About Philippe

My name is Phil Couturier and I have been a student here at Concordia since 2005, when I initially started my bachelor’s degree. All these years later and many degrees later, I'm still here trying to get my PhD. Although my professional background is in accounting (I'm currently a CPA Auditor, CA), I have always had an interest in studying people, which likely explains why I'm currently pursuing a PhD in organizational behavior. So far my time in the program has been invaluable. I have learned a great deal and have met many interesting people along the way. I only hope that my good experience continues.
