The Asian Business Student Association (ABSA) aims to unite JGSB students from an Asian descent, and/or interested in Asian culture and business perspectives under a common organization. ABSA strives to promote social integration among all cultures within the JGSB community and empower Asians to succeed in the modern business world. We do this by: 

  • Establishing learning and networking opportunities through interaction with the Asian community in Houston and beyond.
  • Educating students about the economic and business environment in Asia.
  • Increasing career opportunities and providing leadership experience for ABSA members.

Some of our past initiatives include:

  • India and China Jones Edge educational panels.
  • Educational lunches about different Asian cuisines.
  • "Transition to Houston" workshop.
  • Trips to cultural festivals.
  • Partnerships with other Asian student organizations.
