As a world-class business school embedded in one of the world’s greatest and oldest universities, research is at the very heart of our work at Oxford Saïd.
This is the first-ever research strategy for Saïd Business School. It is based on consultation with members of our research community, the School’s leadership and the School Board.
Our strategy outlines:
- Our research mission, celebrating our existing strengths
- How we will continue to move forward by identifying priority development areas for the future
- The investments we intend to make to ensure that Saïd Business School is one of the best places for academic business research in the world.
Our research strategy recognises our strengths and will help to guide our activities in the coming years, ensuring that Oxford Saïd continues to have a real and positive impact on the world through business.
Priority development areas
At present, the School considers at least the following areas to be areas of priority development from a research standpoint:
Accountability of and trust in business and institutions
Emerging technologies, AI, algorithms, data science and machine learning
Issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic
Societal, business and leadership challenges that arise from macro factors
Leadership, operations, and patient and data management in healthcare
As we look towards an increasingly complex future, we strive to work together to solve some of the most important issues facing business and society.
