Globalization demands younger generation to be able to compete in the global labor market. In response to this challenge, Sampoerna University laid grounds for its students to enhance critical analysis, dare to innovate in science and technology, as well as acquiring future-oriented mentality. This was the message conveyed in the seminar titled “What It Takes to Become a Successful Global Citizen with American Education”, held by Sampoerna University.
Through this event attended by future students and parents, Laura Elizabeth, Director of Student-Parent Advisory Center, and Yovita Marlina as the Head of Student Recruitment Sampoerna Schools System, explain the seminar attendants on how to prepare young generation to become global citizen.
At the present, science and technology is increasing rapidly in America. Along with this scientific progress and the industrial growth, the demand for highly professional skills in this areas increase as well. In fact, it is estimated that 80% of current jobs require human resource that are expert in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math or commonly known as STEAM. This has led many universities in America to implement STEAM approach in their educational curriculums.
And future students in Indonesia no longer need to face difficulty if they want to acquire skills in STEAM areas that are equal to American universities. Sampoerna University offers future students enrollment in American College Program.
American College Program helps university students to obtain bachelor degree from America. This includes the opportunity to transfer courses credit to continue study in top universities in America such as Lone Star College (LSC), Broward College (BC), Louisiana State University (LSU) College of Engineering, and Oregon State University (OSU) College of Business. Besides enrolling in America for two years, students that enroll in this program can also choose to attend four years study in Indonesia and still obtain bachelor degree from America.
Through implementing educational curriculum that is equivalent to American universities and academic collaboration with prominent universities from the U.S, Sampoerna University envisions creating graduates that are work ready, world ready, and ready to lead. Future students that seek to enroll in American College Program can apply in the January Intake program.
