You can go on exchange during the summer, autumn or spring semester. You don’t have to have a background in business studies in order to join to program, as you can take introductory courses if needed. Introductory courses are called Foundation Courses and there are 5 such courses offered (see curriculum page 10). The MBA program has nine different areas of specialization (groups). You can choose courses freely from both core and elective courses. You can choose 3–5 MBA courses per semester. In addition, MBA students can also choose BBA courses as long as the total number of courses per semester is not more than 6. Courses are offered in a cycle according to this course plan. The final course offering will be available at the start of the semester.
Elective courses and some selective core courses will generally be organized only if there are enough participants. There is, therefore, no guarantee that they will take place. When preparing their study plan, students are advised to have a plan B. Students can influence which elective courses are organized. After you have applied through Asia Exchange, you should contact Siam University about your course selection as soon as convenient (approximately 3 months before the semester starts). There is a set schedule for core courses but the elective courses are organized based on students’ wishes. When choosing the elective courses, you should take special care to classify your selections into two categories: those courses that you really need to take and those that you would like to take.
