Amir Rad began his journey at University Canada West on a quest for new opportunities. Two years later, after completing his Master of Business Administration degree, he found just that by landing a position with a company paving the way for a new era in dentistry.
Amir, who has both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in biomedical engineering, decided to pursue his MBA after starting a company in Iran, designing patient-specific surgical implants. He said that while he knew the science, he struggled with the business side of things – like how to manage an organization and properly price and promote his products and services.
“I had a hard time controlling and managing things in a proper way and an efficient way,” he said.
