On 11th October 2016, Perbanas Institute received a visit by a team of educators from esteemed higher education institution, University of Science, Malaysia. The meeting sought to discuss a number of learning programmes that are able to be implemented by Perbanas Institute and its longstanding partner. Among the attendees during the full day event were Prof. Fauziah MD Taib, Ph. D. as Dean of University of Science, Malaysia's School of Management, Prof. Joriah Muhammadad, Ph.D. in addition to Perbanas Institute’s Dean of the Faculty of Economics and Business Dr. Hidajat Sofyan Widjaja, and Director of Cooperation & Internationalisation Mr Acong Dewantoro Marsono.
As an institution that is well-attuned to the dynamic changes within Indonesia’s higher education industry, Perbanas Institute thus prioritises on providing competitive curricula and well-qualified teaching professionals. Hence in keeping with this mission, Perbanas Institute and University of Science, Malaysia agreed to cooperate on a number of areas such as student & faculty exchange programmes, curriculum development, and training initiatives. Through this mutual partnership, Perbanas Institute is therefore able to better accommodate to the demands for advanced banking and finance education in Indonesia. Success in this regard is poised to bolster Perbanas’ position within Indonesia’s increasingly competitive higher education industry.
