oikos in Residence is a platform for accelerating the creation of materials that will help groups working toward curriculum change in economics and management.
Over the years, we have learned that students are totally capable of creating many of the resources we need to successfully campaign for curriculum change. We’ve also learned that creating these resources can take a ton of time, especially when teams are working with students based in different places.
The goal of oikos in Residence is to kickstart or accelerate these projects by providing a physical space for extended in-person work on international projects related to curriculum change.
The student movement to reform economics and management education has already produced an exciting number of books, reports, articles, bookelts, and websites (read more about that here). The Residence program will continue this tradition by helping members develop, expand and advance their own projects.
13–16 February 2020: Basel, Switzerland
The first oikos in Residence will gather a small group to work to identify the core building blocks of Management education. This will lay the groundwork for the creation of a “build your own degree” guide which can help management students think about how their ideal management education would look. The Residence will also work with the forthcoming “Economy Studies” book to develop tools to help economics students analyze their own curriculum.
June 2020: Turin, Italy
The second oikos in Residence will continue the project started in Basel by bringing together more students to work on writing the “build your own management degree” guide. The Residence will also provide space for students to develop new international research projects. Applications for the Summer Residence will open in Spring 2020.
