It provided me the opportunity to learn skills other than what is taught in the classroom,” said Kaung Myat Ahkar, 3rd year law student from Dagon University and SCG Internship participant in 2015. “Over the course of the month, I was able to see first-hand how a company working to global standards operates, and received valuable advice from my mentor”.

Participants are paired with a senior mentor from SCG, who provides advice and guide, as well as give one-to-one support.
