About Us

Background

 Due to the fact that Sukhothai Thummathirat Open University was established to be an open university to educate people through a distance self-study education system. At the beginning, the university selected to operate teaching programs by responding to social needs and the readiness of the university in order that the university was capable to provide the standardized education. The social need assessment was committed according to the Fifth National Economic and Social Development Plan and the survey was based on the public opinion

toward an open university. Regarding to the readiness of the university, it was concerned firstly about the personnel aspect: the expertise and experience of the lecturers that were recruited at that time. Secondly, the attributes of disciplines that fit the distance education system and available teaching media in Thailand, were an additional criterion.

From these criteria, the university started with three schools of study. The School of Management Science was one of them. The School of Management Science launched many programs; that is, Management Science program, Construction Management program, Business Administration  program, Public Administration and Accounting program in 1980 – 1981 and has been operating since then.
