How is Asian Institue of Technology (AIT) Thailand MBA [#permalink] New post 20 Sep 2009, 03:55
Hi Experts,

Could you please provide some insights about MBA in AIT,Thailand ?
This school is listed in top 100 schools in FT Rankings.
I would like to know more information about International reputation and the kind of companies( whether MNCs or Thailand based companies) recruiting in the school.
What about the langauage of communication, is it difficult to survive without knowing mandarin in Thailand?

Thanks!!

sorry for replying so late .. but better late than never

AIT is a nice university , good campus and faculty.
but if u r worried about the placement thing then it is really in its initial stage, actually AIT has an image of socially responsible university and its main source of income is through grants from several countries, so most of the students here are on their country scholarship or university scholarship.

Now as 80% of the students already has the Jobs in their respective countries, AIT dont have a very well developed placement cell(i myself worked with career center of AIT). actually they can cash a lot on their quality, diversity and image but i should say they have not jumped in the blind race of Indian universities to market themselves (thou they are planning to jump soon). So they are pretty much similar to foreign universities, who do give you education but dont assist much on building ur career which is the main concern of students in India.

So i would suggest it will be good for you to MBA from thr if u will be able to get some scholarship from the school (based on your exp. and references ) and if u have a really good work ex. which u can en-cash later on after MBA.

But it will be a great opportunity to get Global, i believe no school in S. Asia has such a diverse cultural base. you will be in the class with more that 20 nationalities. would be studying with people with work ex. ranging from 2 yrs to 20 yrs. Many country wise competitions and games. So it is truly global university and most of the places u will see it as top ranked university, higher than many of Indian reputed schools.

hi exekutive: many years later but i have to help you out.. its not easy doing an MBA.. you could still be looking for a school who will accept you..

well, you are looking at FT rankings, this means you are a quality candidate for your MBA..

AIT isnt a bad institution.. it has pretty high academic requirements.. most MNCs will definitely give you an interview if they know you're from AIT..

but as far as language goes, you need to study Mandarin for at least a year before you come to Thailand.. most people here speak only Mandarin,..

and owing to climate change and the dreadful incident with nuclear reactors in Japan recently, you may also want to bring a heavy coat with you.. it snows at least once every three months in Thailand.. most other times, its a little chilly.. so a heavy coat will work great for you..

Rak B .. I understand your frustration, but AIT has changed a lot since our batch has passed. Management has gone to lot of changes, flood has spoiled the infrastructure, many reputed and good professors have left the organisation (specially Finance).
Regarding placement, I am sure AIT doesn't make any fake promises, I am sure when you joined the organisation you knew that you yourself has to find a job, and if you know that you are not that capable to find a job by yourself going to any institute which doesn't provide placements doesn't make sense.
I believe the biggest fault of AIT management is that it doesn't keep track of its Alumni and do not bother to network with the international students studied there. This is the biggest drawback of the institute.
I know many of my batchmates and seniors who are placed at good positions like Brand manager, analytics lead etc in Indian and foreign MNCs like Dell, KPMG, Wipro, Biocon, Caterpillar or successfully started their own business. I know few of my juniors who actually went on exchange programs and got job in European countries.

Anyway, my point is if you want a placement program to place you and if you do not have experience prior to MBA, better go to any business schools in India.

No u donot have to to study Mandarin before you come to Thailand.. AIT is an international organization/institution, classes are held in English, well its not a university.Agreed do not come here for placements.For non thai students, u have to go back and find jobs in ur home country, AIT does not make any false promises. Lucky enough if u can find a job in Thailand as a non thai.However as far as quality of education, the MBA school has lost it charm, too many professors left, part of the problem lies with the management of the entire institute itself.The school has to reinvent its brand in Europe as well as in Asia. Academically the quality of education is average, course material has to be updated, very less faculty not expected in B schools and not experienced much.The school is well know in Thailand but other Thai universities has surpassed it.Exchange program is a good option here.You donot have to submit GMAT scores but if u have u can.Personally I would not recommend this institute unless and until u donot have an option to join another well recognized institute, current situation is really not healthy. All depends on the management how to bring back the old glorious days.
