What were you doing before the MCL?

I completed my undergraduate studies both in law and economics. Subsequently, I finished my first master’s degree in tax law. I am also a qualified barrister in Thailand. Before joining the MCL, I worked for an international financial institution for nine years where I developed an interest in corporate-oriented and commercial issues. I was also a guest lecturer on corporate and commercial law.

What were your impressions of the MCL?

The MCL course, which is designed to provide interdisciplinary offerings in law, business and economics and practical insights, was ideal for me. Additionally, MCL was unique because I had the opportunity to learn from world class lecturers and professionals. The instructors are very open-minded and keep encouraging students to come up with innovative ideas. The MCL’s small class size enabled me to be fully engaged in class discussion and establish warm friendship with friends coming from around the world. The opportunity of being part of collegiate system of University of Cambridge opened up my intellectual horizons and provided the opportunity for invaluable experiences. The MCL was the ultimate destination to flourish both personally and academically and would be for others an unforgettably life-changing experience.

What are your post-MCL plans and have they changed due to taking the MCL?

Following my graduation from Cambridge, I aspire to become a top executive of the company. In the meantime, my top priority is to share all the knowledge I have acquired during my time in Cambridge. I am also greatly determined to develop the law and economy of my country to help others to have a better life.
