Sasin School of Management

Sasin School of Management of Chulalongkorn University, founded in 1982, was developed in collaboration between Chulalongkorn University (Thailand's oldest and most prestigious university), the Kellogg School of Management, and The Wharton School.

Sasin achieved AACSB accreditation in 2010, becoming the first business school in Thailand to receive international accreditation. EQUIS (EFMD) accreditation followed later in 2010; making Sasin School of Management, again, the first business school in Thailand to attain this accreditation. Sasin remains the only graduate school of business in Thailand to earn both accreditations.

Currently, Sasin focuses its programs around transformative action learning. This involves students working in groups to meet real-world challenges, implement solutions, and reflect on results. This encourages students to challenge and change their assumptions and beliefs, and transform their thinking and their business outlook. Sasin's programs are built around the twin pillars of sustainability and entrepreneurship. Sasin was an early advocate of sustainability, by incorporating sustainability management into its core curriculum. Furthermore, the school continues to promote the practical implementation of sustainability throughout Thailand and across the region.

In 2002, Sasin launched Bangkok Business Challenge (BBC), a startup competition aimed initially at postgraduate entrepreneurs in this region. By 2008, this competition was global: Thailand's only global postgraduate startup competition and Asia’s longest-running global postgraduate startup competition.
