  • We have found The Reports to be immensely helpful…Thank you for your dedication to supporting student initiatives

    Jennifer Storm, Oxford University, UK
  • Simultaneously providing the very latest global information that you do not know and yet also re-configuring and transforming the information that you do already know, Oxford Business Group delivered an event that was deeply insightful and thought-provoking.

    Dr. Kit Burton, Regent’s College London, UK
  • One of the most interesting and eye opening presentation at Cass Business School yet. (...) I believe every professional whether working in the financial sector or not should read at least one of Oxford Business Group's avant-garde Reports

    Karim Hmoud, Msc in Investment Management, Cass Business School in the UK
  • Our students are expected to learn by doing. Hence they need reliable secondary data on which to work, as well as their own personally generated primary data. A number of students told me the reports would have been helpful for their dissertation projects.

    I hope this will be the start of a long and mutually beneficial relationship. Thank you.

    Prof. DA Kirby, Professor, British University in Egypt
  • The initiative your company is taking in engaging students is impressive and required.

    Ralon Nazareth, Academic, University of Waterloo, Dubai
  • I was fascinated not only by the access to lots of free resources but also by the novelty of the format. Your reports will broaden my horizons in all fields, which will certainly be an aid in finishing my thesis (...) I love it!

    Rachel, Student, Shanghai University, China
  • I find OBG's publications very useful. May OBG continue to help more students like me.

    Kat, AB-Political Science, University of Santo Tomas, The Philippines
