The dean announced her position on the Dean’s Honor List and talked about the events she organised. She was also elected as the Co. Chair of the Women’s Leadership Oxford Business Network, working to promote gender equality and promoting women in leadership positions.
About Saïd prize
Every year this prize is awarded to one outstanding student at the business school for their outstanding academic and co-curricular activities. Usually these students have excellent contributions to the MBA program as well as the Oxford community on the whole.
Recently, Oxford University was ranked as the best university in the world by Times Higher Education. The rankings are based on several factors that collectively determine the worth of a university.
Most of the universities failed to even make it past the top 500 rankings. Only Quaid-e-Azam University managed to crack the top 500.
