The Oxford Sustainable Finance Group (OxSFG) is now considering applications for three open-enrolment executive education programmes: the Sustainable Finance Executive Programme, Climate-related Financial Risk Programme, and the Asset Owner Sustainability Leadership Programme.

Andrew McCarthy, Head of Capacity Building and Partnerships at OxSFG, says, “we are thrilled to be expanding our executive education portfolio for 2023. Capacity building is a critical component of our theory of change, and we therefore look forward to supporting leaders who are seeking to embrace the challenges and opportunities presented by the transition to global sustainability.”

First launched in 2016, the Sustainable Finance Executive Programme teaches sustainable finance to the sector’s best and brightest upcoming leaders. The programme is directed by Dr Ben Caldecott and Dr Jacob Schumacher and takes place over 5 days in Oxford from 11-15 September 2023. 

The Climate-related Financial Risk Programme is intended for risk officers in financial institutions as well as analysts, portfolio managers, corporate risk managers, and any senior executive who navigates financial risk. The programme is directed by Dr Gireesh Shrimali and will take place over three days in Oxford from 26-28 June 2023.

Running from 21-23 June 2023, the Asset Owner Sustainability Leadership Programme (AOSLP) is co-designed with the International Centre for Pension Management (ICPM), a global network of pension funds that focuses on fostering long-term investing, strengthening governance of pension investments, and improving design and governance of pension schemes. The programme will blend academic expertise and professional insight with contributions from leading Oxford and ICPM faculty and expert practitioners.

Programme Directors, Dr Ben Caldecott and Professor Rob Bauer said: “The combination of the academic rigour at the University of Oxford with the thought leadership of ICPM provides the ideal environment for asset owners to build strong sustainability leadership in the face of rapidly-evolving science. It is essential that asset owners can access the latest research and analysis, and furthermore, understand how to translate that into practical policy-making.”
