Kate Socatiyanurak, Thailand
Hi, my name is Kate Socatiyanurak from Bangkok, Thailand, and I’m a student in MSc Management and Strategy at LSE. Before coming to LSE, I did my undergraduate degree in economics at Chulalongkorn University back home, but my high-school studies were completed in England. During summer breaks in the past three years, I have interned at the Ministry of Finance of Thailand, Siam Piwat (a department store company), and King Power (a duty-free company), all of which are based in Bangkok. As my long-time interest lies within the luxury fashion management field, my work experience has only developed this interest further. My decision to do MSc Management and Strategy, which is a managerial economics degree, is due to LSE’s excellence in economics teaching that will equip me to stand out in the luxury fashion management sector as a brand manager with an economics lens.
So far, my experience at LSE has been beyond expectation; so many components at the school have made it an amazing place to be: stellar professors, engaging cohorts, interesting societies and events, campus location, and the list just goes on!
