Unilever Touchpoint is an exclusive event in which the company invited graduates from top universities in Thailand to learn more about Unilever’s purposes, brands, functions, and career opportunities. This one-day event was held in Unilever’s new head office in Rama 9, Bangkok. This year, two of our MBA students were selected to attend it. Collaborating with Unilever Thailand, the MBA-MUIC program hopes that all the lessons the students have learned in the event may enhance their life-long learning and help influence their future.
What our students say:
Mr. Tanut Leechankul
“I have learned much about the company, what they do, and their agile working culture. We had interactive sessions with the main departments, enjoyed a networking lunch with the board of directors, had a fun mini-case session, and listened to the speech from the first and only woman CEO of Unilever Thailand, Ms. Supattra Paopiamsap. I was impressed by her speech and the question-and-answer sessions, as she has a strong sense of leadership and a kind-hearted personality. She is very open and bright.”
Ms. Tuangporn Leowarin
“It was a great pleasure to have this unforgettable opportunity to learn and interact with one of the top consumer goods company in the world. I felt so inspired to be responsible for society and to use our knowledge and abilities to perform good deeds for a better life and better environment just like what Unilever aims for. I have learned that Unilever aspires to be a second home for its employees, and is not only aiming for profits but to offer long-term benefits for its stakeholders, including society at large. Unilever has been developing and altering the way it conducts business to minimize waste and maximize efficiency in all of its operations for both inside and outside across all organizations activities. The company has achieved an impressive global zero waste to landfill and many other projects that help the local communities around the globe.”
