International Program

The International Program at CMMU aims to develop organizational leaders with up-to-date knowledge and skills in management to deal with dynamic global changes through a combination of relevant research and practical learning.


Marketing is an essential part of enhancing business success. With the competitive scene increasingly moving to become international, and with more and more players, the need for specialized marketing skills continues to grow. Functional differentiation is not a guarantee of success. Learning and applying marketing skills will help you rise above your competition and enhance your effectiveness.

Marketing is a language, a way to learn about consumer wants and needs and offer them products and services that they desire. What should we make? How should we brand it? What should we say when advertising?

By studying marketing at CMMU, MM students will tap into state-of-the art knowledge and theories from around the world. While many theories are from abroad, they are customized to fit applications within Thai and Asian societies.


If you are interested in understanding consumer behavior so that you can develop more effective branding and marketing communications, this program is the right option for you. Elective classes are offered to help expand your abilities, such as digital marketing, but with flexibility so that you can choose what is useful or of interest to you. The teaching is a blend of theory and practice, with an emphasis on practical application in the real world.


Those working (or interested in) areas such as marketers, marketing or brand managers, those working in advertising, consumer analysts, market researchers, product analysts, or retailing - marketing can be applied to any field.
