Center for International Affairs

The Center for International Affairs (CIA) serves as a strategic unit of Thammasat Business School in building global collaborations with well-respected institutions, promoting international recognitions and providing professional services for faculty members, scholars and students regarding international exchange & internship programs, research initiatives and non-academic activities.  Our mission is to equip TBS students with life-long learning competencies in a globally rich, diverse culture and to enable TBS faculty to explore international opportunities in both academic and teaching experiences.


Thammasat Business School is the ONLY business school in Thailand selected to join a prestigious community of leading business schools – Partnership in International Management (PIM) or a consortium of top business schools from around the world that exchanges top – quality undergraduate and graduate students between Thammasat Business School and top-tier partner universities.
Thammasat University is the ONLY university in Thailand that has officially developed institutional partnerships with the University of California Systemwide (UC System) for student exchange as well as study abroad programs. It provides the TBS students with unparalleled opportunities to study at one of the 10 UC campuses, such as Berkeley, Los Angeles, etc., build networks and access


TBS has partnered with over 70 well-reputed business schools around the world which allow our students, both undergraduate and graduate students, to study at the selected partner university for one or two semesters by paying the TBS tuition fee rate.  Each year TBS sends over 80 students, most of which are the BBA students, abroad and receives around 75 incoming foreign exchange students across continents.  A bundled program between Spring exchange and Summer internship is exclusively offered for incoming exchange students in the Spring semester.  The program provides full-time, non-credit bearing experiences that allow the students to gain a true cultural and professional immersion in international organizations or multinational corporations.  The Center will facilitate the entire process of the internship application, ranging from counseling, company selection, visa extension and informal orientation, provisional that the students are officially accepted by the hosting organizations.
