Dr. Ryan likes to describe his personal and educational backgrounds as eclectic. He was born and raised in France to an Irish-American father and an Iranian mother. At the tender age of nineteen, his parents shipped him off to the US to attend Swarthmore College. At Swarthmore, Dr. Ryan majored in History. After graduation, he moved to Boston and worked for PwC as an IT Consultant. That experience sparked his interest in business. Dr. Ryan then attended business school at Washington University in St. Louis, thanks to a generous scholarship. There, he earned an MBA and an MA in International Affairs. After working for both America Online and Sigma-Aldrich, Dr. Ryan decided that his true calling was teaching. He moved to Dublin, Ireland, to attend the PhD program at the Smurfit Graduate School of Business at University College Dublin.
