The School of Business and Management Institut Teknologi Bandung (SBM ITB) has five educational programs:
Bachelor’s Degree in Management and Bachelor’s Degree in Entrepreneurship (Undergraduate Program), Master’s Degree in Business Administration (MBA Program), Master’s Degree in Science Management (MSM Program), and Doctor’s Degree in Science Management (Doctoral Program). There are other divisions as well, such as Center of Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Leadership (CIEL), Consultancy and Continuing Education (CCE), Center of Knowledge for Business Competitiveness (CK4BC), and Indonesian Business Case Center (IBCC).
SBM received a awards from many institutions. Such as Indonesian Best B-School 2009 from SWA Magazine, Indonesia Best School of Management 2013 from Mix Marketing Magazine, KIN Award 2013 in recognition of the continuous commitment in innovation, and many more. We also strongly encourage and support our students to have global careers. Numbers of SBM students’ achievements in national and international competition, such us in L’oreal Brandstorm competition, SBM always on top three national team these recent years. The highest achievement in 2011, when Ganesha Team got the 3rd place among 45 countries at Paris.
In national level, the accreditation process for each program study should follow the requirement by BAN PT-is an independent accreditation agency for higher education, directly responsible to the Minister of Education and Culture, Republic of Indonesia. In international level, the accreditation process that have been pursued by SBM is ABEST21 (The Alliance on Business Education and Scholarship for Tomorrow, a 21st century organization) for MBA program study, and will be aim for other international accreditation, such as: AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System), and AMBA (Association of MBAs).
What distinguishes SBM with other educational institutions? We do not look at hard-skills (data processing, etc) as everything, even success itself depends more on soft-skills (ability to work in teams, leadership, etc). To us, studying is not necessarily attending lectures. Effective learning occurs in discussions and in practices.
Students of the Bachelor’s Degree in Management are obliged to create a company funded by a loan from a reputable private bank. They study business by running it. Not only they learn the theories, but they also apply the theories by developing their soft-skills simultaneously. This is the concept that inspires a number of universities throughout Indonesia.
The education in business and management is very strategic for the national development. Realizing this, Lembaga Pengembangan Perbankan Indonesia (LPPI) helped us to further develop the MBA education in Jakarta, that resulted in Executive MBA in Sharia Banking & Finance in Jakarta. These programs completed the similar collaborations we have with PT Chevron Indonesia, PT Freeport Indonesia, PT Angkasapura II, and PT Krakatau Steel.
Furthermore, the international setting was supported by the presence of international students and lecturers in our daily activities at SBM. We hope there will be more international students enrolling at our school in addition to the students from our partner institutions: University of Groningen (Holland), University of St. Gallen (Switzerland), Nanyang Business School (Singapore), Tokyo University of Science (Japan) and many more universities.
In order to strengthen the dynamics and the knowledge exchange, we invited several Visiting Professors from all over the world. Until the present time, there were Mark Marrison, Ph.D (Daniel Webster College, New Hampsire); Prof. C.W. Watson (Kent University, UK); Prof. Richard W. Moore (California University, USA); Prof. Larry Michaelsen (Central Missouri State University, USA); Prof. Rushami Yusoff (Universiti Utara Malaysia); Prof. Deguchi and Prof. Kijima (University of Tokyo), just to name a few.
