Our program is designed to anticipate the rapid changing of Southeast Asian development. In which ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) is expected to take place in 2015. Hence, the needs to equip the program with ASEAN studies is eminent.
International Business Program at BINUS INTERNATIONAL strive to keep up with the latest ASEAN regional development, as well as the current business environment. A number of subjects is dedicated to cater ASEAN studies. One dedicated course; MGMT6107 Southeast Asian Culture, embeds an exiting immersion trip to several ASEAN countries in the region, that is packaged in the Passage to ASEAN (P2A).
PASSAGE TO ASEAN (P2A)
The P2A is an immersion program initiated by Rangsit University, Thailand. Binus University is proud to become part of its members, and to promote ASEAN countries for students. BINUS UNIVERSITY officially joined the P2A association in mind-2014 and is part of a network of ASEAN universities and higher education institutions that collectively serve to offer their students ASEAN preparation programmes.
On 24th April 2017, International Business students, who enrolled in Southeast Asian course, embarked on their first leg of the Passage to ASEAN (P2A) tour which ended on 3rd May 2017. A total of 39 BINUS UNIVERSITY students visited universities in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand.
The same year, BINUS UNIVERSITY collaborated with Mahasarakham University in Thailand, FPT University in Vietnam, and Mean Chey University in Cambodia. Students were given the opportunity to immerse themselves in a wide-range of cultural events as well as lecture sessions on the latest developments and contemporary issues regarding their host countries. Furthermore, students were asked to explain a specific topic of interest related to what they have experienced during the programme with the aim of providing an in-depth analysis and comparison to Indonesia; BINUS UNIVERSITY hopes this will further encourage its students to gain knowledge from other ASEAN higher education institutions how best to utilise such knowledge to better prepare Indonesia amidst a new era of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC).
With the implementation of the AEC, the P2A stands as a platform for the ASEAN’s brightest minds to form meaningful collaborations for a variety of opportunities. BINUS UNIVERSITY’s involvement in this association showcases the university’s active role in ensuring Indonesia’s next generation of leaders are fully prepared for the realities of the AEC as well as globalization.
