University of Oxford

Margaret Stevens is a Professor of Economics at the University of Oxford, a Senior Research Fellow of Lincoln College, and currently Head of the Economics Department. She has worked in Oxford since 1993, teaching microeconomics, labour economics, public economics and quantitative economics; from 2000 until 2016 she was the Tutorial Fellow in Economics at Lincoln College. Her research interests are mainly in labour economics, particularly equilibrium search and matching models, and their application to vocational training and other labour market policy questions. Other areas of interest are education, health and welfare policy. Margaret is involved in the CORE project, an international collaboration of university economists developing a new introductory economics curriculum for undergraduates.

At the core of the Oxford University Business Economics Programme is an intensive, two-week development course for the next generation of senior leaders. By combining high-calibre academic tuition, industry-leading keynote speakers, and a diverse group of delegates, OUBEP creates a dynamic space to explore economic theory and applications to help solve problems and create strategic impact.

OUBEP curates an immersive, rich and intense experience for participants. At its core, lies a combination of outstanding teaching with tutoring sessions in smaller groups. Participants are also able to take advantage of networking opportunities around drinks and dinner or whilst taking part in typical Oxford activities.
