“Bangkokthonburi University” was formally approved by the Higher Education Commission and was later granted permission on June 11, 2009 by the Minister of Education
(Mr.Jurin Laksanavisit) to change its status from Bangkokthonburi College to Bangkokthonburi University (BTU).
Bangkokthonburi University (previously called Bangkokthonburi College) was founded on January 28, 2002 by Dr.Bang-orn Benjathikul who realized the paramount importance of human resource development of the nation and strongly desired to meet the need of the community, the students’ parents, the alumni of Krungthep Commercial School and polytechnic Krungthep Commercial School, as well as the youths and the people throughout the region.
She has high hope that all those people would be given an opportunity to pursue their advanced studies at BTU which aspires to become a center of body of superb knowledge in a wide variety of disciplines; the knowledge would be imparted to the students by scholars. Above all, people from all walks of life will be given on equal opportunity to study at the University so that they can enhance their capabilities and morality and finally lead a life beneficial to Thai society and the nation. Thus it would be in accordance with the University’s motto which says: “Build Intellect, Man, Morals.”
