What is GOTO?

Global Opportunities and Threats: Oxford (GOTO) is an action-oriented problem-solving community geared towards addressing some of the most complex issues that face the world today. Students and alumni will connect with faculty from across the University of Oxford and their research via this online platform to discuss, debate, and drive new business ideas that address global issues. One issue will be considered per year. For 2014, we will address the impact of Big Data on business and society.

How does GOTO work?

Most of our community will connect via this online platform but not all of GOTO takes place virtually. Our students will consider the issue through individual study on the platform and then have tutorials with faculty from across Oxford. The work produced for these tutorials will be available on the platform for the rest of the community to comment, debate and critique.

Request to join GOTO

In this pilot phase, GOTO is open to students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford, and to others at the University of Oxford. If you are a member of the Oxford community, and would like to join GOTO, please contact goto@sbs.ox.ac.uk. We anticipate expanding the GOTO community to include other academic institutions later this year.
