The university is led by the Brothers of St. Gabriel foundation, which have been active in education in Thailand since 1901.
Assumption University is a non-profit institution administered by the Brothers of St. Gabriel, a worldwide Catholic religious order, founded in France in 1705 by St. Louis Marie De Montfort, devoted to education and philanthropic activities.
