Through a collaboration with Triputra Group, SBM ITB conducted a coaching program. This program aimed to help students to maximize their potential by learning together with the leaders at Triputra Group. 

The program started on 23 October 2020 with 6 coaching sessions for 10 weeks. This program was attended by 7 selected students of SBM-ITB coming from undergraduate and graduate studies. Then the students were coached by Suyanto Tjoeng (CEO Anteraja), Irianto Santoso (President Director of Dharma Group), Immanuel Adi (Chief of Corp Human Capital Management & Strategic Planning Triputra Group), and Dian Eka (VP Director PT. Pakoakuina).

SBM ITB Director of Communication and Alumni Relations, Dr. N. Nurlaela Arief, SE., M.A.B., highly appreciated this program and hoped that the collaboration between SBM-ITB and Triputra group will keep going. 

Through the program, students can enhance their skills and knowledge in the field they desire. They not only learn in theory but also through practicals such as by joining internships in Triputra Group. 

Thobie Danudoro, one of the students who joined the program, felt very grateful. Besides coaching, he also had an opportunity to do an internship in Anteraja which is a startup that belongs to Triputra Group. 

“There are tons of valuable lessons that I got from joining this program. However, one precious piece of advice that I would never forget is that a great character is more important than ever in today’s world professional career,” he said.

Thobie revealed that from the multiple coaching sessions, he got so many inspirations and valuable lessons. “Hard skill is important, but a great character is what ultimately drives you into success,” he added. 

Lastly, a student who is majoring in management Ilham Noer also got lots of benefits by joining this program. He was coached by Immanuel Adi (Chief of Corp Human Capital Management & Strategic Planning Triputra Group), Ilham revealed that there were lots of advantages he got during the program. 

“I got many things that are very fundamental in life that can guide my actions. The thing I like the most about joining the program is I got lots of knowledge that gave me a new perfective horizon to be the best person of mine,” he said.
