Asia School of Business

The MIT Sloan Connection

In April 2015, MIT Sloan embarked on a strategic collaboration to establish Asia School of Business (ASB) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


Developing Principled, Transformative Leaders in Asia and Beyond

Established through a partnership with MIT Sloan, ASB addresses Asia’s demand for skilled talent by merging regional ambition with MIT Sloan’s standards. This collaboration shapes change-makers and entrepreneurs, with ASB’s acclaimed MBA program seamlessly integrating MIT Sloan’s Action Learning pedagogy for widespread recognition.

World Class MIT Faculty

The collaboration with MIT Sloan is strengthened by integrating its academics into the ASB faculty and board. They constitute a panel of industry leaders and scholars dedicated to advancing ASB as a premier business school in Asia, with all members of the faculty also having taught in the program.
