Dodin left Riyadh to the United Kingdom to attend a one week residential program Called Young Oxford Entrepreneurial Leadership Program held at Wolfson college, The University of Oxford, 8-14 June 2014.
The program consists of several modules; these include Personal Leadership, Authentic Change Management, Entrepreneurial Issues (such as Entrepreneurial Leader, Entrepreneurial Journey, Funding for New Ventures, Islamic Financing, Venture Capital and Private Equity), and Branding (including Competitive Positioning, Strategic Innovation, Building an Islamic Brand, Building a Global Brand). It also included cases and business & factory tours in Oxford and London such as Oxford Islamic Center, Blenheim Palace, and Lloyds of London. The program was delivered by world class professors and practitioners from the University of Oxford (Said Business School), Cranfield School of Management, and The Angel Investors.
At the end of the program, every student has to submit a report about the impact of this experience. The overarching goal is that students are able to use the art of research and writing to punctuate Oxford experience with a report reflecting her/his experience and what was learnt from different scholars, field studies, and the management innovations. In common with all Business courses taught at the Alfaisal College of Business, this course is taught in accordance with the learning outcomes prescribed by the KSA Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE).
