Applying to Sasin’s MBA Program
Sasin welcomes applications from graduates in all fields who are interested in management study. If you hold a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from a Thai university or an international institution of recognized standing, you are eligible for consideration.
Prior study in business or economics is not a requirement for admission! Most Sasin students come from non-business degree backgrounds. Our students include graduates from engineering, science, technology, social sciences and the humanities.
Although course work in calculus is not required, a solid foundation in quantitative skills is expected.
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.
We will evaluate your:
- scholastic ability for graduate study,
- your transcripts from your previous educational endeavors,
- qualities of character and motivation,
- evidence of leadership,
- societal concern and involvement,
- management promise,
- quality of your application essays,
- your references,
- and your GMAT, and where appropriate, TOEFL scores.
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.
We will attempt to evaluate your potential for a management career through a careful review of experience and accomplishments in full-and-part time work settings, including your extracurricular activities.
We highly value full-time professional experience. We have found that work experience adds to applicants’ maturity and-self-awareness. These contribute significantly to success.
On average, Sasin MBA students have had three years of meaningful work experience and demonstrate clear management potential.
We do not preclude applications from exceptional younger applicants with little work experience, provided they can demonstrate maturity and ability to contribute to their class learning experience. However, a minimum of one-year full-time work experience is required.
Interviews are required for admission to the 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 MBA program.
Interviews also provide you an opportunity to discuss the Sasin 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.
Sasin usually offers two admissions windows:
- Early Admissions (Round 1): you need to submit your completed application by mid-November (for exact dates see below),
- Regular Admissions (Round 2): you need to submit your completed application by the end of January (exact dates see below),
The sooner you apply, the sooner you’ll know you’re successful, and the sooner you can snag your place!
If you have most of your application documents ready, we strongly urge you to apply in Round 1. Spaces are limited.
