's degree from selected Oxford University departments with the one-year MBA at the school. Every year, up to six scholars are announced.
Commenting on the new scholars, Kathy Harvey, Associate Dean, MBA and Executive Degrees, said:
‘From Nigeria to New Zealand, with backgrounds spanning healthcare, education and sustainability, our new cohort is a diverse group with an impressive list of achievements to their names. The scholarship will help them to build expertise in their specialist fields and grow as world class business leaders. We very much look forward to welcoming them into our School community and the wider university.’
As part of the scholarship, scholars are given the opportunity for mentorship and networking within the Pershing Square Foundation's community and are also invited to take part in a 'trek' to New York hosted by the Pershing Square Foundation.
