OBA Purpose



Proceeds from the OBAF are being used to fund a new OBA/Boston Consulting Group scholarship for the most exceptional Australian student studying business at Oxford University.

Oxford’s Saïd Business School, which continues to be extremely supportive of the OBA network in Australia, has promised to match the scholarship funding.

Oxford University has more than 2,500 Australian graduates, many of whom have risen to the highest ranks of commerce, the law, medicine, diplomacy, politics, media and government.

Oxford alumni sit on the boards of Australia’s largest companies, operate at senior executive levels in the nation’s largest accounting and consulting companies, serve as our nation’s Ambassadors, have been elected Prime Minister or Premier, sit as High Court judges and are at the leading edge of medical research - yet many have no formal connection with each other.

The Oxford Business Alumni seeks to draw on the collective strength of this unique group to:


  • fund an annual scholarship for the most outstanding Australian business student to study at Oxford University
  • attract senior Australian business figures with board and senior management experience into a business dialogue for the benefit of Australia
  • attract recent Oxford University graduates and middle managers who have the potential to rise to senior corporate positions in Australia
  • encourage a mentor/protégé culture to emerge between different generations of Australian Oxford University graduates.
