MIT’s motto since its founding has been ‘mens et manus’, or ‘mind and hand’. MIT was founded with the then strange notion, in the middle of the 19th century that you could do rigorous intellectual work, of the sort that professors did, on practical problems, of the sort that businesses faced. That notion has continued throughout MIT, throughout MIT’s history…….We will bring that attitude here [to ASB] not just doing hard technical work, but doing hard, serious work on important business problems. This, we hope and expect, will be a key part this new institution.

Richard Schmalansee,
Professor of Management Emeritus and Professor of Economics Emeritus MIT Sloan,
Co-Chair, ASB Board of Governors

The distinguishing feature of the Asia School of Business will be the use of #ActionLearningASIA. Every class and lecture that we offer will be connected intimately to the projects with companies and institutions in the region to allow the students to get a deep understanding of the application of the theoretical concepts in an applied setting and get a deep understanding of the business and political and economic issues that come to play in the region of Southeast Asia.
