Why OXFORD?

In 2010, UCR's School of Business launched the "UCR at Oxford" Program during Spring Break. Over 100 UCR students have spent their spring break in residency at Oxford participating in customized lectures for our UCR cohort and visiting important cultural and corporate sites such as Blenheim Palace (birth home of Winston Churchill), BMW's Mini Cooper manufacturing plant, Prodrive's manufacturing plants, and various signature landmarks in London.

The 2018 "UCR at Oxford" Program will be held at Mansfield College, one of the 38 colleges within the University of Oxford – the oldest English-speaking university in the world which has been educating leaders for the past 800 years. The "Oxford Young Entrepreneurial Leadership Program" has been designed to provide UCR students with the opportunity to integrate advanced teaching and learning in management from Oxford academics and industry entrepreneurs with a focus on the practical approach to entrepreneurial education. The Program's student learning outcomes are to develop entrepreneurial creativity and awareness, encourage the application of entrepreneurial skill sets and to develop leadership capabilities that can be applied to any business environment.
