A flexible program. Full-time and Part-time options. Choose your pace.
Sasin welcomes applications from graduates in all fields who are interested in pursuing an MBA degree. If you hold a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from a Thai university or from an international institution of recognized standing, you are eligible for consideration.Prior study in business or economics is not a requirement for admission! In fact, most Sasin students come from non-business degree backgrounds. Their undergraduate majors include graduates from engineering, science, technology, social sciences, and the humanities. Although coursework in calculus is not required, a solid foundation in quantitative skills is expected. Application Guide: This guide explains how to apply for Sasin’s programs (Flexible MBA, Executive MBA, DBA, Math for Managers course), including how to complete the application form and provide supporting documents.
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 strive 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,
- the quality of your application essays,
- your letter of recommendation,
- and your GMAT or GRE, and where appropriate, TOEFL or IELTS scores.
We highly value full-time professional experience. We’ve found that applicants with full-time work experience tend to have greater maturity and self-awareness. These qualities contribute significantly to future success. On average, Sasin MBA students have three years of meaningful work experience and demonstrate clear management potential. However, we do not preclude applications from exceptional younger applicants with little full-time work experience, provided they can demonstrate maturity and an ability to contribute to the class learning experience. However, a minimum of one-year full-time work experience is required.
Interviews are required for admission to the Sasin Flexible MBA Program. Interviews are normally conducted with representatives of Sasin faculty, administrators, and alumni. We have found that interviews provide essential insights into applicants’ abilities and motivation to complete the Flexible MBA program. Interviews also provide you with an opportunity to discuss the Sasin Flexible MBA program and raise questions of concern. We can also 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 online application has been submitted to the Admissions Office.
