The MPE programme has begun its first teaching at Lampang back in 1992. It is the first outreach programme by Thammasat University, aimed at providing opportunities for executives from both public and private sectors in the Lower Northern and upper Central regions. After 10 years in operation, however, the Faculty has come to the conclusion that the MPE programme is a highly popular course and should be expanded much further. Thus the Faculty decided to move the programme's teaching to Rangsit Campus.
The MPE programme has a crucial role in training individuals who will become a driving force in developing the nation. The programme intends to produce quality graduates that are well-informed and able to adapt the knowledge to the situation at hand. Past alumni have come from many occupations and various positions, including ministers, senators, MPs, political party leaders, state officials, police officers, chief executives of Provincial Administrative Organisations (PAO), mayors, businessmen, doctors, nurses, and so forth.

Saturdays 9.00 - 18.00 (English classes will be haled between 15.00 - 18.00, except those who have passed the TU-GET requirement) and Sundays 9.00 - 15.00.
