About the school
The School of Management (SOM) provides students with flexible study options, at either of AIT’s campuses, or even while students continue to work wherever they are in Asia, attending live classes in the evenings and/or weekends via the Zoom platform.
SOM was established in 1987 to meet the growing need in Asia for graduate management education. In line with AIT’s mission, our goal within SOM is to impact the quality of management education and practices in the Asia-Pacific region. We prepare corporate managers and leaders to face the most pressing challenges of our time.

Why study at our school
A message from the dean
On behalf of all our faculty, staff, and students, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the School of Management.
As Dean, I am honored and proud of the Asian Institute of Technology’s transformational education, building on our six-decade history of enriching business and societies across Asia and the world. This tradition centers on incorporating problem-solving in complex issues, especially relating to technology and its application – skills that today’s business community consistently identifies as a requirement that is of critical importance to the future.
Our ever-growing selection of management programs help prepare students to become executives who have the intellectual curiosity and associated skills necessary to meet our changing world’s complexities. An example of this is the infusion of courses that relate to the way analytics and technology is re-shaping the business world.
I believe in the power of education in transforming students’ lives and impacting the communities they engage with, both during and after their studies. To do that, experiential learning and analysis are the foundation for good business practices, and both serve as the basis of our curriculum.
We are fortunate to be based in the heart of a city with a profusion of warmth, color, energy, and diversity. Bangkok is a magnet for food, culture, entrepreneurship, tourism, healthcare, and a Southeast Asian center for start-ups. SOM itself is becoming a more prominent player on the regional and global scale, with our programs ranked at the highest levels (such as the top-ranked MBA by QS in 2021). Here, students can embark on their journey towards success in a host of industries, while making lifelong friends. I wish you a very pleasant start to that journey.
