Masters of Business Administration (MBA)

SOM offers one of the top-ranking MBA programs in Thailand, with the QS Global MBA Rankings 2021 placing it at #1 in Thailand, #14 in Asia and top #110 globally. The program also has a ranking of #7 in diversity in Asia (as our diverse gender and nationality split of faculty and students illustrates), and #18 in return on investment worldwide.

Our MBA program encourages participatory learning and uses a variety of interactive learning methodologies to educate students on the latest management concepts, techniques, and tools. More importantly, it helps them develop an attitude of listening to and understanding others, holistic thinking, collective decision making, communication, and the art of negotiation.

Designed to equip students with effective, practical tools to tackle complex, real-life business challenges, our interdisciplinary program combines elements from operations management, economics, finance, strategy, marketing, leadership, and other management fields, and aims to create the strategic leaders of tomorrow’s corporate future, within the scope of the pan-Asian and global arenas.

Value

School of Management students are members of and have access to a unique, and the richly diverse international community that enables our students to learn from cross-cultural and multiple disciplinary faculty. They study, live and work alongside students from across Asia and around the world. The level of teamwork and collaboration fostered in this type of community prepares them to take these skill sets with them, as they join the extensive Asian Institute of Technology global alumni network.
