The Enterprise and the Environment Summer School is designed, delivered and managed by the University of Oxford. It is a programme intended for undergraduates, as well as recent graduates and young professionals passionate about leading environmental change in business, NGOs or the government sector.
The Summer School combines our world class faculty, cutting edge research and expert practitioners; they will explore topics with you such as environmental economics and policy, enterprise management, financial markets and investment to approach critical environmental challenges in the 21st century.
Whilst many summer schools operate in Oxford and hire University facilities only a very small handful of University departments hold their own summer programmes. The Enterprise and the Environment Summer School is one of these precious few and is aligned with the Smith School's internal research and taught to the same standards and by Oxford University academics. In total we will provide you with over 50 hours of teaching across the two weeks and intersperse this with extra-curricular activities, networking opportunities and outings.
Our small group work will enable you to have close contact and engage with our academics. We believe that this is a vitally important part of helping students to understand the topics and engage personally with faculty in the same vein as teaching at Oxford would traditionally allow.
