Moving on to a new role
I was a regional (APAC) marketing manager at Roche Diagnostics when I started theUniversity at Buffalo (UB)Executive MBA (EMBA) programme at the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM). Upon its completion, I was transferred to the United States and now have global portfolio responsibility for our main cancer diagnostics platforms.
I pursued an advanced degree as I felt it was necessary to sharpen my global business acumen in order to advance my career. I chose the programme because it offered the flexibility to gain a formal business education while maintaining a very heavy travel and work load. I was also impressed by UB's established history in Singapore for its longest running EMBA programme.
The programme sharpened my strategic thinking skills and gave me greater confidence whenworking across different functions, such as finance, operations and marketing.
