    Due to its strong and continuous growth, the Asia School of Business (ASB) is seeking to hire multiple full-time, permanent, in-residence faculty in the areas of Business Analytics and Financial Technology starting in 2021. Appointments are made at Full Professor, Associate or Assistant ranks depending on research and teaching record, and, if applicable, on business experience. 

    About ASB

    ASB was founded in 2015 as a collaboration between the Central Bank of Malaysia and the MIT Sloan School of Management.  Located in the heart of the vibrant city of Kuala Lumpur, ASB was recognized in 2017 by Poets & Quants as offering "the most innovative MBA program in the world." Strong on action learning, the school's mission includes developing transformative and principled leaders, particularly focused on the emerging economies.

    ASB offers a multicultural and intellectually stimulating environment for scholars across different disciplines.  We promote high-impact and actionable academic research and embrace scholarship from multiple disciplinary perspectives. In addition to a full-time MBA and an MBA for Working Professionals, ASB is launching new concentrations in finance and central banking, with plans to add specializations and research in business analytics and fintech.   

    Each ASB faculty member has a research affiliate appointment at MIT Sloan School and may spend three to four months there as an International Faculty Fellow, focused on teaching and research capability development. ASB offers internationally competitive compensation packages, relocation assistance, generous research funding, and strong teaching support.


    Candidates are expected to have solid training in data analytics and in-depth understanding of the business applications of data analytics tools and methods. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. from an internationally recognized institution and have an established record (or strong potential) of solid scholarly research commensurate with rank.

    We favor applicants who are passionate about impactful and actionable research, committed to excellence, and who can demonstrate the ability or potential to teach effectively in MBA, Professional MBA, and Executive Education programs. The successful candidate should also be willing to contribute in a proactive and collegial manner to the School development as well as its national and international visibility.

    How to Apply

    Interested candidates are invited to send: (1) a cover letter, (2) a current CV, (3) a research statement, (4) one to three research papers, (5) a teaching statement and/or evidence of teaching effectiveness, and (6) contact information for at least two academic referees who will provide letters of recommendation to ASBfacultysearch@asb.edu.my.

    Review of applications is ongoing; however, we encourage further submissions before September 30th, 2020. Screening of applications will continue on a rolling basis until the positions are filled. Shortlisted candidates will be contacted to schedule virtual interviews via Zoom. We will host campus visits by invitation in the November/December 2020 if the Covid-19 situation allows for that. If not, the job-talks will be held online.
