Graduates benefit from hands-on, experiential learning with real-world business case studies and internships. Supported by strong business advisory boards, the FOB offers innovative, relevant programs that align with the needs of modern businesses. Students in FOB are challenged to inquire, explore and communicate---vital skills required for leadership in Indonesia and abroad. Housed in world-class facilities in South Jakarta, students in FOB programs have access to a trading room, where students learn about capital markets and trading in a real-world environment using data from the Indonesian Stock Exchange. The FOB offers a learning community that provides students with an opportunity to learn from some of the best academic minds from Indonesia and the world.
A purpose built educational portfolio that focuses on delivering academic programs that align with the nation’s demand for highly-trained individuals to fill high-demand jobs in the business management, banking and financial services sectors. Programs in FOB are designed to meet the nation’s talent shortage and insure that all of our students are well-positioned to compete for jobs in Indonesia and abroad. According to Boston Consulting Group, the shortage of highly-trained managers at all levels required to fill jobs in Indonesian firms is already acute. FOB graduates have over 100% employment rate within 2 months of graduation
The language of instruction is English to prepare students for jobs with leading multi-national corporations.
Learn from the best faculty. Over 75% of faculty in FOB hold doctoral degrees. This is over 5x the average for other FOB’s in Indonesia. Many of our faculty also have degrees from foreign universities---providing them with a unique, international perspective that enriches the learning experience for our students. Students also benefit from numerous visiting lecturers from the United States who provide guest lectures on a regular basis at SU.
FOB is the only Faculty in Indonesia that offers an internationally recognized associate’s degree equivalent to the first two years of study at most American universities. Students seeking to study business abroad in the United States or in other overseas destinations can begin at Sampoerna University, complete their associate’s degree, and transfer to a foreign university to complete their bachelor’s degree in only two years. This saves students and families time and money over conventional study abroad programs.
One of the few Faculty in Indonesia to offer a concentration in finance and banking. As part of a unique partnership with HSBC to improve financial literacy and banking education in Indonesia, the curriculum has been developed in close partnership with banking experts at HSBC to align with the current needs of the banking and financial sector in Indonesia.
Real-world, experiential learning opportunities are provided by monthly CEO Talk Series (where leading CEO’s visit Sampoerna University and participate in a Q&A session with faculty and students), Company Visit Series (where students visit leading companies in and around Jakarta), Internship Opportunities in prestigious companies (such as The Big 4 Financial Firms (Deloitte, KPMG, PWC and E&Y), Unilever, 3M, Leo Burnett, etc), Investment Gallery and a Business Simulation exercise where students plan their own business and have it reviewed by an outside panel.
A unique study abroad opportunity for business students as part of our partnership with U.S. universities, students in FOB have the ability to study abroad and earn credit that directly applies to their degree at SU, pending one or two semesters at our US university partners.
Technology-enhanced teaching and learning. The teaching and learning environment integrates best-in-class digital resources that promote learning inside and outside the classroom. Technology is not just used as a social tool for enjoyment, but a powerful learning tool that allows students to create, explore and become creators of their own knowledge.
Curriculum that meets international standards---the curriculum offered by FOB at Sampoerna University has been co-developed to not only meet the national requirements (for the S1-Sarjana) but to exceed them by meeting American standards. FOB students have the opportunity to earn a U.S. Associate’s degree and/or Bachelor’s degree. All of our Indonesian S1 degrees include U.S. Diploma Supplements from leading American universities.
