On 30 November 2017, Saïd Business School lifted the Business School of the Year trophy at the Times Higher Education Awards. The awards are widely recognised as the “Oscars of higher education” and recognise the achievements of individuals, teams and institutions.
Roe Communications worked closely with the marketing team at Saïd to produce the award submission. The award win is fantastic news and fully deserved, recognising the outstanding work of the faculty, staff and students at the business school.
The judges were impressed by the scope of activities at Oxford Saïd in the area of responsible business and applauded the school’s ‘formidable record’ of research that has contributed to the study of happiness and well-being in the workplace for the UN World Happiness Report, and explored how corporations can work in ways that benefit themselves and wider society in projects done in conjunction with Mars and the Ford Foundation. They were particularly impressed by the Global Opportunities and Threats: Oxford programme, where students and faculty work together to tackle major issues affecting businesses and society.
The gala ceremony took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane in London. Winners were chosen by a distinguished panel of judges, from hundreds of entries submitted by universities from all corners of the UK.
