    Credit information for KFBS students

    The BBA program at Thammasat University specializes in finance, organizational behavior, marketing, operations, real estate, and information systems. Kenan-Flagler students take 4-5 courses and transfer 12-15 hours of business core and elective credit towards the undergraduate business major.

    Courses taken at Thammasat University will transfer back to UNC Pass/Fail. Achieving a grade of C or above will transfer back to UNC as a pass course, which will not affect UNC GPA. Students who receive any grade under C will fail the course and an F grade will transfer back to UNC, which will affect their UNC GPA. Though transfer credit for this program is Pass/Fail, future employers and graduate schools will also look at the TBS transcript, so grades are important.

    Students participating on this program will transfer back 3 UNC credits for every 3 credit course at TBS, and are expected to take either four or five courses worth 3 credits each during the semester. A student who earns a C or above in all courses will receive a total of 12-15 UNC credits for their semester abroad.

    This program also fulfills Experiential Education and you will earn 5 points towards the Kenan-Flagler Global Inclusive Leadership Initiative.« PrevNext »

  • Student Life

    As a cosmopolitan city, Bangkok is known for its night life and shopping. Mass transit makes it easy to travel around and explore this busy, on the go city. Tourism is the city's main revenue generator, but this port city also has a substantial trade industry. The average temperature is 90 degrees year round. In 2007, the population of Bangkok was listed at over 8 million.
