After you’ve developed your core skill sets, your own interests will drive your learning. Project-driven courses will allow you to focus on the areas, issues, and industries that directly concern you. Your choice of project puts you in the driver’s seat. While most courses will require individual assignments, action learning involves frequent study groups and teamwork.
The Executive MBA includes two residential sessions. The first, towards the start of your program, is a weekend team building event held in Thailand. The second, towards the end of your program, is a required, two-week International Residential at one of Sasin’s leading partner schools outside of Thailand, with selected digital-themed courses covering the latest developments in marketing, operations, finance, and leadership. During the two-week International Residential, participants complete the equivalent of three Sasin courses, meet other international executives, and participate in site visits.
Through our collaboration with the University of Salzburg Business School (SMBS), Sasin EMBA students and alumni now have the opportunity to participate in a number of optional international modules. The optional international modules currently include Lomonosov Moscow State University in Russia, University of Westminster in the United Kingdom, Fudan University in China, York University and the University of Toronto in Canada. While Sasin Executive MBA students who satisfactorily complete a module will earn 6 Sasin credits, Sasin alumni who satisfactorily complete a module will receive a certificate of participation issued by the host institution. The participants pay the same tuition fee as other courses at Sasin; however, all other expenses such as travel and living expenses are the participants’ own responsibility.
