Launching campuses in both Bangkok and Chonburi, a coastal area lined with popular beaches, is a move designed to support the needs of Thailand’s fast-growing tourism industry, particularly that of the Eastern Economic Corridor.

The institute will also be offering development training for hotel industry professionals to bridge the gap between an expanding demand for experienced hospitality leaders and limited domestic supply.
