Bangkok is home to approximately 12 million people. This sophisticated city is the political, social and economic center of Thailand. Its vibrancy attracts professionals from all over the world. Situated on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, Bangkok's cosmopolitan skyline, blending modern office towers and historic religious shrines, expresses the adeptness of the Thai people to fuse the old with the new.
Webster University's Bangkok Center is conveniently located in the commercial heart of Bangkok near the Chidlom BTS skytrain station. From that starting point, students in the Global MA programs can visit important sites in Bangkok and the rest of Thailand.
As a top financial and political hub of Southeast Asia, Bangkok is an ideal place to learn about international affairs, including border issues and refugees. Students are encouraged to join the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand and can attend lectures at some of Thailand's leading universities.
