I believe studying in Thailand will open doors to many future opportunities. Stamford was the best choice for me because the truly international environment allowed me to understand different perspectives. The experience I had here actually helped me form the basis for my own company.
Edwin Willems, NetherlandsFounder of ASIAN – ARTISAN : Stamford MBA Student
I decided to study with Stamford because I was looking forward to exchanging experiences with international and local people. As an electrical engineer, the MBA program helps me to get a better understanding of financial aspects and also helps develop strategies for business.
Bernd Büchler, GermanyManager Technical Services of Rodenstock Thailand : Stamford MBA Student
I want to pursue my studies in an international environment where I can witness, and be part of, diversity and globalization. I am very pleased with the professors and their “non-traditional” way of teaching at Stamford, where learning is not all about textbooks but it is practical, involving interactive classes and discussions.
