Partner Organizations

The Entrepreneurial Leaders Institute (ELI) is establishing a limited number of relationships with Partner Organizations in strategic centers around the world to source suitable candidates for its global cohort and to provide high-level adjunct instructors to supplement its core Oxford faculty.  The Partner Organizations are a limited number of high-level, credible institutions that are values-compatible with the ELI and that have a track record of excellence.
