Saïd Business School
The Said Business School is part of Oxford University. It was established in the 1990s thanks to a generous benefaction from the Chairman of the Said Foundation, Mr Wafic Rida Saïd. Today, it is a world-class business school, ranked by the Times and the Guardian first in the UK for its undergraduate Management programme and by the Financial Times first in the UK for its executive education programmes and third for its MBA.
Wafic Said set up the Said Business School Foundation in 1998 to support the development of the School. It built the School’s award-winning home by Oxford’s railway station and handed it over to the School in 2001. The School has grown rapidly since the building enabled it to do so and has now added executive education to its portfolio along with its degree programmes and research. It is entering a new phase of growth for which a second building alongside its original home is being constructed with the help of the Foundation.
