A Unique Relationship born of Heritage and the Common Belief in the Power of Entrepreneurship
The relationship between Bangkok University and Babson College is firmly rooted in history. It began in 1967 when Bangkok University’s founder, the late Mr. Surat Osathanugrah, became the first Thai student to ever attend class at Babson. Highly regarded as one of Thailand’s most successful entrepreneurs and philanthropists, Mr. Osathanugrah later saw a unique opportunity for Bangkok University to work with Babson in order to pioneer an entrepreneurship-centric business education that, in his view, would be vital to Thailand’s sustainable economic development. Today, his vision manifests in the exclusive Bangkok University - Babson College Partnership that represents the most important milestone of our two institutions’ collaboration.
