Host: Anders T. Rosen
Roundtable Guests: Kelechi Chillis-Ihenko, Megen Rose Rependa, Michael Ryman
The Spring 2021 season of Manage-A-Bull opens with a discussion between host Anders T. Rosen and three of his second-year MBA classmates who were part of a very important aspect of the MBA degree: The Mentorship Program. Alumni and current students of UB will likely agree that the first semester is a whirlwind. There’s more work to be done than any individual can accomplish alone. That’s why teams and team-building are such an integral part of the learning process.
Mentors are there to provide guidance to those teams as the first-year MBA students work through the team-building process and UB’s Corporate Champions program. On the latest episode of Manage-A-Bull Anders speaks with three classmates: Kelechi Chillis-Ihenko, Megen Rose Rependa and Michael Ryman about their experiences as mentors. They talk about their mentorship styles, the advice they would give to future mentors and the people who helped them out along the way. There might even be a pop culture reference to Cobra Kai. You’ll just have to listen further to find out!
