Enjoy an Oxbridge study experience
Our Business programmes are taught in the city of Oxford, which has a long and distinguished history of academic excellence. Students live and study in Oxford college accommodation: the perfect scholarly environment in which to take your academic career to the next level. The ancient and beautiful buildings of these colleges evocatively add to the atmosphere of academic excellence which inspires our students to excel themselves. Their beautiful city centre, meanwhile, is the perfect location for a short stay; plenty to explore and discover without leaving too much undone.
Give your University applications the edge
On our Business programmes, students will learn the principles of business, finance, accounting and human resources, and how they relate to the broader picture of economics and marketing. The programme is taught at different levels, with Introduction to Enterprise for 13-15s, Business and Enterprise for 16-18s (also offered in Cambridge) and Global Business Management and Finance for 19-25s, so everyone can benefit from the teachings of our expert summer faculty. The tutors have extensive experience of university applications, and can give the students valuable guidance in making their choices, which could help determine an ambitious student’s career.
Looking at Business as a career
A range of subject-specific activities and excursions is available depending on age range and programme choice. Whether you visit the London Stock Exchange, The Bank of England, or the Chelsea Football Stadium, the trips help to foster an interest in the day-to-day life of an entrepreneur. Each student will have the opportunity to experience first-hand what it is like to work in the world of business and enterprise, and our students are always awed by by the professionalism displayed. A reason in itself to attend one of our immersive courses!
Learn what it takes to be an Entrepreneur
Business is an exacting, but rewarding and profession, so we seek to provide students with valuable insight into what a top University or MBA programme would expect from its students. We aim to provide a realistic sense of what a career in Business and Enterprise involves, as well as a strong set of transferable skills that will be of equal use at school and in the workplace. These experiences are highly valued at the point of application for higher study, making the experience gained on an ORA summer course invaluable.
Make valuable connections
An ORA Business and Enterprise summer course is the perfect place to make connections with other budding entrepreneurs, and share your experiences of and enthusiasm for the corporate world. But it’s not all work and no play – when not in class you will have the opportunity to enjoy ORA’s signature parties and a variety of workshops and excursions! Some of the friendships made on ORA summer courses have lasted long into adult life for our students – the sort of connections which would make many universities proud to have you.
