ACTION LEARNING – A JOURNEY OF COLLABORATION

Action Learning is simply the process of learning by doing and doing by learning, guided by theoretical tools and frameworks and with the support of faculty, mentors and industry leaders. During the five terms, we take our students on a transformative journey during their 20-month program via five significant projects in Southeast Asia and beyond. The Action Learning course incorporates the teaching of multi-disciplinary theories and frameworks delivered in the classroom that connects to real problems faced by our partner hosts. Our promise to our hosts is simple: we will contribute to the development of the business ecosystem with extraordinary and unconventional talent. This talent is carefully selected and trained in an intense, applied, multicultural environment by MIT Sloan and ASB faculty through a reiterative applied process that will allow them to integrate, adapt and contribute to their new job fast and productively.

THINK – ACT – REFLECT – REPEAT

The ASB curriculum will feature the MIT Sloan Action Learning pedagogy: THINK – ACT – REFLECT – REPEAT. Sloan is the leader in Action Learning in management education and has held that esteemed position for several decades. This pedagogical approach develops principled, innovative leaders through the active integration of theory with real world practices and personal reflection. The method brings together faculty and students to tackle real world complex managerial challenges, and through this process, enhances students’ leadership capabilities.
