Dean & Professor
Thomas Friedman was not far off the mark when he stated that “The World is Flat”. Although we know that the earth is not physically flat, and even the world is not really virtually flat, but the world has been getting much flatter. Globalization –the main phenomenon that is the essence of the flatter world- has been the hall mark of a lot of significant events – progress as well as crises – especially since the last 2-3 decades.
However, the features of current globalization are different from the previous versions of globalization. Globalization is no longer the arena for only countries and multinational companies. Individuals play increasingly more important roles in globalization. In addition, globalization is no longer one way from western countries. In the list of top 5 countries with highest total GDP (Gross Domestic Product) adjusted by purchasing power parity, there are countries from Asia (rank 2 China, 3 India, 4 Japan, 10 Indonesia) and Latin America (rank 7 Brazil). In the next couple of decades, the ‘map’ of the world economy will even be more dominated by non-western countries. China is predicted to overtake USA as the largest economy. Furthermore, according to a recent research report by McKinsey & Company – the top multinational consulting firm -, Indonesia will be the 7th largest economy by 2030, based on nominal (not even adjusted by purchasing power parity) GDP.
To cope with the fast-track changes, Indonesia needs plenty of high international-quality professional business people with deep-rooted local presence. This cannot be achieved by merely depending on high quality business education outside Indonesia. Indonesia needs local business educational institutions with high international quality. IPMI International Business School has been providing the solution to the needs since its inception in 1984.
As the pioneer of high quality international business education in Indonesia, IPMI –which has benefitted from having a strong commitment and support from Harvard Business School and INSEAD and its faculties in shaping IPMI’s early development - has produced a lot of successful graduates. IPMI’s alumni are among prominent business people (serve in Board of Directors of local and multinational companies, owners of successful companies, etc). IPMI’s alumni network contributes significantly to the learning process at IPMI as well as career possibilities and business opportunities for students and graduates.
By studying at IPMI, you will experience an international quality business education while still staying in Indonesia for a significant chunk of your studying period: Globally connected and locally embedded. With the support of international-quality lecturers, curriculum that is designed to cope with global business challenges, state of the art learning facilities (building, class-rooms, library, IT infrastructure, etc), cooperation with high calibre foreign universities (exchange student / faculty programs, joint research, etc), relevant-to-business learning methods (case study analysis, group discussion, company visit, prominent guest lecturers, etc), and a lot of other features that support business and global readiness, IPMI is well positioned to provide a memorable and impactful learning journey to our students.
