A renowned institution with longstanding expertise on business education in IndonesiaContact Us
On 6th April 2017, Universitas Prasetiya Mulya launched its Global Executive MM Programme which is part of a new initiative forged between the university’s Graduate Business School and Erasmus University’s Rotterdam School of Management – an internationally well-known business institution that is globally ranked in the top 15. Through the introduction of the newly-formed graduate programme, both reputable universities are seeking to address societal challenges while also becoming a force for positive change by developing highly-adept graduates. The event was also merged with a business talk show session on the topic of “Global Competitiveness through Human Capital Development” which discussed in detail the role of talented leaders in pushing for sustainable growth. Attendees at the event included Rector of Universitas Prasetiya Mulya, Prof. Dr. Djisman S. Simandjuntak, Dean of Rotterdam School of Management at Erasmus University, Prof. Steef Van De Velde; Dean of Faculty of Business at Curtin University, Malaysia, Prof. Jonathan Winterton; Chairman and Board of Commissioner at POS Indonesia, Ir. Hasnul Suhaimi MBA, ACC; Dean of School of Business and Economics at Universitas Prasetiya Mulya, Prof. Agus W. Soehadi, Ph.D; and Vice Rector IV for External Cooperation at Universitas Prasetiya Mulya, Dr. Rer. Pol Ida Juda Widjojo, among many others.
The upcoming graduate programme – scheduled to begin class in October 2017 – is targeted for industry leaders, experienced professionals, and young entrepreneurs who are seeking to find solutions on global issues within a multicultural setting. Moreover, the Global Executive MM Programme will be taught in a contemporary learning environment by ensuring an equal balance between theoretical studies, discussions, and skills application as a means to adequately equip students with the necessary insights and capabilities to resolve issues impacting today’s global business climate. During his speech, industry expert and key speaker, Mr Hasnul, reiterated the importance for higher education institutions such as Universitas Prasetiya Mulya to provide the tools and resources for Indonesian students so as to bolster their competitive advantage in becoming business leaders in Indonesia as well as internationally; among the other aspect that was highlighted was the primary concern of CEOs in Asia Pacific over the availability of key skills for the next generation of leaders. These factors thus propel business schools across the globe to be at the centre of human development which has become the backbone of Universitas Prasetiya Mulya and Erasmus University’s partnership. As a fast-emerging university with a strong track record in producing graduates with an entrepreneurial spirit and business skills, Universitas Prasetiya Mulya in collaboration with Erasmus University’s Rotterdam School of Management is poised to deliver on its mission of fostering the future cohort of world-class industry leaders.
