Overview of MBA for Working Professionals in Asia School Of Business Malaysia


Modeled on MIT Sloan’s curriculum, the MBA-WP provides each student with a general business degree, mixing classical business foundations with cutting-edge theory and application.

Roughly half of our courses are taught by award-winning visiting MIT faculty, with the other half taught by resident ASB faculty who are also International Faculty Fellows at MIT.

We aim to deliver the best of both worlds: the reputation and knowledge of MIT Sloan and the uniquely Asian perspective of ASB.
