“This is an amazing programme that I would recommend. I was able to develop the skills I’d hoped for including Cultural Intelligence and leadership.

“I have identified more of my own core and flex as in development of my Cultural Intelligence. I have got a clearer picture of how leadership should be and a goal for me to be a leader after understanding and expressing myself boldly.”

Bangkok University is one of the oldest and most famous private universities in Thailand under the patronage of the Bangkok University Foundation. The University has operated since 1962 with A.Surat and A.Pongtip Osatanugrah’s resolution to found a non-profit private university as a centre of knowledge to develop modern graduates with knowledge and practical skills to serve the country in the future. Thousands of graduates from BU have served not only Thailand but also the global community at large. That copiously results from the fact that the University has strived for quality education to empower students in terms of theoretical knowledge and practical work skills. To date, quality education at BU is made possible through highly qualified faculty, efficient supporting staff, modern technology, stimulating learning environment, and international cooperation.
