BINUS UNIVERSITY was recently named as an official partner for the upcoming 2018 Asian Games — a pan-Asian multi-sport event which will be held in Indonesia. In cooperation with the Indonesian government and local universities, the Games’ organizing committee and host broadcaster, IGBS, launched the Broadcaster Legacy Program, which will enable participants to gain practical experience in the fast-paced world of sports broadcasting. As such, BINUS UNIVERSITY encourages its students to apply — 285 have successfully done so — with final selections starting on 15th January 2018 and ending 2nd September 2018.
The Broadcaster Legacy Program will provide opportunities for students under two initiatives: the internship program, and the Vignette short film competition. Under the internship program, students can attain technical skills for a variety of media-related fields ranging from camera assistant to engineering assistant, and logistics support; among many more. Through the short film competition, students will be asked to produce a dynamic and original promotional video that incorporate the themes of: ‘Unity and Diversity', 'The Energy of Asia', 'The World is Watching', and 'Preparing for Triumph’ — submissions are open until May 2018 and the winning video will be used to promote the 2018 Asian Games worldwide.
It is due to its extensive network of international and local partners that enables BINUS UNIVERSITY to foster innovative strategies to enhance students’ learning experience. This latest collaboration will thus aim to equip students with the foundations of management, communication and creativity; empowering them with the essential tools needed to become complete solution providers and global industry leaders.
