Ryan Amsden

Despite receiving offers to pursue a master’s degree at a variety of universities, it was a no-brainer for me to return to Concordia to pursue an MSc in finance. I already knew first-hand the benefits of being surrounded by the wealth of knowledge the 11 research centers and the diverse expertise of the faculty at JMSB provides. Beginning my graduate studies, I have found the environment to be even more supportive than I expected. I particularly enjoy the small class sizes of the seminars as this allows for constructive debates between students. 

Age: 23
Country of origin: Canada
Program: MSc Finance, full-time
Research interests: I hope to help bridge the gap between supply chain and finance literature. My particular interests include examining the commonalities and differences in risk management strategies between the supply chain and finance disciplines, empirically demonstrating the link between supply chain proficiency and firm performance and investigating how sustainable supply chain integration can increase shareholder value.
Academic background: BComm, double major: Supply Chain Operations Management and Finance, at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada.
Exchange studies at Newcastle University, Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Exchange studies at Auckland University of Technology, Auckland, New Zealand
Work experience: Supply chain intern at Bombardier Aerospace
