Staff Profile: Matthew McGee

Matthew McGee

Business & Economics Teacher

M.Ed. Uppsala University, Sweden

MBA  Industrial business, economics and marketing, Uppsala University, Sweden

Matt McGee has a background similar to that of many international students: of Irish-American heritage; born in Ecuador, raised in the West Indies, Latin America, Greece and Sweden and teaching ’abroad’ since 2006. After far too many years at Uppsala University in Sweden getting his MEd in History, Politics & Economics and Master’s in Business and Management and Economics, he slipped into teaching much by accident. He started teaching IB economics is Sweden in 1996 and when several ex-students pointed out that they were selling his economics notes to first year students in UK universities, he started writing the first of three editions of his IB economics textbook “The Good, the Bad and the Economist”  in 2001.

Matt spends a goodly portion of his free time at the gym, available fishing waters and going walkabout with loving Australian wife in Indonesia, China, Italy, India, Australia, Alaska and Sweden. The grey area between free time and professional time is geared towards news and current economic affairs and data. He emphasises to students that the “dismal science of economics,” in the words of John Maynard Keynes, stipulates that nothing is beyond the interest and sphere of the economists… whereby students are always encouraged to write to him with suggestions!
