Sasin renovations for the new “Gen S” education  

 

Sasin School of Management, the first internationally accredited business school in Thailand, recently held a Dedication & Blessing Ceremony for the Toemsakdi Krishnamra Hall, named after the founding director of the school, and the newly renovated first and second floors of its main Sasa Patasala Building. The new world-class, participant-oriented facilities include a series of flexible working spaces that will complement Sasin’s classrooms. The entire renovation was made possible by a generous donation from an anonymous Sasin alumnus.

 

The ceremony was attended by Professor Ian Fenwick, Sasin’s Director, Chulalongkorn University President Professor Bundhit Eua-arporn, Khun Subhasakdi Krishnamra, Managing Partner of Deloitte Thailand, and Professor Toemsakdi Krishnamra, Sasin’s Founding Director, as well as many Sasin alumni, administrators, faculty, students, and staff.

 

Professor Ian Fenwick said, “Sasin’s new, flexible spaces, created to foster inspiration, connection, and transformation, are the most visible signs of recent changes at Sasin. Exponential technologies ensure we will face a world of perpetual disruption in business, in society and, of course, in education. Education, especially business education, is transforming and becoming much more digitally-oriented. The pandemic has accelerated these changes and laid the groundwork for blended learning: complementing online teaching frameworks with face-to-face small group applications of those frameworks: action learning.”

 

He noted, “Our students now have a series of flexible working spaces, from more formal study rooms to totally informal ‘niches’: small areas with seating, power and screens. These will complement our classrooms, just as action learning complements their learning.  Our Mission and Vision are not about awarding degrees but about developing leaders who understand and implement sustainable business practices. Sustainability is the driving force of Gen S (or Generation Sasin), a group of leaders who can create wider impact for a better, smarter, sustainable world.

 

The renovation includes Royal Hall Exhibition, Bancha Lamsam Suite, Toemsakdi Krishnamra Hall, Speakers’ Corner, Workshops, the Sasin Sustainability & Entrepreneurship Center (SEC), Sasa Commons (by FOODLAB), and Café DoiTung.
