Why Join the Oxford Strategy Group?
Each term, we help a broad mix of Fortune 500, start-up and social sector organisations from all over the world to solve their most pressing business problems. To date, we have completed projects for over 70 clients, with a combined market capitalisation of $400bn. We've worked with blue-chips like Barclays and Unilever, startups like Abacus, non-profits like Shelter and public bodies like the Office of the Vice-President of Nigeria. Every project is different - ranging from developing a strategy for a start-up’s expansion into Asia to proposing a strategy for a billionaire’s acquisition of a Premier League football club. Either way, you'll be working on solving the most pressing issues for some of the biggest names in business and the social sector.
No matter your career path, OSG offers real-world experience and high-quality training to suit your needs. Our consultants receive training at every step of the process, from planning to presentation. Working closely in a team of 4 or 5 will give you an excellent opportunity to learn to work effectively with others under pressure, while creating structured analyses of business problems will build your analytical thinking. There are also a number of formal roles that you can take within OSG such as project leader or director. When working on a project, everyone has their own expertise and will have the chance to take a lead in those areas. You will also be presenting your recommendations to both the client and also to the rest of OSG.
OSG's training, combined with workshops from elite consulting firms, are designed to help our consultants. In fact, OSG alumni have gone on to tremendous success using those very skills:
OSG gives you a chance to create real change in the way a business operates or a non-profit fulfils its mission. What we do isn't just confined to the University, or even the town; as a consultant with us, you'll have a measurable impact on the world. We also like to say, "Once an OSG-er, always an OSG-er." That means that once you join our group of passionate, talented consultants, you'll always be able to rely on our community of learners and mentors, both at Oxford and around the world.
What makes OSG great is its people; have a listen to what they've said about their experiences.
