College of Management Mahidol University (CMMU) - C.A.G.S International Program

INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM

Master Degree Program

The International Program at CMMU aims to develop organizational leaders with up-to-date knowledge and skills in management to deal with dynamic global changes through a combination of relevant research and practical learning.

CERTIFICATE OF ADVANCED GRADUATE STUDY

The C.A.G.S. - also known in Thailand as a Higher Diploma was first popularized by higher education institutions in the USA. It is a certificate program, not a degree program, and is intended for people who already hold a Master degree. The coursework in a C.A.G.S. program focuses on practical application of management knowledge rather than on research.

The C.A.G.S. program in Management at CMMU responds to the need among an increasing number of Master Degree graduates in Thailand and the region for post-graduate education in management. Many Master degree graduates wish to update their training and develop expertise in new or different management domains. For many, doctoral level education is both unnecessary and inappropriate to achieving professional goals concerned with practice rather than research.

Program Rationale

  • The C.A.G.S. program in Management at CMMU responds to the need among an increasing number of Master Degree (M.B.A., M.M., M.Sc., M.P.A. etc.) graduates in Thailand and the region for continuing post-graduate education in management.
  • Many Master degree graduates have a need to update their training and/or develop expertise in new or different management domains.
  • For many of these students, doctoral level education is both unnecessary and inappropriate to achieving their professional goals which may be concerned with practice rather than research.

Program Objectives

  • General management knowledge in areas they may not have studied in their Master degree programs;
  • Specialized, up-to-date, in-depth knowledge in a management domain;
  • Capability to apply knowledge of management to important organizational problems.
