ASB CAREER DEVELOPMENT OFFICE
The Career Development Office plays a pivotal role in bridging businesses with ASB’s world-class students. Our mission is to work with employers, students and alumni to build long-term relationships that satisfy; we engage with employers to identify their unmet talent needs, while helping students and alumni to shape and pursue their goals effectively – ensuring that both parties make that ‘connection!’.
ASB adheres to the MBA Career Services & Employer Alliance (MBA CSEA) Standards for Reporting MBA Employment Statistics (mbacsea.org).
Conformance to this business school industry standard ensures accurate and comparable employment data. Currently, the majority of the leading MBA programs adhere to these accepted reporting standards (including MIT Sloan).
For Class of 2019: Placement result for 3 months post-graduation (as at 14 July 2019) is 83% with offers received and/or accepted.
- Almost 70% who accepted offers are based out of Asia, and half of them are based in Malaysia. Out of those who accepted roles in Malaysia, 50% were non-Malaysian. This can be seen as a reflection of ASB students’ interest to stay and work in Asia, particularly Malaysia, after graduation, irrespective of nationality.
- Technology and Innovation is dominating in terms of the volume of quality offers whereby 52% of students accepted job from this industry. This shows that there is a greater appreciation of the MBA within the region and globally in these sector.
For Class of 2020: Employment data will only be available at the end of July 2020.

Employer and SAP Hosts
I’ve had the opportunity to interact with ASB students both as an invited guest speaker and as a host for the Summer Associate Program. From these interactions, I found them to be highly motivated with an ability to think outside the box. They were socially integrated within the team and immersed into our work culture with ease. With these traits, they were able to deliver real value to our organization.
ASB has an entrepreneurial institutional culture that embraces innovation and encourages its students to be intellectually curious and to challenge the conventional wisdom of the day. Ultimately, I do believe that the skills, connections, and experiences that I take away from ASB will best prepare me for the rapidly changing and increasingly interconnected world of tomorrow.
