National and International Collaborative educational network is increasingly flourishing. A collaboration with SkillLane, Thailand’s chief learning and digital training platform, resulted in a codesigned online master’s degree program.  Knowledge and skills are delivered digitally, no longer restricted to traditional full-time students.
