‘Mens et Manus’, Mind and Hand, has been the motto for MIT Sloan since its inception in the 19th century.

In today’s business world, this motto is undoubtedly more relevant now than ever, as the world needs leaders and change-makers who can be as adept at bringing leadership to a mature organization as they would be in a hands-on role building a start-up. Having this broad set of capabilities as well as graduating business-ready are why MIT Sloan MBA graduates are among the most sought-after by organizations.

Now, the genetic blueprint of MIT Sloan has been passed on to ASB. ASB will offer management students, management practitioners and the institutions that employ them innovative ways of doing things, learning, and thinking, together with a better integration of academic theories  with actual business practices.
