The Prime Minister’s Award was established in 1992 by the Thai Ministry of Industry and recognizes exceptional Thai enterprises, particularly those that compete in the global marketplace. With this award, Webster University joins a very exclusive club of business institutions in Thailand.

WUT attracts students from more than 60 countries with 85 percent of the student body coming from overseas. Students are attracted to the internationally recognized programs and a diverse student body supported by faculty members from over 25 countries.

“I am delighted that our effort in promoting Thailand as an education destination and our quest for excellence has been recognized by the Thai Government,“ said Ratish Thakur, rector at Webster Thailand.

“Webster University is honored to receive a Prime Minister’s Award, the highest government recognition for excellence in service in Thailand,” said Webster University President Elizabeth “Beth” J. Stroble. “As we advance a mission to provide learning experiences that transform students for individual excellence and global citizenship, we are proud to welcome a globally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students to Webster Thailand. This recognition affirms the importance of our university’s vision and mission, and for that we are grateful.”

Accolades for Webster in Thailand

Recognition and awards are nothing new for Webster University Thailand. Earlier this year the University was a recipient of the Thailand Trust Mark, an award that recognizes Webster as a leader in the educational institutions in Thailand both locally and internationally.

Last year the University was evaluated as “excellent” by The Office of National Education Standards and Quality Assessment (ONESQA).
