Kelvin Obasuyi Becomes the First Nigerian Awardee for Oxford’s Black Leadership Scholarship

Kelvin Obasuyi is the first Nigerian to be selected for the Oxford Black Leaders Programme.

The Oxford Black Leaders Scholarships, funded by the Sad Business School Foundation, provide financial support to black and mixed-race students residing in the United Kingdom and North America to pursue an Oxford MBA.

These scholarships are meant to support extraordinary future leaders who will contribute to the diversity of the MBA class and the institution as a whole, and who will go on to be remarkable leaders in their respective fields.

The prize is for a master’s degree in business administration (MBA) at the Said Business School for Obasuyi.

In October 2023, the Oxford Black Scholar Programme was unveiled.

The scholarship, according to Sad Business School, is part of Oxford’s commitment to empowering the next generation of black business leaders and ensuring that firms are inclusive, varied, and representative.

Candidates are chosen for their academic proficiency and leadership potential.

Obasuyi is the founder of 56 Capital, an impact investment firm.

Over the last decade, he has also been involved in impact investing, providing assistance to African start-ups.

Obasuyi claims to have invested approximately 100 small and medium-sized firms (SMEs) through his venture capital firm.

According to him, the program is a transformative journey that will offer him vital insight and experience in order to inspire positive change in Africa.

“This scholarship represents not only a recognition of my potential but also a symbol of the collective potential within the Black community,” the entrepreneur and business leader said.
