Tourism is one among various vital parts of Thai economy, and the future of tourism depends greatly on hospitality education in order to meet the growing demands of tourists and the tourism industry. Regardless of how the world changes, Thailand represents the epitome of hospitality warmth and charm, and Dusit Thani College is the premier institution to bring these concepts through superior service and excellence to Southeast Asia.

Tourism and Hospitality Studies
The raison d’etre for the existence of the college is to provide bachelor degrees in hospitality with the approval of the Ministry of University Affairs since 1996. In addition to award degree programmes, non-award programmes in hospitality fields including an Executive Programme in Hotel Management, Hospitality Access Programme, Short Training Courses and Corporate Training Courses are also available. In response to market demands in the Asia Pacific region, at present, programmes offered in English are Hotel and Resort Management, and Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management.
One of the most important assets of Dusit Thani College, however, is its 100% dedication to the hotel and tourism business. DTC is a single-purpose college, where all programmes and thus instructors and students focus on the development of knowledge, skills and a mindset for this growing and fascinating hospitality business.
With DTC being founded by Dusit Thani International, its roots are therefore in the hospitality and tourism industry. Students can be exposed on a day to day basis to the real world of the operations of a hotel, for example through the Dusit Princess Hotel, adjacent to the Dusit Thani College. Through this relationship with the premier Thai hotel & resort chain our instructors have easy access to the latest developments within the hotel industry. This helps them to ensure that the course content is permanently updated.
All DTC academic programmes are fully accredited by the Office of the Higher Education Commission of the Ministry of Education of Thailand, with full academic recognition. DTC is also recognised by various branches of the Thai government as the leading institution in its field in the country. It is selected by the Thai Ministry to act as the hub for the ASEAN project that aims to standardise competencies in the hospitality industry across ASEAN which in turn will provide labour mobility across the region.
DTC takes pride in its graduate success – alumni found employment overseas soon after graduation. After returning from working overseas for a few years, some of them have been hired as an Executive Chef at Five-star hotels, while several have succeeded in the management level of famous hotels in Thailand. Also, some alumni have taken the leap and started their own businesses in the fields of bakery, restaurant, and hotel.
The Faculty of Hospitality Industry is the driving force behind programme offerings and curriculum development. It has a very strong linkage to the industry advisory board in the form of the College Council, comprising of high level representatives of the Thai hospitality industry including the executives from Dusit International.
Under the guidance of the Rector, Vice Rector and Dean, new programmes are investigated and curricula are developed with the very active contribution of the College Council after the input from the industry.
