College's History

Dusit Thani College, a private educational institution specializing in tourism and hospitality management under operating of Thailand leading hospitality group ‘Dusit International’ was established to meet the industry’s high demand for well-trained professionals.

The college offers nationally and internationally recognised Thai and International degree programs, an MBA program as well as non-degree programs in all aspects of hospitality, culinary arts, and tourism management. With its aspiration of prominence as Asia’s premier international educational and training institute, Dusit Thani College sustainably develops and offers high quality education producing highly competent graduates who have acquired first-rate professional skills, creativity and an innovative outlook.


The Dusit Thani Hotel School opened its doors on Srinagarindra Road in Bangkok, under the leadership of Thanpuying Chanut Piyaoui, who was Chairman of the Board and Managing Director of Dusit Thani Public Company Limited.

When Dusit Thani College Established

  • At that time, Thailand had a shortage of manpower, knowledge and experience in the hospitality industry, due in part to a lack of educational institutes and training programs. Those that existed focused only on theory, offering no practical experience for the students. In addition, there were few industry leaders involved in the academic development of hotel businesses.
  • Dusit Thani Hotel School was established to meet this need by delivering specialised, practical training for the industry and to support Thailand’s developing hotel business.

At first, two courses were available:

  • Diploma in Hotel Operations
  • Professional Chef Diploma


Dusit Thani Hotel School became the first institute in Thailand to be approved for college status and started to offer undergraduate programs.
