Trilogi University is a newly established university formerly known as STEKPI, one of Indonesia’s leading business schools based in Jakarta, founded in 1988 under the Jakarta Education Development Foundation. The school has always focused on providing the highest level of teaching quality and professionally experienced faculty members to prepare graduates for immediate entry into the workplace through extensive soft skill development alongside practical knowledge.
Over the decades, STEKPI has undergone a series of revitalisations in order to adapt and keep pace with the educational needs of Indonesia’s banking and finance sector. The recent development of Trilogi University is a reflection of Indonesia’s rapid economic development and the need for more creative and technology savvy entrepreneurs as well as improved sustainability within the areas of food and energy.
Trilogi University now offers a comprehensive range of new courses for graduates and undergraduates including Bioindustry and Telematics in addition to the continuation of STEKPI’s business and finance programs. The curriculum of each course has been carefully designed taking into account the latest trends in the industry as well as instilling the values of ‘teknopreneurship’ whereby students are encouraged to create business ventures which benefit the surrounding community.

Established in 2013, Surya University is a private educational institution positioned at the forefront of research and innovation in Indonesia. Under the guidance of founder Prof. Yohanes Surya, PhD – a name synonymous with the advancement of education for his work as a physicist and longstanding coach of the hugely successful Indonesian Physics Olympiad Team – the university has quickly asserted itself as the future of Indonesia’s tertiary education sector, driven by a faculty of highly motivated doctorate degree holders already regarded as global leaders in their fields.
In distinguishing itself within a market soon to benefit from a young demographic increasingly drawn to the advantages of an international standard education, Surya University proactively addresses issues that have long hampered the development of skilled human resources in Indonesia. In addition to advancing Indonesia’s currently lack lustre capacity for scientific research through the introduction of more than 75 on campus research centres; the university prioritises collaboration with government organisations and private sector companies. This ensures that they readily anticipate industry demand and areas most in need of talented graduates with the potential to become leaders of business and academia. A keen understanding on what Indonesia needs to become a mature economy manifests itself in the provision of highly specialised programs on subjects such as plantation agribusiness, biotechnology and environmental engineering.
Going forward, Surya University in 2015 will mark the next phase of its ascent to the top of the higher education sector with the opening of its new ultramodern campus in Serpong. The university also intends to further its local presence by reaching out to lesser served parts of the archipelago and offering full scholarships to the country’s most talented students; thereby building a strong nationwide human resources base prepared to contribute to Indonesia’s development.
