The ABAC Ph.D. in Hospitality and Tourism Management (Ph.D. HTM) Program is the first International Tourism PhD program in Thailand and continues to be the pre-eminent program with small class sizes, and students from ASEAN. The program is delivered in English by international faculty members, all of whom have a wealth of experience in Tourism and Hospitality sectors.
The Ph.D. HTM program is delivered through a series of seven modules arranged in a combination of conventional lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops and out-of-class activity-based learning experiences. With one intake per year registration can be made at any time with the program commencing in September each year.
After completing the seven theory modules in their first year students are assigned an individual supervisor who is a renowned researcher in the student’s research area. Students may elect to complete their dissertation in one to four years.
