Mr. Khang Le

Partner Development Manager, FPT Software

Please introduce yourself and tell us about a typical workday for you.

I’m Khang, you can call me Marshall. I currently work at. FPT Software in the akaBot team.
My role is Partner Development Manager, focusing on developing partner systems to expand the company’s partner network. Daily, I meet with partners, participate in meetings to understand their challenges, and seek solutions for their issues.

How has the MBA program changed you?

Coming from an IT background, starting from IT infrastructure, then software development, I pursued a Business Master’s degree to equip myself with economic thinking to work with global partners.
What was the most significant aspect that made a difference for you in joining the program?
The instructors are fantastic! I enjoy learning from them. From Human Resources to Finance, all the knowledge is profound, and the instructors strive to create discussions among students. That’s what I love most about the MBA program at Western Sydney University.

What do you like most about the program?

The standout aspect of the MBA program at Western Sydney University is the practical knowledge shared by experts. Events like MBA Talk provide deep insights from lecturers that I can directly apply to work, making tasks more manageable.
Recently, I needed to build a partner management system, similar to a CRM system I learned from Professor Khánh. Learning about CRM from experts helped me understand partner management and company scale development not only domestically but globally.
I’ve had extensive discussions and knowledge exchanges with lecturers. This has provided me practical market knowledge that I’ve tried to emulate and apply to my work.

Do you have any advice for students preparing to enroll in an MBA?

I don’t think I’m experienced enough to offer advice (Laughs). But if I could go back 2-3 years, I’d choose to pursue the Master’s earlier because I feel I’m a bit late in enrolling for the MBA now.
My advice is, when you’re young and have spare time, pursue an MBA because studying while working will significantly accelerate your career.

What’s your evaluation of the program?

Currently, the program focuses on teaching strategy, business understanding, and working with employees. However, why not develop an entrepreneurial mindset for students? Some people aspire to start their own businesses, and it would be meaningful if the program could provide knowledge and skills to create new business ventures.”
