About AITM

Managed by experienced educationists and professionals, with more than three decades of proven track record and with both national and international experience, AITM wishes to be a positive agent of change, within the country, regionally and internationally, by collaborating with AIT in Thailand, IMI University Center in Switzerland, and other internationally reputed academic institutions so as to draw upon their vast experience and track record in operating in multi-national and multi-cultural academic settings.
