Asia School of Business (ASB)was founded jointly by the Central Bank of Malaysiaand MIT Sloan School of Management in 2015. ASB is known for its innovative MBA program, recognized as one of the most innovative in the world by publications like Poets & Quants. We provide a multicultural and intellectually stimulating environment for scholars from diverse disciplines. We promote high-impact academic research and embrace scholarship from multiple disciplinary perspectives.
The School’s campus is located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur with its diversity, strategic location and world-class infrastructure has been consistently ranked as one of the top 10 Asian cities. Kuala Lumpur has been ranked 94th in “The Global Livability Index 2023”, a list of cities ranked by their “livability” compiled by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), which saw the largest rise in rank, having moved up 19 places since 2022.
ASB offers an internationally competitive compensation package, relocation assistance, reasonable teaching load, generous research funding, and strong teaching support staff. In addition, all ASB faculty members have the opportunity to spend up to one semester as International Faculty Fellows (IFF) at MIT Sloan; they are provided with access to most MIT staff privileges. There are continuous interactions between ASB faculty members and MIT's faculty, fostering research and teaching development, creating a dynamic exchange of knowledge and ideas. This effectively strengthens the collaborative bond between ASB and MIT Sloan.
Applicants are expected to have solid training in Accounting or a related discipline. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. from an internationally recognized institution, and have a strong track record (or strong potential) of publishing in top international journals commensurate with rank. Applicants should be passionate about research, committed to excellence, and able to teach effectively in MBA, EMBA, and Executive Education programs. The successful applicant should also be willing to contribute in a proactive and collegial manner to institutional development as well as ASB’s national and international visibility.
Although not required, we consider favorably the applicants with a focus on Southeast Asia and/or experience in emerging markets. We also consider an interest in advising students’ experiential learning through group and individual “Action Learning” projects in partner companies, which is a distinguishing feature of our MBA program.
