SIFE Students Excel



The Mahidol University International College (MUIC) chapter of Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) has been engaged in several projects in Nakho rn Pathom, Ayutthaya and Prathum Thani Provinces over the past year, all in an effort to create economic opportunities for others and raise their standard of living.

The SIFE members recently participated in the 2009 SIFE Thailand National Exhibition on July 13-15 at the Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration at Chulalongkorn University. Representatives from 23 universities were required to submit a written annual report and deliver a 20-minute presentation on their projects in a competition that would decide the best SIFE chapter in Thailand.

Chulalongkorn University won the competition and will represent Thailand at the World Cup in Berlin, Germany, in October. However, MUIC handily won second place, an impressive achievement inasmuch as this was only the second year that it had participated in the competition.

The MUIC chapter also won awards for best performance in the preliminary, quarter and semi-final rounds as well as an award for financial literacy, which was presented by the Stock Exchange of Thailand. In addition, Ms. Saranya Laohavoravudhikul received a trophy and 5,000 Baht for best introductory speech and Dr. Chairawee Anamthawat was designated best faculty advisor; she will attend the international competition in Berlin as an observer.
