Faris Mango is technical program manager at Amazon. He is a 2015 graduate of the School of Management’s Professional MBA program, a 33-month, part-time evening program specifically designed with working professionals in mind.
After spending nearly eight years in health care, I wanted to expand my knowledge and experience a new industry.
My colleagues and friends highly recommended the program. Also, I like that the program exposes you to all the areas of business you need to understand to become a better leader.
Professor Dansereau’s organizational behavioral course was one of my favorites. It provided a lot of material that I use at work on a daily basis.
He broke his class down to key behavior concepts and for each concept we had to diagnose real-life situations that we encountered at the workplace and prescribe a solution.
This approach helped clarify the concepts and made them easier for me to understand. He also made it quite clear that there isn’t just one silver bullet for leaders and you can’t treat every situation the same.
Stop thinking about it and just apply. You won’t regret it.
I plan to stay in the Western New York area and continue to advance my career in the health care information technology world.
