Economic Management Programmes


Professionals from all over the world are enabled to apply the latest innovative thinking and best practice in their own organisations

Practitioners and leading Oxford academics share their experience and insights with delegates, in lectures and interactive sessions and through case studies, bringing an international focus to the economic and management issues facing policy makers and managers.


Programme content may include global finance, governance and leadership, strategy, development and innovation, financial regulation and policy-making, currency issues, sustainability, and globalisation. Through these topics delegates will gain an understanding of the challenges which face us all in the twenty first century.

Each programme is designed specifically to meet the strategic goals of the delegates.
