Oxford Seminar on Social Innovation


Purpose: Open to all majors, this seminar is a sharply focused, two-week experience sponsored by BYU Undergraduate Education. Classes are held at the Oxford University Saïd Business School. Students learn the skills, theory, and practice of social innovation, responsible entrepreneurship, and ethical leadership. The Oxford seminar aims to foster creative problem-solving so that BYU students will develop the tools to be able to address some of our most pressing social, economic, and environmental challenges. Moreover, the seminar seeks to inculcate attitudes of innovation, cooperation, and a desire to serve and give back to local, national, and global communities in which they live. When students return to BYU they will be better prepared to apply to national scholarships and fellowships that will help to provide further training, resources, and professional networks for their ideas in social innovation and entrepreneurship.

Qualifications: Open to all majors.
Cost: $3,200-3,400 (aproximate). Includes LDS, undergraduate full tuition (increased cot for graduate and non-LDS students), international health insurance, housing, and most lunches and dinners during the week.
Additional Info: Students will receive 2 BYU Honors Special Projects credits for the Seminar. Accepted students are required to participate in an international, cross-cultural preparation seminar. This 3 hour long seminar will be taught one evening during winter semester 2014.
