Ms. Socheata Kim, earned her BA in Business Administration, from The National University of Management, majoring in Management, in 2003.  She continued her studies at Ryukoku University, Kyoto, Japan, from 2007 to 2010 and was awarded a Master’s Degree in Research and Arts in Economics. Her major focus in graduate school was in the field work of Economics and Education “The Correlation between Education Achievement and Economic Behavior”.

In the middle of 2010 she returned to Cambodia to begin her career in higher education. For the past few years she has been a faculty member at The Royal University of Phnom Penh, NUM and now here at Paragon IU where she is the Head of the Business Department. Besides her administrative duties, Ms. Socheata also teaches several business core courses that include: Principles of Management I, Principles of Management II, Public Relations, Organizational Behavior, Business Essentials, Business Ethics, as well as upper-division courses such as Economics and Asian Markets, International Business, and Research Methodology.
Hence I’m currently pursuing another degree Master of Arts in Clinical Counseling Psychology hopefully to finish early 2021.
