Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration of Chulalongkorn University is an AACSB and EQUIS accredited business school founded in 1982 through a collaboration among Chulalongkorn University, the pre-eminent university in Thailand, and what were to become two of the leading business schools in the world: the Kellogg School of Management and the Wharton Business School. Sasin became the first school in Thailand to receive AACSB accreditation in 2010 and the first to receive EQUIS EFMD accreditation in 2011.

Meaning of name[edit]

His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej bestowed the name on the Graduate Institute of Business Administration, on his 60th birthday, December 5, 1987. The name comes from two Sanskrit words: sasa and indra. Sasa, meaning "rabbit" represents His Majesty's birth year in the Thai 12-year astrological cycle. Indra means "chief." Thus "Sasin" literally means "King of the Rabbits."


Sasin pioneered the use of world-class visiting professors complemented by full-time Sasin faculty and other experts in Southeast Asia.
