The credits from this course will be able to transfer to MBA in Hotel and Restaurant Management Programme according to rules and regulations of transfer experiences of College.

Ms. Veera Padpattanapanich, Rector, Dusit Thani College, said, “It is important to provide participants the knowledge to keep themselves and our company competitive. We believe that this course will enrich them a fresh insight on management, broaden their vision and the hospitality best practices. Our courses are not only informative but applicable to their work which will support them to progress in their profession.”

Mr. Justin Lee, Vice President Talent Management, Dusit International, said, “With Dusit’s global expansion, we need to prepare our people for challenges ahead. Human talents are the fundamental elements of hospitality services, and it is our priority to develop their talents to help us strive for excellence. We are a company that values education, and have always been committed to providing the best to our employees – this is yet another step towards this vision.”

Started in September 2009, the Mini MBA programme was developed by one of Asia’s finest hospitality institutions, Dusit Thani College, in cooperation with Dusit’s distinguished training centre, Dusit Executive Development Center, which was established to provide top-level executive training courses and customised programmes to individuals and various organisations specialising in, or dealing with, the hospitality industry.

“If Thailand is to be among the world's leaders in the hotel and hospitality industry, the education and training of staff would be of the highest importance,” said Thanpuying Chanut Piyaoui, Dusit Group's Founder and Honorary Chairperson, over 60 years ago when Thailand was still in its infancy in the field of tourism and travel.
