Learn from the best faculty. Over 75% of faculty in FOB hold doctoral degrees. This is over 5x the average for other FOB’s in Indonesia. Many of our faculty also have degrees from foreign universities—providing them with a unique, international perspective that enriches the learning experience for our students. Students also benefit from numerous visiting lecturers from the United States who provide guest lectures on a regular basis at SU.
FOB is the only Faculty in Indonesia that offers an internationally recognized associate’s degree equivalent to the first two years of study at most American universities. Students seeking to study business abroad in the United States or in other overseas destinations can begin at Sampoerna University, complete their associate’s degree, and transfer to a foreign university to complete their bachelor’s degree in only two years. This saves students and families time and money over conventional study abroad programs.
One of the few Faculty in Indonesia to offer a concentration in finance and banking. As part of a unique partnership with HSBC to improve financial literacy and banking education in Indonesia, the curriculum has been developed in close partnership with banking experts at HSBC to align with the current needs of the banking and financial sector in Indonesia.
Real-world, experiential learning opportunities are provided by monthly CEO Talk Series (where leading CEO’s visit Sampoerna University and participate in a Q&A session with faculty and students), Company Visit Series (where students visit leading companies in and around Jakarta), Internship Opportunities in prestigious companies (such as The Big 4 Financial Firms (Deloitte, KPMG, PWC and E&Y), Unilever, 3M, Leo Burnett, etc), Investment Gallery and a Business Simulation exercise where students plan their own business and have it reviewed by an outside panel.
A unique study abroad opportunity for business students as part of our partnership with U.S. universities, students in FOB have the ability to study abroad and earn credit that directly applies to their degree at SU, pending one or two semesters at our US university partners.
Technology-enhanced teaching and learning. The teaching and learning environment integrates best-in-class digital resources that promote learning inside and outside the classroom. Technology is not just used as a social tool for enjoyment, but a powerful learning tool that allows students to create, explore and become creators of their own knowledge.
Curriculum that meets international standards—the curriculum offered by FOB at Sampoerna University has been co-developed to not only meet the national requirements (for the S1-Sarjana) but to exceed them by meeting American standards. FOB students have the opportunity to earn a U.S. Associate’s degree and/or Bachelor’s degree. All of our Indonesian S1 degrees include U.S. Diploma Supplements from leading American universities.
