Jongdee Phusalux, Urasa Buatama and Wanno Fongsuwan

Education is the key to progress and it follows that education is a principal contributor to the development of human resources for national economic and social improvement. In Thailand, private vocational schools have become a focal point in economic development strategies and with the economic union of the 10 southeast nations in 2015; education has been identified as a key regional strategy for economic growth. With global higher education enrolment increasing from 32.6 million in 1970 to 182.2 million students in 2011, 46% of which was in the East and South Asia region in 2011, Thailand has taken a central role in these discussions. Vocational education in Thailand is particularly important for the high percentage of contribution from the private sectors which accounts for almost 37% of the total educational system. This study therefore, analyzed the factors affecting administrator management effectiveness of Thai private vocational colleges by studying the learning environment, management innovation techniques and management strategies as well as their 18 related factors. A multi-stage random sampling was used to collect the sample from 614 Thai college administrators. The questionnaire was employed as the instrument for data collecting and PLS Graph was used for model verification. Results illustrated from the structural equation modeling that confirmatory factors of management innovation, management strategy and learning environment had a direct and positive effect on administrator management effectiveness.
