In March of 1986 the Mahidol University Council officially endorsed the formation of a new international bachelor degree program, the first of its kind at a public university, designated at that time as the International Students Degree Program (ISDP). Six months later, in September of l986, the program welcomed its first class of students.
The beginning was a modest one – as most beginnings usually are. The facilities were situated on the second floor of the MU Social Science and Humanities Building, with 45 students, two full-time and 20 part-time instructors, a four-member support staff, seven major offerings in the Sciences and Travel Industry Management – and an abundance of hope and determination. During its initial years ISDP grew and flourished, so much so that it eventually required its own separate facilities. In 1992 ISDP officially dedicated its new building, which accommodated 486 students, and introduced two additional majors in Business Administration and Food Science and Technology.
