Memorable, excitement, challenges, and bonding. These are a few words, we CST Consulting would use to describe our feelings for our last week in Singapore. On September 7, four aspiring students from BBA Chulalongkorn University embarked on a journey to the NUS-UOB case competition held in Singapore. Known as one of the most challenging case competitions yet, this is the perfect venue where talented business students from renowned universities around the globe are able to showcase their analytical and presentation skills in front a panel of industry judges. The format was extremely challenging this year as students had to “knock-out” the opposing team before proceeding to the next round. In the end, we got “good news” for BBA Chula: CST Consulting was announced to proceed to the final round and finally won the second-runner up title. Throughout the journey, we BBA students did not only discover valuable business insights, but we also got to develop priceless bonding with colleagues from other universities and also among us CST consultants. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to extend our sincere thanks to Ajarn Kritinee, our advisor, who has taught us so much and has always been there for us through the most challenging moments of our life; we would also like to thank BBA Chula for the continuous support in giving a chance for students like us to go abroad and prove to others how we, as Chula students, can also become aspiring business leaders in the future.
