After the outbreak of World War II in 1941, the institution was closed and it was reopened in 1963. The two-year curriculum was developed into a standard four-year program in 1964 and on June 17, 1970, the College of Commerce was officially accredited under the Private College Act.
On October 24, 1984, this institution was accredited as a university and the name was changed to the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce.
