The International Business (IB) program focuses on implementing student-centered learning where the young minds are fostered not only through theories learned but also by providing a supportive environment for practice and discovery. As part of the Binus Business School International Undergraduate Program as the first private university in Indonesia to receive AACSB accreditation, IB aspires to be a purveyor of tomorrow’s leaders and entrepreneurs, thus evolving and adapting to the current business environment.
The IB program collaborates with prestigious partner universities that specialize in Entrepreneurship and Innovation and International Business and Trade. With eight double degree programs as an option of study abroad, exchange programs or immersion trips are offered to IB students for them to gain international exposure. Students are exposed to practical experience by partaking in the enrichment track offered by the program: internships, research, entrepreneurship, and community development, where hands-on learning experience cultivates not only hard skill competency but also hones students’ soft-skills.
Apart from learning global business and regional integration, the IB program is designed to cater to ASEAN-related subjects, which accommodates the need to equip the level of understanding of the business as well as cultural aspects in the Southeast Asian region. As part of the curriculum, students are required to join the Passage to ASEAN (P2A), an immersion trip to a number of ASEAN countries. This aligns with the application of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2016 for all ASEAN members. With the relevant entrepreneurial skills obtained in class, it is expected that the students can grasp a wide range of business environments.
Students are exposed to global business applications and practices from around the world. The program is taught by well-qualified academics from prestigious business schools complemented with rich industry experience. The program also draws extensively upon the teaching experience of its international collaborative partner universities. Our international learning experience prepares our graduates to successfully engage with prestigious SMEs and multinational organizations.
The International Business curriculum is designed to meet high expectations of a concise yet comprehensive context in the global business environment and with an entrepreneurial mindset. Starting September 2020, IB collaborates with the University of Newcastle (UoN) to offer a 4+0 program, in conjunction with its 3+1 and 2+2 programs. The 4+0 collaboration allows students to earn two degrees from Binus International and the University of Newcastle while conducting a full four-year study in Binus International. The 3+1 program enables students to undergo a 3-year on-campus learning and a 1-year off-campus experience, while the 2+2 program facilitates students to take the first two years at Binus International and the last two years at a chosen partner university. The four-year study program is intended to equip students with the fundamentals of international business and management competencies while emphasizing the understanding of doing business in an international context, combined with in-depth cultural experience. Current case studies, articles, and textbooks pertinent to Southeast Asia (ASEAN) and entrepreneurship are carefully selected to enhance the students’ global perspectives. The program also incorporates company visits and guest lectures from prominent industries to assist students to obtain a practical and dynamic outlook of today’s business environment.
The first year emphasizes the fundamental concept of management with a substantial assessment in terminology definitions and an explanatory context. In the second year, students are trained to develop their analytical thinking, equipped with case study applications, in order to gain a wider business perspective. The third and fourth years will concentrate on the final assessment through critical thinking discussions, case study enhancements, and an analytical final project that will accumulate and be completed by thesis writing as a graduation requirement.
