The relatively new IAB is dedicated to education and research on contemporary Asia, essentially its economic and business dimensions. It generates knowledge and insights about Asia and disseminates them in a manner that is useful to public policy-makers, decision-makers in business, academia and civil society. The IAB undertakes collaborative research across a range of disciplines and organizes seminars, executive education programs and conferences on themes of interest to the stakeholders. It will be a primary resource to SolBridge students, faculty and alumni. While dedicated to Asian economy and business, the IAB promotes a global mindset, thus integrating the Asian perspective with the global. There are currently four individual centers that comprise the IAB: Global Business, Sustainable Development, Convergence Management and Asian Management.
