Our History

Founded in 1096, Oxford University is the oldest university in the English-speaking world and is one of the most prestigious academic institutions in the world known for exacting standards. In 2021, the Times Higher Education World University Rankings listed Oxford University as the #1 university in the world for the fifth consecutive year.

Oxford University alumni and faculty members formed The Oxford Exchange (originally as ‘Oxford Research Associates’) as a non-profit government affairs advisory consultancy. 

The Oxford Exchange (OEX) was recently reorganised as a Trans-Atlantic think tank and global advisory organisation with the added value of offering tailored courses in Oxford, England to select government, military, or private and corporate organisations. The Oxford Exchange is rooted in deep ties with the University of Oxford and other British universities including the University of Cambridge and King’s College London.
