Meaning of 'Sasin'
Faculty, staff, and students alike take tremendous pride in the name "Sasin" because His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej graciously bestowed it on the Graduate Institute of Business Administration (GIBA), on his 60th birthday, December 5, 1987. The name comes from two Sanskrit words: sasa and indra. Sasa, meaning "rabbit" represents His Majesty's birth year in the Thai 12-year astrological cycle
. Indra means "chief." Thus "Sasin" literally means "King of the Rabbits."
Sasin's development has so far fulfilled the expectations of its founders whose vision was to establish "an educational institute of the highest order of excellence." The Sasin-Kellogg-Wharton management education collaboration pioneered the use of world-class visiting professors complemented by full-time Sasin faculty and other experts in Southeast Asia
