CAREER PATH & OUTCOME

Career Path

Are you Asia-ready? Southeast Asia is the world’s fastest-growing region by GDP, with the highest relative salary increases for MBA graduates due to a significant talent deficit.

Accelerating your career in Asia is a smart move, and the best way to do so is by earning an MBA degree from a school that understands the market best.

At ASB, we maintain deep relationships with over 150 corporate partners in the region, and our career development curriculum is tailored for Asia’s hiring environment.

Many of our graduates from around the world transition into management positions in Asia, further strengthening the global ASB network year after year.
