Applying to Sasin’s Executive MBA Program

Sasin welcomes applications from graduates in all fields who are interested in management study.

You are eligible to apply if you have:

  • a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from a Thai university or an international institution of recognized standing,
  • at least 7 years management/professional experience, this is normally measured from when you obtained your first degree,
    • or, at least 5 years experience, if you have Master’s degree
    • or, at least 3 years experience, if you have a Ph.D. or equivalent

Prior Study in Business not Required! 

Most Sasin students come from non-business degree backgrounds. Our students include graduates from all fields: engineering, science, technology, social sciences, the humanities, etc.

What Do We Look for?

Sasin looks for students with outstanding potential for leadership as well as the intellectual and interpersonal skills needed to make a meaningful contribution to the academic and extra-curricular life of Sasin. We aim to form a dynamic and diverse student body, representing many countries, cultures, personalities, backgrounds, and career aspirations.

Sasin looks for applicants who demonstrate:

  • leadership potential,
  • the intellectual and interpersonal skills to make meaningful contributions in the classroom and beyond,
  • diversity, dynamism, and creativity;
  • commitment and a “can-do” attitude.

To complete your application, you’ll need all sorts of documentation. But, assuming you have already received an undergraduate degree, we urge you to start the application process and be assigned an Admissions Advisor. He, or she, will help you through the process.

We will evaluate your:

  • scholastic ability for graduate study,
  • your transcripts from your previous educational endeavors,
  • qualities of character and motivation, and evidence of leadership,
  • your societal concern and involvement,
  • your career plans 
  • why you chose Sasin,
  • your references,
  • and where appropriate, Sasin English Proficiency Test/TOEFL scores,
  • and, above all, your management experience: particularly your current role and responsibilities

We will review all aspects of your application to assess you compared to our overall pool of applicants. Admission is not driven by any single measure, but rather by the overall constellation of activities and achievements that your express.

A diverse, experienced class

For the benefit of participants, their sponsoring organizations and the program itself, we will make every attempt to build a diverse class.

All participants will have comparable managerial responsibilities but will be exercising those responsibilities in a wide-range of environments. You can expect your class to have very diverse skills, backgrounds, and experiences.

As we assess your application, we will be asking:

  • do you have a position of executive responsibility?
  • …or will you soon have such a position?
  • would that position be furthered by the Executive MBA program
  • do you have the time, and the motivation, to make a 16-month commitment to attend classes and prepare assignments?
  • for sponsored candidates, does your sponsor consider that you have outstanding promise and potential within your organization?

The GMAT test is not required for admission, but Executive MBA participants will need a certain level of quantitative background. Assessment of international degrees is based on the characteristics of the national system of education, the type of institution attended, and the level of studies completed.

Test of English language ability
Proficiency in reading, listening, writing and speaking English is essential. Classes and group work require strong language skills.

All non-native English speaking applicants are required to take an English Proficiency Test administered by Sasin.

Applicants may submit their scores on TOEFL iBT (Internet-based Testing) or TOEFL CBT (Computer-based Testing) and be exempted from the Sasin English Proficiency Test.


Interviews are required for admission to the Executive MBA Program. Interviews are normally conducted with representatives of Sasin faculty, administrators, and alumni. We have found that interviews provide additional insight into applicants’ abilities and motivation to complete the Executive MBA program.

Interviews also provide you an opportunity to discuss the Sasin Executive MBA program and raise questions of concern. We can arrange interviews outside of Thailand, sometimes face-to-face with our representatives, or via Sasin’s video-conferencing facilities.

Interviews, whether on campus or elsewhere, will be arranged and conducted only after the application and all supporting documents have been submitted to the Admissions Office.
