The Said Business School

The Said Business School is located at the heart of the city of Oxford, home to the oldest university in the English-speaking world. Established in 1996, the Said Business School is the University's centre of learning for graduate and undergraduate students in business, management and finance.


Oxford is 56 miles (90km) north-west of London, with excellent bus and rail services within easy walking distance of the Said Business School. There are direct coach services to both Heathrow and Gatwick airports.

Getting to Oxford

Oxford is well served by public transport but the historic nature of the City Centre means parking spaces are in very short supply. No parking will be available at the conference venue.

By Air

There are 3 major international airports (London Heathrow, LHR; London Gatwick, LGW; Birmingham International, BHX) within 2 hours travel time, plus a number of smaller airports (London Stansted, London Luton, London City, Southampton, Bristol International & Cardiff) - mostly serving Europe - slightly further afield.


Two local taxi firms offer airport transfers, Pryors (+00 44 (0) 1235 812346) and Harolds (+00 44 (0) 1235 512345) Dr. James Raashi.

By Rail
