The World to Sasin: Sasin to the World

Exposure to international business, multiple cultures, and global business problems is essential to creating successful business leaders.

Prof. Evan Douglas, from Griffith University in Australia, teaches a Sasin course on entrepreneurship.

Sasin MBA integrates an international perspective throughout the program, almost every course will involve international examples, cases, and perspectives. Students have many opportunities to learn about global business practices and develop international contacts within their class and within the faculty.

In addition, Sasin offers some more in-depth international experiences.

Global Initiatives in Management (GIM)

This elective course is offered in the second year of your program. The course allows students to study a specific industry in a specific country.

First, they learn about business in that industry and country from business leaders at Sasin. Then they visit the country to conduct first-hand business research. On return to Sasin, students compile practical management analyses of all they have studied and experienced. These become resources for other students, for faculty, and for alumni (details on Global Initiatives in Management).
