It is agreed that case studies are an important approach to teaching and learning. Case studies are an approach that the lecturers of the MM (Magister Managemen) program at BINUS BUSINESS SCHOOL often use in the classroom. Adopting the case study approach used by Harvard Business School, the MM program uses case studies from Indonesia-based research to ensure the approaches used are timely and relevant.
This is what Firdaus A. Alamsjah, Ph.D., the Executive Dean of BINUS BUSINESS SCHOOL, reiterated during a comparative study done by the Kalbis Institute on April 3. The study was held at the Joseph Wibowo Center campus and attended by faculty members of the university and also representatives from the BINA NUSANTARA-backed Kalbis Institute.
In the friendly meeting, both parties shared knowledge and experiences they have gained. Often, representatives from Kalbis Institute asked questions regarding the teaching and learning process, including the case study approach adopted by BINUS.
The approaches adopted in Indonesian campuses also became the focus of discussion that day. Firdaus explained the case study approach clearly and thoroughly to the representatives from Kalbis Institute.
Firdaus said case studies were an important approach to the learning process on the MM program. Choosing cases from Indonesia is not without merit. Localized case studies more closely match the students’ needs, as what they learn are cases they themselves may face either in their own companies, or in other enterprises.
“So, we believe tackling cases happening in our own country will make students more excited in the discussions as they understand more closely what is happening,” Ferry said.
Firdaus also discussed several important matters that are applied in the teaching and learning process of the MM program. Topics such as curricula development strategies, teaching methods, standard operational facilities, service levels, and marketing were presented by Firdaus.
Representatives from Kalbis Institute did not want miss the opportunity to ask about the management of the campus. While talking about the conditions at Kalbis Institute, Dr. Dion Dewa Barata, SE., MSM, Head of Magister Study Program and the Dean of the Faculty of Economics of Kalbis Institute, asked about the teaching and learning processes at BINUS. “As a continuously developing campus, Kalbis Institute is on the right track and is learning as much as it can from BINUS.” said Dion.
