Global Initiatives in Management | Exchange Programs

Applying for Exchange Programs

Sasin Flexible MBA students and Dual MBA and M.Eng students usually apply for an exchange program in their first year.

If there’s an exchange spot available, and you haven’t already gone on an exchange, it’s possible to apply in your second year…but it’s really best to apply in your first year.

The exchange period will either be in the first or second academic year depending on the exchange partner school. 

Eligibility for Exchanges

All MBA students and Dual MBA and M.Eng students are eligible to apply for exchanges. Exchange applicants must go through an exchange ranking process.  The exchange ranking process is during August – October. There may be other requirements depending on the exchange partner school. For more information, contact the Student Affairs Office at

You will need to apply through Sasinware (Sasin intranet) when the exchange selection process starts – an announcement will be made by the Student Affairs Office.  Exchange applicants are ranked based upon their GPA and interview scores.  The highest ranked gets to choose first!

We usually have enough exchange program places for everyone who wants to go for exchange. But if you want to go on one of the more popular exchanges, you’ll need to be ranked highly: so keep that GPA up and polish your interviewing skills.
