Prior to the inauguration of CGSM, the first batch of 60 MBA students enrolled at the Faculty of Management Science at Khon Kaen University in March of 1994.
To be consistent and in alignment with the Fourth National Higher Education Plan, , Khon Kaen University as an institution for higher education has implemented policies to support the development of Graduate Study and to meet the demands of the country and the region. The University Council approved the CGSM plan to organize MBA programs at the Bangkok Office in 2000.
Having the ultimate goal to upgrade the administrative potential of the people in Thailand, CGSM has committed to: 1) provide the educational opportunities at the graduate studies in management, 2) conduct and support research related to business and administration, and 3) extend its role for community outreach.
