After a while, all the clich?s about MBA programs in Asia begin to blend together. At Sasin, in the heart of Bangkok, Thailand, they happen to be TRUE! But what really sets Sasin's MBA program apart from the others is that students genuinely love THE SASIN MBA THAILAND EXPERIENCE.

The MBA Thailand Founding Partnership: Kellogg, Wharton and Chulalongkorn University

Sasin's MBA program is a full-time, 2-year management program, developed by a collaboration of Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School and Thailand's most well-known academic institute, Chulalongkorn University.

The MBA students represent the very best minds in Southeast Asia: many go on to become successful entrepreneurs, or to assume leadership positions in major multinational corporations, in consulting firms, or in government.

They are taught by visiting professors from many world-class programs—including those from our founding partners, Kellogg and Wharton—as well as by Sasin's full-time faculty and other experts in Thailand and Southeast Asia. The Sasin MBA curriculum and all faculty appointments continue to be reviewed and endorsed by Kellogg School of Management.

The MBA program is delivered in English, in Bangkok, Thailand—the heart of Southeast Asia. Courses are scheduled in six 5-week modules each year.
