Why MFU?

“Well Rounded, Self-Directed Learning, Professionalism, Cross Cultural Intelligence”


Mae Fah Luang University (MFU) was established as an autonomous public university, under the Royal Charter, in 1998, with generous support from the Royal Thai Government. The University was established to meet the needs of people in the north of Thailand, and to commemorate the gracious contributions of the Kin's Mother, Her Royal Highness Princess Srinagarindra, lovingly known to her subjects as "Mae Fah Luang." From its inaugural class of 64 students in 1998, MFU has become Thailand's fastest growing post-secondary institution with an enrollment of just under 10,000 students. After little over a decade of operation, MFU is already well known for its high-quality teaching, research, and service to the people of the whole country, the neighboring countries of the Greater Mekhong Sub-region (GMS), and to all of Southeast Asia. Recently, we had just celebrated our 16-year anniversary in September 2014 with a deeply-held commitment to becoming a world-class educational institution through continuous improvement, collaborations and partnerships.


The School of Management of Mae Fah Luang University aims to craft proficient graduates in each field of study to meet the needs of businesses, industries and government departments, throughout Thailand and abroad. The School is recognised as one of Thailand’s fastest growing and effective international business schools, constantly producing high quality graduates, offering extensive and diverse courses, using modern teaching approaches to ensure the utmost benefit to the students, and also providing a high amount of exchange opportunities to many of its partner institutions. All of the School’s academic programmes are well-constructed, extensive, diverse and suitable for both Thai and international students. Moreover, the School’s quality assurance system certifies the quality of education in crafting proficient graduates in each field of study.
