Message from the President
Assumption University has been providing education to the youth of the Thai and other nations since 1969. The University employs English as the official medium of instruction and has formal links and cooperation agreements with a large network of international institutions of higher learning for scholastic exchange and research programs. The University is administered by the Montfort Brothers of St. Gabriel, a worldwide Catholic Religious Order devoted to education and philanthropic activities. The Congregation operates 15 educational institutions in Thailand.
The University has a student body of about 19,870 including a fairly large complement of foreign students drawn from 75 countries of the world. It also has a high caliber faculty, a truly international community of scholars and professionals representing diverse academic disciplines, different fields of business and many government organs and these arrangements help considerably in bringing students into close touch with pragmatic aspects of life.
The University is fully accredited and supervised by the Office of the Commission on Higher Education, the Ministry of Education and its graduates enjoy the privileges accorded to State University graduates. Its academic standards are accepted by the Civil Service Commission of Thailand. Assumption University is recognized in the U.S.A. and other countries and transfer of credits from the University is accepted by many foreign universities. AU Graduates can pursue advanced degrees anywhere in the world.
The administrators fully appreciate that it is the function of a university to contribute actively to the sustainable development. It is the most important factor in economic and social growth, determining the success and failure of businesses. Thus we consistently pursue two main goals, namely, first to preserve, refine and advance knowledge through imaginative scholarship and second, to transmit that knowledge to our students through effective teaching and dissemination.
Rev. Bro. Bancha Saenghiran, f.s.g. Ph. D.
