How we began our journey in developing the best business school in Indonesia.
A team was assigned to develop a vision and mission statement and to design learning methods best suited to the program. The team developed a curriculum which was considered a breakthrough in business and management education in Indonesia. It proposed the use of performance art to develop students’ self-confidence as well as skills in leadership, communication, and conflict resolution. In line with a social constructionist paradigm, the curriculum emphasized the importance of team-based learning as opposed to one-way lecturing.
The nomenclature “School” was chosen instead of “Faculty” to signify its autonomy. In the process, the MBA program which was initially run by the Faculty of Industrial Engineering, became part of the School of Business and Management, allowing it to have two programs; the undergraduate program and the MBA program. Since then, SBM ITB has been a pioneer of campus autonomy in ITB. SBM ITB has full authority to make decision sat the strategic.
Research is the cornerstone of this program. Other than Quantitative Research Methods, the program also introduces Qualitative Methods in the first year of education as a basic alternative of research. SBM ITB offers scholarships for the MSM program.
Jakarta Campus was established with the MBA program as the pioneer program.
The team developing the proposal consisted of Prof. Togar Simatupang, Dr. Gatot Yudoko, and Dr. Deddy Koesrindartoto. The doctoral program covers a wide range of management discipline in order to develop and contribute to the body of knowledge of business and management. The research paradigm is not limited to positivism, but also interpretivism, and criticism.
