MSME has partnered with several Thai government agencies. In cooperation with the local and central governments, MSME manages research and contributes to the capacity of governance.
By actively engaging MSME faculty members in reginal and national governance activities and by providing critical knowledge and expertise that is embedded in our faculty and that can be used to aid problem-solving, MSME has a long tradition of supporting policymakers to make informed decisions through collaborations with the public sector.
During 2014-2016, MSME has received a total of THB 2 millions from the Office of Higher Education Commission (OHEC) to set up and operate a business incubator unit to assist the University's students and faculty members in starting up new business ventures as well as to disseminate essential knowledge on entreprenurship to the public. At the University, the MSME's business incubator unit is known as the Assumption Business Leading Entrepreneurship - University Business Incubation (ABLE-UBI) Center.
