Portrait of John McVea

John McVea

Program Director

(651) 962-4202
jfmcvea@stthomas.edu

John McVea researches and teaches in the areas of entrepreneurial strategy and social entrepreneurship. His work had been published in journals such as The Journal of Business Venturing and The Journal of Business Ethics.

He has written more than a dozen business case studies focusing on issues such as market entry strategy, innovation field studies, cash flow forecasting, the challenges of growth and the use of social media. His teaching philosophy brings together three approaches: student centered learning through case discussion, writing across the curriculum and place-based education. These approaches result in highly interactive discussion based classroom experiences.

Originally from the North of Ireland, he has undergraduate degrees in both engineering and economics from the University of Birmingham, England, an M.B.A. from the Darden School and a Ph.D. from The University of Virginia.

Before returning to academia, McVea spent a dozen years working in industry for Dupont, initially in product/market development in the U.S. and ultimately asmanager of textile filament manufacturing operation in the U.K. After earning his M.B.A., he worked for Bain & Co. in Boston as a strategy consultant advising in fields ranging from paper manufacture to oil drilling to private equity acquisition assessment.
