ACTION LEARNING – A JOURNEY OF COLLABORATION

Action Learning (AL) 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, via five significant projects in Southeast Asia and beyond, we take our students on a transformative journey during their 20-month program.

In each term, we source projects from various departments (e.g. marketing, strategy, operations) from host companies across multiple industries (e.g. finance, manufacturing, supply chain).

OUR METHODOLOGY – THINK – ACT – REFLECT – REPEAT

The ASB curriculum will feature the MIT Sloan Action Learning pedagogy: THINK – ACT – REFLECT – REPEAT. MIT 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.
