Mike Moffatt

Mike Moffatt is an Assistant Professor in the Business, Economics and Public Policy group at Ivey Business School at Western University where he teaches courses in international trade and firm-level strategy. An economist by training, Mike’s interests relate to the intersection of public policy, economic growth and business strategy for exporting companies. Mike, his wife Hannah, his daughter Marguerite, his dog Robbie Burns, and two cats all live two blocks from where Mike, Hannah and Marguerite were born: St. Joseph’s Hospital in London, Ontario. Mike is a passionate defender of Southwestern Ontario, where his family has lived for generations and developed an interest in public policy through witnessing the economic decline of the region. Mike has a Ph.D. in Management Science from Ivey, an M.A. in Economics from the University of Rochester and a Combined Honours B.A. in Economics and Political Science from Western University. The interest Mike has in business strategies for exporters is not purely academic in nature. In 2005 he co-founded Nexreg Compliance Inc., a company that provides consulting services to exporters in the chemical industry.
