The EMBA program serves mid-career executives preparing for the next level, as well as senior executives who wish to enhance their skills and leadership effectiveness.
This 2 year Executive MBA program is specially designed for promising executives with substantial management experience. The program provides the latest global management tools and concepts, enabling the EMBA participants to develop the managerial competencies essential to operate businesses and other organizations, at the national, regional, and international levels. The program is delivered in English, in Bangkok, Thailand - the heart of Southeast Asia.
As of 2012, the EMBA will be taught on Friday evenings and all day Saturday. Friday overnight accommodation will be available at Sasa House for program participants, at a 50% discount.
This will make the program more convenient for executives who must travel during the week. And, for the first time, will make our program readily accessible for those living outside Bangkok.
Courses are scheduled during six five-week “modules” each year, with participants taking two courses per module. Each course is worth three credit-hours; participants are required to complete a total of twenty-four courses (72 credit hours). For exact module dates see Key Dates. It is taught by visiting professors from many world-class programs as well as by Sasin full-time faculty and other experts in Thailand and Southeast Asia.
While individual assignments are required, study groups and teamwork are essential to the EMBA experience with many class projects assigned to groups, rather than to individuals. EMBA participants typically form groups of five to seven members with diverse academic and/or professional backgrounds. Throughout the program, EMBA students learn how to work effectively with others, enhance their skills in working as part of a team and develop personal friendships and life-long networking.
Classes are normally scheduled on Friday from 18:00 to 21:15 and Saturday from 8:30 to 16:30. Occasionally, make-up classes are held at other times. Regular class attendance is required. Students are expected to attend all sessions of courses for which they are registered and will be allowed to take examinations only if they satisfy an 80% attendance requirement. Participants should expect informal group meeting once or twice a week to work on case studies and should expect to spend at least 15 hours per week in out-of-class study.
