Our full-time, 20-month MBA program features a core curriculum taught at our state-of-the-art Malaysian campus by MIT Sloan and ASB resident faculty, complemented by an Action Learning curriculum built upon a series of projects with corporations, institutions, and entrepreneurial enterprises from across Asia.

The curriculum will also include a four-week residential program on the MIT Sloan campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, and an additional two-week international “industry trek” during which students will visit companies and institutions of interest in USA. To a significant degree, our classroom will span the globe, with projects and hosts across a broad geography complementing the core curriculum delivered on our campus.

The ASB MBA program is highly rigorous, so students must have performed at a superior level in their previous university studies, demonstrated the ability to pursue personal goals, exhibit a high level of personal integrity, and have professional work and or internship experience.

It is the goal of Asia School of Business to admit the most qualified applicants. Asia School of Business uses a “needs blind” admissions process that does not consider the economic status of the applicant and will work with admitted applicants to secure the financial assistance they need through scholarships and/or loans.
