Our History

The Bachelor of Economics in Business Economics (B.Econ.) program at Assumption University started to open its door to students in May 2005 with the initiation by the former Dean of Martin de Tours School of Management and Economics, Dr. Cherdpong Sibunruang. This was a vision of the President Emeritus, Bro. Martin Komolmas, to create an Economics program well integrated with the business disciplines and programs. The rationale of having a business economics program as part of the School of Management is that economics provides the foundation for all business fields and fosters analytical and critical thinking, which is vital for all business graduates.

Our Business Economics program provides a truly international learning environment as faculty members and students come from various countries around the world, such as Canada, China, Myanmar, Pakistan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Vietnam. Over 200 undergraduate students are currently enrolled in the program. We have produced more than 350 graduates, and they have been recruited by organizations in both private and public sectors.
