Oxford University and GlobeScan launched a new Global Corporate Affairs partnership in 2019 to help senior executives and corporate affairs leaders improve their impact of the corporate affairs function. We have hosted a number of expert panel discussions, webinars and launched our annual Oxford-GlobeScan Corporate Affairs Survey in 2020.  We have over 100 Corporate Affairs practitioners in our exclusive Global Council member community and we offer a platform for shared learning and collaboration within the function.

The partnership will leverage both organizations’ combined expertise in this area and will deliver enhanced insight into the roles, responsibilities, challenges, opportunities, and issues facing leading global corporate affairs professionals around the world.

Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, created the Corporate Affairs Academy, a research-led programme for leading global corporate affairs professionals interested in developing greater insights and shared best practice back in 2011.

Independent insights and strategy consultancy, GlobeScan, has a mission to "build trusted leadership to create a better future" around the sustainable business agenda. In 2016, they launched a platform of research and engagement amongst leading corporate affairs directors that culminated in an annual Corporate Affairs Survey.

Through this online engagement platform we will share new thinking and practices that will empower the corporate affairs community, the media, fellow researchers and others through a regular “pulse” of novel, timely and data-driven insights about the evolution of the corporate affairs function and its agenda.
