Data were retrieved from the search engine by using the key word “digital program in Thai universities” in Thai language. Results showed that 15 programs from 14 universities both public and private were related to “digital.” Among 10 undergraduate programs in digital, a half of them were designed as a bachelor’s degree in business administration. The average credit hours for digital related program of undergraduate degree were between 116-135 credits. Most of undergraduate program had delivered their programs in a weekday format for a four-year program while graduate program had tied up with a weekend format.
