In order to continue its goal of fostering good relations between its alumni and current students, the Social Science Division held its “2nd Social Science Student & Alumni Meeting” on November 22, 2017 at the Seminar Room.
Seven alumni talked about the challenges they faced after graduation and shared with the audience the valuable lessons they have learned. Some of them went straight to graduate school while the rest immediately began their respective careers soon after they graduated from MUIC. A current student on her last trimester also joined the panel to talk about her student activities and the scholarship she received for graduate studies in the UK.
Mr. William Jones, one of the Program Directors of the Division, gave the opening remarks while Mr. Kanapat Chalermpanth, another alumnus who used to work for the British Embassy in Bangkok, served as moderator.
