Let's hear the real story, our first batch of Management Associates speaking to you!


“As an MA, I have always experienced such spirit since the very first day. Having been studying Finance and Accounting for years, I had always limited myself in this field only without knowing my full potential. Central gives me the opportunity to work with people from different backgrounds and countries and also allows me to find my true self in doing what I’m really interested in.”

HUYEN (Irene)

"At Central Retail, I am given the opportunity to work with passionate people. I experienced as a store staff  to see how hard they tried to deliver the best products, I was trained by Operations managers to know how to manage stores effectively. Moreover, I have always been given precise guidance and strong inspiration by my sponsors and rotation managers."


"I started my MA journey with the Online Marketing role in 6 months and ended up fully understanding of how online marketing works and how it earns profit for the business. A unique privilege you can get from the MA program is the opportunity to work with and to be coached by top management. I got inspired to not just do what been told but to think and make change."
