National Institute of Development Administration, NIDA Business School

Established in 1966, the Graduate School of Business Administration or NIDA Business School,  was the first school in Thailand to have offered an MBA program. It has since continuously dedicated all of its resources and expertise to providing only graduate level business education. The School has put more MBA graduates into professional positions at global companies in Thailand and in the Thai public sector than any other MBA program in Thailand. The National Institute of Development Administration was established following His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej's vision of advancing Thailand's development through the establishment of an advanced graduate educational institution to prepare people to become agents of change for national development. The inception of NIDA Business School grew out of His Majesty the King's discussions of the country's development with Mr. David Rockefeller of the Rockefeller Foundation in the United States of America in 1963. As a result, NIDA Business School was established on April 1, 1966. We constantly research and disseminate knowledge with support of our business networks and international partnerships to prepare graduate students to become leaders who concern about their society and can cope with changes in their environments and organizations effectively. Our vision is to be a leading business school in Asia, focusing on academic excellence and business leader preparation.
