The OUBEP teaching faculty brings together academic and industry experts, who combine world-leading research with real-world experience. The faculty for 2019 are currently being finalised. The 2018 faculty are listed below.
The Course Director faciliates the smooth running of the programme over the two weeks. A new Course Director is appointed each year, and the role is usually held by a recent OUBEP alumnus.
The core OUBEP teaching faculty are lecturers and researchers from the Department of Economics at the University of Oxford. The Senior Tutor coordinates all of the academic content of the programme, and the Syndicate Tutors support individual learning throughout the course by facilitating discussion and analysis. Every member of the core faculty attends all of the classes, meals and events that run throughout the two week programme.
