The Oxford Saïd Service Corps has already supported many MBA students with a living stipend while they undertook internships and consulting projects in organisations needing help following the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
It has proved to be an important initiative that we are determined to continue. Students enrich their knowledge and gain practical experience as they apply what they have learnt on the MBA programme to help organisations respond to the crisis and rebuild the world better. In particular, members of the Service Corps work with non-profits, international organisations, and early-stage companies – organisations that typically cannot afford to compensate their interns, but that are playing a major part in the Covid-19 recovery.
How you can help
- Make a donation to the Dean's Response Fund. The fund ensures that students are paid a living wage while undertaking internships or consulting projects as part of the Corps.
- Spread the word and connect us to potential employers and potential funders of the scheme. Contact us if your organisation would like to get involved through partnerships, direct sponsorship, or through providing your own paid internships.
