Founded in June 7, 1934, Maejo University (MJU) is considered as Thailand’s oldest agricultural institution. It was first established as the Northern Agricultural Teachers Training School under the Ministry of  Education and was later transferred under the Ministry of Agriculture to become the Kasetsart Preparatory School.
After a year, it was officially installed as Maejo Agricultural School to serve as a research station of Kasetsart University (KU), a state university in Bangkok. It began to accept M.6 (Grade 12) students who, upon finishing at Maejo, were automatically admitted to KU for a 4-year degree program.
In 1956, Maejo was renamed Chiang Mai College of Agriculture, making it the first certificate-granting agricultural college under the Ministry of Education. Its graduates 
became secondary school teachers in agriculture.
In 1982, the institutes name was again changed into Maejo Institute of Agricultural Technology upon the request of its alumni. However, due to its rapid development, it was elevated into a full and complete university status on November 12, 1996. It was given the name Maejo University which was immediately approved by the national parliament.
Under the Ministry of Education, Maejo University is a degree-granting institute that attempts to educate students in practical agriculture, aiming to prepare them for agricultural pursuits. MJU strives to nurture and develop its graduates to become technically competent, besides being culturally and scholarly matured thereby, able to contribute to the future of the country.
At present, Maejo University belongs to the Commission on Higher Education of the Ministry of Education.
