After obtaining a bachelor’s degree specialized in applied economics, Professor Mathieu Bouchard worked for 8 years as a strategic advisor in investment management for large pension plans. During that period, he earned the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) professional designation and an MBA in action. He then completed a PhD in management, strategy and entrepreneurship at HEC Montréal, and a SSHRC-funded postdoctoral fellowship at uOttawa’s Telfer School of Management.

Professor Bouchard studies how user-led organizations forming in the margins of professional and commercial systems operate as an ecosystem of social innovation. So far, his research has focused on the health care system, which remains a key domain of interest, but he also plans to explore these insights in the education, food, and financial systems. His research has been published in peer-reviewed journals including Academy of Management Review, Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, and Journal of Ethics in Mental Health in addition to several practitioner-oriented journals. He uses inductive, process-oriented qualitative research methods including organizational ethnography and discourse analysis. Being committed to organizational equity and sustainability, Professor Bouchard is also interested in participatory action-research and effective methods to set up collective learning activities such as communities of practice.
