Why I chose my major

My decision to choose my major stems from my work experience in the retail and fashion brand management industry for the past 10 years. I have always been interested in and passionate about consumer behavior in the fashion industry. After having a chance to work as an adjunct lecturer in Bina Nusantara Industry while working as a professional, I made up my mind to pursue a Ph.D. in international merchandising.

What I like most about FACS

The diversity of the college is incredible. You can get resources from many different professors in a variety of fields.

Post-graduation plans

I have accepted an assistant professor (tenure track) position at the University of Missouri – Textile and Apparel Management Department under the College of Human Environmental Sciences, beginning in fall 2020.
