Located in Kuala Lumpur, right in the heart of Southeast Asia, Asia School of Business (ASB) is a partnership between MIT Sloan and the Central Bank of Malaysia. This innovative program provides ASB an opportunity to develop the next generation of leaders in the rapidly growing Southeast Asian region. ASB offers a full-time, 20-month MBA program based on the rigor of MIT Sloan's curriculum, with a focus on Asia's dynamic business environment. MIT Sloan and ASB faculty teach in the program, and students take classes in both Kuala Lumpur and in Boston. The ASB curriculum is unique in its use of Action Learning as the core part of the educational process – it comprises roughly a third of the curriculum. ASB targets extraordinary and unconventional candidates and has a special admissions track for those with non-traditional backgrounds.
