Ryan Calder


Active as both an instructor and practitioner, Ryan Calder has his finger on the pulse of the accounting profession. Now a partner with MNP LLP, he started his career in public practice with KPMG in 2003 and became part of the UBC DAP program faculty in 2011 while continuing to provide accounting, assurance, tax and advisory services to private sector clients. A three-time winner of the UBC DAP Teaching Excellence Award, he draws on both aspects of his career to offer students a practical education informed by the realities of his consulting work. Ryan also spent several years working as a session leader for the CPA Western School of Business and has been involved with preparing content and authoring cases for the CASB UFE-prep program. Philosophically, he sees teaching as an opportunity to pay it forward, based on the excellent training and guidance he’s received over the years and takes great pleasure in seeing “the light bulb turn on” with students in the classroom.
