If your future goal is to start your own business, there is no better way to prepare yourself for the many business areas you will need to master to become a successful business person. In just two years you will become well versed in all business areas, able to analyze business issues in a whole new way.

At Payap University you don't just learn business from text books. We are continuously building contacts with a diverse group of businesses in Chiang Mai as a way for our students to gain hands on practical experience by interacting with these business owners and leaders.

The MBA department also sponsors an ongoing series of lectures from business leaders who are from various disciplines and from many countries to enrich the learning experience of our students and provide them with the opportunity to build future business contacts and create opportunities.

As a professional degree, the MBA will prepare you for an increasingly global business environment and will provide you with a large choice of career options in addition to benefiting your existing career. You will learn marketing, organizational management, finance, and business strategy from an Asian perspective, and you will do this all in the English language.
