Dr. Roger Levermore
Assoc. Professors of Management Practice
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the School of Management on behalf of all our faculty, staff, and students within the School of Management.
As dean, I am honored and proud of the transformational education offered at the Asian Institute of Technology, building on our six-decade history of enriching businesses and societies across Asia and the world. This tradition centers on incorporating problem-solving complex engineering and environmental issues – skills that today’s business community consistently identifies as being a requirement that is of critical importance to the future of the industry.
Our management programs help prepare students to become executives who have the intellectual curiosity and associated skills necessary to meet the complexities of our changing world. This fits with AIT’s mission to
develop highly qualified and committed business professionals who play leading roles in the region’s sustainable development and its integration into the global economy.
I believe in the power of education in transforming students’ lives and impacting the communities that they engage with during and after their studies. To do that, experiential learning and analysis are the foundation for good business practice, and both serve as the basis of our MBA curriculum. In addition, we engage with other disciplines (such as those in the School of Engineering and School of Environment Resources and Development) and collaborate with local, regional, and global businesses to increase our impact across industry and society.
We are fortunate to be based in a city that has a profusion of warmth, color, energy, and diversity, and one that is becoming a more prominent player on the regional and global scale. Bangkok is a magnet for food, culture, entrepreneurship, tourism, healthcare, and a Southeast Asian center for start-ups.
