You are cordially invited to the Sasin Student Recognition Reception on Thursday 12th July, 12:00 – 13:00, in Sasin Hall (9th Floor, Sasa Patasala Building) to recognize those students who so tirelessly represented Sasin in external competitions in the 2011/2012 academic year.

This was another fine year for Sasin’s teams! Three teams competed in international new venture business plan competitions this year, with two teams selected to represent Sasin on the national and international stage and with one team continuing on to compete this past academic year from having won qualifying competitions the prior year. All 3 teams were extremely competitive against, and indeed they beat representatives from some of the top schools in the world. Our teams have made Sasin very proud and should be well congratulated.
