Dusit Thani College (DTC) (Thai: วิทยาลัยดุสิตธานี) is a private institute in Bangkok, Thailand specializing in hospitality and culinary arts management.

History[edit]

In 1993 Dusit Thani College was established as 'The Dusit Thani Hotel School', an addition to the Dusit Thani Group, which owns and operates hotels and resorts. The college is adjacent to one of the group's hotels.

At that time, Thailand had a shortage of manpower, knowledge and experience in the hospitality industry, due in part to a lack of educational institutes and training programmes. Those that existed focused only on theory, offering no practical experience for the students. In addition, there were few industry leaders involved in the academic development of hotel businesses.

Dusit Thani Hotel School was established to meet this need by delivering specialised, practical training for the industry and to support Thailand’s developing hotel business.

At first, two courses were available:

  • Diploma in Hotel Operations
  • Professional Chef Diploma

Dusit Thani Hotel School became the first institute in Thailand to be approved for college status and started to offer undergraduate programs.
