Business Fellows

The Smith School's Business Fellows Programme brings together leading thinkers from the business world who are helping to shape their company and industry response to the challenges of achieving net zero emissions and the sustainable development goals. The programme is an important part of our mission, and we are immensely grateful to the Business Fellows who contribute to making the Smith School a success.

Business Fellows contribute to the success of the Smith School through:

  • Exchanging ideas: Sharing ideas and exploring sustainability challenges with academics
  • Joining our fellowship: Business Fellows are invited to various dinners and lectures with leading external thinkers and contribute to our community and fellowship
  • Being ambassadors: Taking updates on the latest thinking from Smith School scholars and sharing it with appropriate members of the business community
  • Mentoring: Mentoring students and academics through dialogue about translation of academic research into real-life business sector applications
  • Publishing: Encouraging collaboration on academic publications, by providing data, insights or new ideas. Providing students with the opportunity to base their dissertations and research papers on aspects of business sustainability
  • Teaching: Presenting academic seminars and forums at the University of Oxford on the theme of business sustainability, or on our new MSc in Sustainability, Enterprise and the Environment.
