109 NW Naito
109 NW Naito Parkway, Portland, OR 97209

Join us for the October OEMBA Speaker Series featuring Manish Sinha, MBA ’98, chief information officer and vice president at ANSYS, Inc. Living and working around the globe have provided Manish with an expert perspective on managing a diverse global work force. According to Manish, businesses are no longer tied to one geographical region—work is being done around the clock in a global environment with a globally diverse workforce. Whether you are a project manager in Portland managing a customer relationship management implementation or a technical subject matter expert for SAP or a construction worker working on a bridge, you are dealing with work being done by a globally and culturally diverse work force whose needs must be addressed.


Manish Sinha, MBA ’98, winner of CIO of Year in 2016 and nominee for the Peer CIO award, is chief information officer and vice president at ANSYS, Inc.—a computer-aided engineering software developer—and serves as an industry board member at the University of Pittsburgh. Previously, he was managing director at UBS. Sinha has developed cloud solutions for improving end user experience, managed customer care and technical support for Microsoft and Yahoo, and served as CIO for a billion-dollar corporation. He also actively gives back to the IT community, helps develop his peers, writes for industry publications, and speaks at industry conferences.
