Curriculum trend at BBS is also affected by global business development. The first curriculum trend is shifting from discussion of business case studies to studies of current business cases. “Currently, there is a change of trend in study of business case from old to current case. From case study to living case study. The rapid change of business environment lately has forced students of business schools to discuss the latest business case,” explains Firdaus A. Alamsjah.
