About the School of Management
Established in Bangkok in 1959, the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) has become a leading regional institution and is actively working with public and private sector partners throughout the region and with some of the top universities in the world. We promote technological change and sustainable development in the Asian-Pacific region in our classrooms, research, and outreach.
Recognized for its multinational, multicultural ethos, the Asian Institute of Technology has ranked as having the strongest international orientation in the world for the past two years.
The School of Management (SOM) provides students with the option of studying at either our dynamic campus located in the heart of Bangkok or on our beautiful self-contained international main campus located 40km (25 miles) north of the city.
The School of Management was established in 1987 to meet the growing needs in Asia for graduate management education. In line with AIT’s mission, our goal within the School of Management is to impact the quality of management education and practices in Asia-Pacific region, and around the world, to promote sustainable development, technological leadership, entrepreneurial spirit, wealth creation, and pride. We prepare corporate leaders to face the most pressing social, economic, political and technological challenges of our time. Given our long history of creating both social and business impact, we provide a unique competitive advantage to managers and future leaders in the region and around the world. The Times Higher Education Rankings, which looks at global universities’ commitment and performance in furthering the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) just ranked the Asian Institute of Technology in the top 20 universities globally.
Our mission within the School of Management is to build on long-standing core AIT competencies in technology, development, sustainability and to leverage the diverse backgrounds of our faculty and community. We want to help develop students to become future-focused, problem-solving, open-minded, collaborative and critical thinkers capable of contributing to the development of industry across the region and ultimately solving complex global challenges facing humanity.
We aspire to be the leading international management school in the region, delivering excellent relevant education that transforms the skills and mindsets of those we encounter in a culture where lifelong learning opportunities thrive.
