Beatrice Weder di Mauro (born August 3, 1965) is a Swiss economist. She was nominated to the UBS board of directors in February 2012. From June 2004 to 2012 she was a member of the German Council of Economic Experts. She was the first woman and the first non-German in the council but decided to vacate her seat to avoid any conflict of interest after the UBS nomination.
Weder di Mauro studied economics at the University of Basel, earning her Ph.D. in 1993. She then worked for the International Monetary Fund (1994–96) and the World Bank Group (1996–97). She tenured as visiting professor at University of Basel, and Harvard University, before getting a professorship at the University of Mainz in 2001.
