Educating Future Professionals
Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® is an entry level certificate from the Project Management Institute (PMI). This three day course is designed to teach the fundamental knowledge, terminology and processes of effective project management and prepare the student to sit for the CAPM® credential examination.
With help from sponsors and support from ministries, we have created a gateway between PMI and the Universities of Myanmar, with the ambition to improve the skill sets of young students. This project is only a couple of months old and we are proud to have educated 150 students already. Students who now can play a key role in projects both here and internationally and will get even more knowledge and actual work experience thru internships with our current sponsors: Asia Hlaing Kyaw Family and Lychee Media.
Currently, we have signed MoUs with Yezin Agricultural University, Mandalay Technological University (MTU) and Technological University Mandalay (TUM) and are looking forward to make the best of our cooperation.
We would like to thank everyone supporting us so far and hope you will follow us on our mission to take Myanmar’s capabilities to the next level!

Stories from MFC Team - The Road Trip
I am usually pretty good at falling asleep. In busses, airplanes, at train stations, during lectures, sometimes when I don’t even feel tired. But tonight, this was not the case. In the backseat of our office car I sat with eyes closed, squeezing my armrest and quietly cursing the colleague hiring this driver. Honking before every turn and overtaking, he made the obscuring landscape speed by at a pace not recommended on any road in Myanmar. As the night got darker the curses turned to prayers. I prayed for my self, my colleagues, defenseless animals and every car that had to share the road with us. In the backseat I started thinking about my mom, totally unaware of my situation, and promised her that if I survived I would get a driving license and never leave my life in the hand of strangers again. Then, surrounded by fields and jungle covered mountains, Yezin Agricultural University blessed us with it’s presence.
Meeting a little bit shaky and sleep deprived MFC Team was U Naing Kyi Win, Managing Director of the Department of Agricultural Research, as well as H.E. Tin Htut, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock & Irrigation, who immediately brought us coffee. As the caffein brought us back to life, H.E. Tin Htut started the MoU Ceremony with a welcoming speech. Encouraging the students to work hard, dare to take risks, ask questions – and add him on Facebook. Impressed by his passion for development of the agricultural industry, I remember him saying:
“It is soon time for my retirement. But I will never retire from Agriculture.”.
Encouraged by his words and ambition, I decided that whatever driver we chose next time, it would be worth coming back.
