Master of International Customs Law and Administration – 2011
Current Job Position: Independent Consultant
As my work tends to be in the specialist area of Customs Reform and Modernization and, increasingly, in trade facilitation the topics covered in the course genuinely helped me expand my overall background knowledge thus giving me more confidence and structure in the approach to my work. Also, in these circles, the CCES/University of Canberra Master is held in high esteem and it has brought me recognition and work opportunities at the highest level.
