Visiting students interested in management have access to a wide variety of academic and non-academic opportunities while at LMH. We are one of the few Oxford colleges to offer tutorials in management to visiting students.
We can offer one management major (or minor) per term – it is unfortunately not possible to take tutorials solely in management subjects.
Oxford’s Saïd Business School (SBS) hosts entry-level core undergraduate courses in:
- General Management (MT & HT)
- Financial Reporting (MT only)
- Financial Analysis (HT only)
For those students entering with prior course work in accounting, finance, marketing and/or operations management, there are advanced undergraduate electives offered (examples are listed below) at SBS during Michaelmas and Hilary terms (the availability of courses in each term varies by year). All SBS courses are a combination of lectures and tutorials.
- Organisational behaviour
- Corporate strategy
- Global strategy
- Global markets
- Industrial relations
In general, the availability of any course in any term will be dependent on availability of a suitable tutor. We would therefore ask students to be as flexible as possible regarding courses and to recognise that we cannot guarantee the availability of any particular course in advance. Tutorial options in management are finalised when students arrive in Oxford and meet with their Personal Tutor to discuss their interests.
It is important to note that the study of management at Oxford tends to differ somewhat to that of other institutions; the course options use primary sources and not textbooks, and the courses are not intended to be functional, but rather scholarly, with the analysis of journal articles.
The Oxford community is a significant source for new science-based and social ventures to solve large and local-scale problems. Thus, students interested in entrepreneurship and social innovation are highly encouraged to get involved with Oxford Entrepreneurs, the largest student-run organization at the university http://www.oxfordentrepreneurs.co.uk and the Oxford Hub http://www.oxfordhub.org during their stay.
