Said Business School Oxford Polaris Digital Academy

Oxford University Aims to Foster Digital Banking Leadership

The Said Business School is launching the Oxford Polaris Digital Academy, an invitation-only educational program on digital banking for CxOs.

Said Business School Oxford Polaris Digital AcademyOxford University has recently launched an education program aimed to help executives in the banking sectors to understand the digital banking business. The Saïd Business School and Polaris Consulting has collaborated a program known as the Oxford Polaris Digital Academy that will educate executives across different industries on how to be successful in today’s complex digitalised world.

The program has these different objectives –

  • To assess, discuss and debate on the key challenges that the leaders are facing today and its impact on international business.
  • To understand the real implications of the technology in the banking sector and how digital banking can transform their business
  • To provide executives participating in the programme with the skills and the insights they would require to make the digital transformation successfully.
  • To offer a series of 3 day sessions which will allow the executives to learn through various methods, including workshops, simulations, roundtables and interactive learning.

Jitin Goyal, the CEO and Executive Director of Polaris Consulting & Services Ltd said that the executives who participate in the Academy will benefit enormously from the programme and they were very excited about its potential.

The programme is by invitation only and the participants will be decided by the two organisations.

I’m expecting more and more of those partnerships between prestigious international business schools and solution providers keen to drive awareness and build trust and credibility via brand associations like with this exclusive ‘the Oxford Polaris Digital Academy’.  I’d be curious to find out who will get invited to join the inaugural promotion, and who will accept.
