Prasetiya Mulya has been participating successfully in international business competitions for the past four years. In 2008, the team representing the school came second in the renowned Global Social Venture Competition held at Haas Business School, University of California, Berkeley. In 2009, the school came in first place, ahead of 150 other business schools and was the first winner from outside the USA since the competition began 10 years ago. The winning business model was entitled ‘EcoFaeBrick’ and utilised animal waste to produce building materials in Yogjakarta, Central Java. In 2010, the school was once again recognised for innovation for its business plan entry that used solar power to desalinate sea water in coastal and remote areas of the country. The school also regularly participates in the Bangkok Business Challenge in Thailand.
The success in such competitions is testament to the success of teaching methods employing creative business plans and the implementation of the triple bottom line of ‘People, Planet & Profit’ in business methodology.
In addition to the school’s original campus at Cilandak, South Jakarta, Prasetiya Mulya unveiled their new second campus at Edutown, BSD City in August 2010. Situated among 5 hectares of land, the campus is within the 50 hectare education district of the rapidly developing satellite city on the outskirts of Jakarta. Designed to cater to the school’s growing undergraduate population, the initial intake will be 500 with the student body expected to reach 6,000 by 2020.
Being developed in several phases, the new campus already boasts cutting edge academic facilities, computer labs, a business library, Entrepreneurship Development Centre and an Indonesian Stock Exchange corner. Other features include a 400 seat cafeteria, two multi sports fields and amphi-theatre lecture rooms. The unique surroundings of Edutown, which is home to numerous local and international universities, creates a conducive environment for creative learning as the school continues to expand the scope of undergraduate programs that it offers.
