Faculty Position in Finance


The Faculty of Asia School of Business invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Finance at the Assistant Professor level, starting in August 2019.

Asia School of Business (ASB) – a partnership between the Central Bank of Malaysia and MIT Sloan School of Management – was founded in 2015 in Kuala Lumpur and has been recognized as having the most innovative MBA program in the world today by Poets & Quants. At ASB, we offer a multicultural and intellectually stimulating environment for scholars across different disciplines thanks to our commitment to people, ideas, and talent. We promote high-impact and actionable academic research and embrace scholarship from multiple disciplinary perspectives.

All faculty members spend a summer as International Faculty Fellows at MIT Sloan focusing on teaching and research capabilities development under the guidance of an MIT Sloan faculty host and retain their MIT affiliations afterwards. ASB offers an internationally competitive compensation package, a very manageable teaching load, plus generous research funding, and strong teaching support staff.

We favor applicants who can demonstrate the capacity for exceptional research achievement and the ability to teach effectively in MBA, EMBA, and Executive Education Programs. As a school, our goal is to develop transformative and principled leaders who will contribute to a better future and advance the emerging world. We are particularly interested in candidates with a strong interest in Southeast Asia studies, undertaking research in the following broad areas: bank accounting and regulation, financial reporting, banking and corporate finance.
