On 14 June 2022, Prof. Eric Cornuel, President of EFMD Global, and Ms. Helke Carvalho-Hernandes, Vice-President, were welcomed to Thammasat University by the Rector, Gasinee Withoonchart, and the Vice Rector for Administration (Tha Prachan) and International Affairs, along with staff from the International Affairs Office.
