I am a 2014 VIU graduate with a double MBA major in HR Management and Marketing Management. For me, graduation was the key that opened the door to my professional life. I had the HR experience and passion to develop the employer brand and to solve the problem of employee turnover in Thailand. As the oldest in my family, I have to take on responsibilities in my family’s cosmetics business. Now I use my HR and marketing knowledge helping my father in customer relationship management, as well as doing some market research for more effective product development program.

Studying at VIU helped me to achieve strong business connections with friends from all over the world. Within two days of graduation, I established new export opportunities to African countries and the United States because of the strong VIU global network. My job now is very enjoyable.  My every day work is all about learning new things in the real business world. I am hoping that someday I will get a chance to fulfill my dream of improving HR function by starting my very own company!
