order to develop Mahidol University students both physical and emotional, and to be knowledgeable that create seven organizational cultures: Mastery – Altruism – Harmony – Integrity – Determination – Originality – Leadership. The cultures will be learned through courses and activities in the university. We do not only emphasize on teaching but also physical and mind of the students, so as to make them be public-minded and responsible to the society, the community, and the country. All students who study at Mahidol University come with hope. While the students are studying; they have to try hard, in order to graduate as they wish.
