Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why choose the International Program at CMMU?
  • We keep class size small to allow for interaction and practical learning activities
  • We offer flexible study times (evenings and weekends)
  • We provide study abroad opportunities at more than 30 partner universities worldwide
  • We offer double degree and dual degree options in France and Australia
What are the advantages of studying in the International Program at CMMU?
In a nutshell:
  • Practice English, the global language of business, science and culture, while studying business. Five semesters of everyday exposure means, your English ability will improve quickly.
  • Improve your job opportunities with multinational companies. It is increasingly common for MNCs to replace expats with locals. A diploma from the International Program signals that you have an international mindset and English proficiency.
  • Improve your job opportunities with Thai companies seeking to expand abroad.
  • Share classes and make friends with our many exchange students. In many of the elective courses, a third of the students are from abroad, leading to a stimulating, multi-cultural classroom environment.
  • Have the experience of a lifetime studying abroad for one or two semesters at one of our nearly 40 partner schools around the world.
  • Earn a dual degree with our affiliated schools: With one or two semesters abroad, you can earn a second Master’s degree from three prestigious universities: UTS (Australia), Macquarie University (Australia), and Toulouse University (France).
  • Have a chance to attend a business project competition with our company partners such as Unilever and have an opportunity to work with them as a management trainee.
  • Our international team of faculty members come from a variety of countries such as Austria, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Thailand and the U.S. They have PhD degrees from well-known universities in Europe, the US and Australia, and actively publish in high-quality journals. Many have also taught at foreign universities and have industry experience.
  • For those of you considering further studies or working abroad in the future, having a diploma from an English-language program improves your chance of admission.
I intend to work for a Thai company serving mainly the Thai market after graduation. Do I lose anything in terms of learning how to do business in Thailand if I study in the International Program?
No. Even though the language of instruction is English, our faculty use a mix of local and international examples. Using Thai examples can be useful to make the class topics more relevant. It should be said, however, that most of the frameworks, theories and best practices of business are universal. Our primary goal is to change the way you think and how you approach business problems, not to teach you details of the local market. There are also situations where international examples are preferable, for instance, to illustrate cutting edge management thinking from innovative companies around the world.
I’m not sure if my English is good enough. Will I have a problem doing the course work?

As part of our admissions process, you will take a language test and also come for a face to face admissions interview. We are not looking for perfect English but we want to ensure that English will not be an obstacle to your successful completion of the program. If we think that your level of English is not sufficient we will recommend that you take English classes.

Which should I choose: CI, IS, CP/Thematic Paper or Thesis?
Independent Study (IS)
Can be a study of a specific company or case, or it can be broader, such as exploring a business opportunity or trying to understand motivations or satisfaction.

Each of these options (CP, CI, IS) add up to six credits, whereas a thesis is 15 credits, and is expected to be a more comprehensive project.

Thesis

A thesis requires a literature review of past relevant work, and then original research is conducted by the student and presented to an academic committee. Anyone potentially interested in Ph.D. study should consider either the IS or thesis option. Students with a full scholarship are required to write a thesis.

When can I consider going on exchange at one of CMMU’s partner universities?

Students should pass the comprehensive exam before they consider going on an exchange program. The best time for exchange would be term 4 or term 5.

My job does not allow me to go on exchange abroad for a full term. Are there any short-term exchange opportunities?

Yes. Several of our partner universities offer short-term exchange opportunities for one week, or two weeks, or 1 month. CMMU also offers an international study trip as part of a CP Course on International Business

Why a double degree?
  1. Earn two degrees.
  2. Get a competitive edge and a better job when you graduate
  3. Obtain two degrees in only 5 terms (depending on the institution)
  4. Study in an international environment that will provide you the soft skills you need to boost your career
  5. Enjoy studying and living in a different environment.
