Siang

Field Instructor at a U.S. Comapny
"This four-month program inspired me to become a lifelong learner. It motivated me to know things that I used to ignore before. The most important thing is that it built my confidence so that I am ready to face my new chapter in life. And I will always be proud of myself for being a graduate of Parami."

1st cohort alumni – sai k

Sai K

Auditor at Yoma Bank
"Parami taught me and other students to be responsible citizens of the country, in terms of not being ignorant of the world and its issues. Skills like critical thinking can be used in further research, no matter what we do in the future."
1st cohort alumni – than toe aung

Than Toe Aung

Research Assistant to Timothy Simonson (Ph.D. Candidate, SOAS)
"The most important thing I learned at Parami is science. Coming from a background of political science, there are a lot of things that are best explained by science, which I can relate back to my own field of study. Studying science and evolution theory helps me understand politics so much better."

Congratulations again to our first cohort!

All our alumni looking for jobs have gained job placements right after graduation and are now working in various local and international companies, including Yoma Bank, CB Bank and Khayay School. We are very pleased to see our graduates earning, on average, at least 1.5 times more than the average monthly salary of K480,000 earned by those in mid-level management in Myanmar. Our other graduates plan to further their studies in graduate schools.
