Sasin School of Management, the first internationally accredited business school in Thailand, recently renovated the first and second floors of its main building. The new world-class, participant-oriented facilities provide flexible, reconfigurable workspaces to meet the needs of the entire Sasin community. The renovations were made possible by a generous donation from an anonymous Sasin alumnus.
Sasin’s Director, Professor Ian Fenwick, notes that, “Our new, flexible spaces, created to foster inspiration, connection, and transformation, are the most visible signs of the many recent changes at Sasin. Exponential technologies ensure we will face a world of perpetual disruption in business, in society and, of course, in education. Education, especially business education, is transforming and becoming much more digitally-oriented. The global pandemic has put all this into fast forward. In a very real sense, the pandemic has laid the groundwork for blended learning: complementing online teaching of frameworks with small face-to-face group applications of those frameworks, or action learning.
Sasin students now have a range of flexible workspaces, from more formal study rooms to totally informal ‘niches’ – small areas with seating, power and screens. These will complement our classrooms, just as action learning complements their learning. Our Mission and Vision are not about awarding degrees but about developing leaders who understand and implement sustainable business practices. Sustainability is the driving force of Gen S or Generation Sasin who can create wider impact for a better, smarter, sustainable world.”
The major renovation includes Royal Hall Exhibition, Bancha Lamsam Suite, Toemsakdi Krishnamra Hall (named after Sasin’s Founding Director), Speakers’ Corner, Workshops, the Sustainability & Entrepreneurship Center (SEC), Sasa Commons, and Café Doitung.
