The University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce (UTCC), originally known as the College of Commerce, is the oldest private non-profit higher education institution founded by the Thai Chamber of Commerce in 1940 to provide business education targeting Thailand’s young people.

It was originally named The College of Commerce.
In 1984, the college was granted full university status under its current name.

UTCC’s vision is to become the leading university in Trade and Services in ASEAN. UTCC offers degrees in Business Administration, Accounting, Economics, Humanities, Science, Communication Arts, Engineering, Law, Tourism & Services, Early Childhood Education, and Digital Arts & Design. In addition, there are four colleges including Graduate School, College of Entrepreneurship, International School of Management, and Extension School, offering degree programs from bachelor to doctoral level as well as non-degree programs.
It is a place where academic theories and business experiences are integrated to produce graduates who can successfully meet today’s business challenges.

Furthermore, UTCC has successfully taken on the role of being a think-tank for both the public and private sectors in Thailand.
UTCC’s services include not only academic programs, but also customized training modules, business consultancy, and research.

Under the vision of the UTCC to become the leading university in Trade and Services in ASEAN, UTCC has also been running a very successful offshore Global MBA program in Myanmar (Yangon and Mandalay), with over 300 students currently enrolled over various batches, and about 700 Alumni since 2012. Many of the students are the top business entrepreneurs in their country.

This program was established in 2012 (Yangon) and 2013 (Mandalay) in partnership with The Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (UMFCCI), and UTCC expects a full resumption of the program once the Covid19 situation permits us to do so.

“UTCC International College” was founded in 2010.

As it grew relatively quickly and consequently widening the scope of its operations, in August 2019 UTCC decided to rebrand it into UTCC – International School of Management (iSM).

UTCC iSM offers various degrees in the Bachelor, Masters, and PhD levels taught exclusively in English, and has currently numerous partnerships with universities around the world, with activities focused on student and faculty exchange programs, customized short study programs coupled with company visits, and various grant based programs (DAAD, Erasmus+,Asem-DUO, and others).

UTCC iSM has also recently launched two-degree partnerships with University of Newcastle, Australia, as well as with Ming Chuan University, Taiwan.

As providing a truly international experience to our students carries a huge importance at UTCC iSM, a great student recruitment effort has been made to realize that.

Our International School of Management student community consists of 600+ students representing over 30 nationalities, including students from Thailand, China, Vietnam, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, Hong Kong, USA, Canada, Chile, Brazil, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Congo, Nigeria, UK, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Sweden, Finland, and others.

Most recently, there has been a significant emphasis placed on entrepreneurial development throughout all our Bachelor and Master degree programs, with several entrepreneurship courses focusing on innovations, creativity towards design thinking, Business model development, local, regional and global entrepreneurial developments, and also providing students the courage and skills to first-hand create their own start-up companies.

UTCC is well-known as business and entrepreneurial university in ASEAN.

In 2019 during Thailand’s year as ASEAN Chair, UTCC was an integral part of the secretariat team within the ASEAN Business Advisory Council, the ASEAN Women Entrepreneurs Network, and the ASEAN Young Entrepreneur Council.
UTCC has extensive experience in managing projects within ASEAN and has connections with various Foreign Chambers of Commerce in ASEAN+6 countries.

Organized by the ASEAN Foundation, UTCC iSM faculty successfully provided support in an advisory role to the UTCC iSM Thai students’ team that won the ASEAN Data Science Explorers 2018 Thai National Finals, and consequently, had a very competitive showing at the ASEAN Data Science Explorers 2018’s Regional Finals held in Singapore (2018).

The following year, due in part of its strong competitive 2018 team, UTCC was selected as the Thai National host for the ASEAN Data Science Explorers 2019 Thai Nationals round.

That same year, UTCC iSM was privileged to host a session for the ASEAN Young Leaders program sponsored by ASEAN Foundation at UTCC iSM (Sept 2019).
