If you are somewhere near the end of your formal education and are already thinking about a career, this is an exciting time to be entering the job market. As usual, competition is fierce, no less during these troubled times and after you are awarded your BA, it is time for a couple of years of work experience before thinking about further qualifications.

What is an MBA?

The full title is ‘Master of Business Administration’ and this qualification is perfect for those who wish to enter into business management, as the 2-year full-time course contains many aspects of business administration and also includes a summer of internship, when you gain that valuable hands-on experience. The total length of the MBA study (called บริหารอินเตอร์ in Thai) would be 20 months, if studying full time, although there are distance learning programs that can be studied in the evenings and weekends. Of course, you must gain a BA before moving on to a master’s degree

Wide Range of Topics

There are many courses that come under the umbrella of a master’s degree, such as the following:

  • Business administration
  • Business enterprise
  • Marketing management
  • Accounting and management
  • Digital marketing
  • International logistics

The year spent abroad offers many benefits, not least the level of English you would gain from living with a foreign family, plus the active learning strategy helps students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
