Future of Business podcast


The Oxford Future of Business podcast is an invitation from current MBA students to step inside the walls of Said Business School and participate in the dynamic conversations that define the place.

Bringing together insights from leading experts at the University, innovative entrepreneurs, and even the hallway conversations between an incredible and diverse cohort, episodes tackle world-scale problems with an eye to the future opportunities. Be it the future of finance or the future of the planet, we bring listeners to the cutting edge of a fast-paced business environment.

Inaugural podcast team

An Australian, a Brit, and a Canadian Walk into a pub…

In classic Oxford style, the Future of Business podcast was born out of a pub conversation at the launch of the 2017-2018 MBA programme. Marvelling at the quality of conversations and breadth of topics they had engaged with in just the first few days, three students began to ponder how they might distil the essence of these experiences into a format that could be shared beyond the walls of the business school. Bringing a few more members onto the team, they leveraged the entrepreneurship project opportunity to bring the idea to life and released season one in the spring of 2018.
