I am a proud Monash graduate who had the opportunity to share my study experiences not only with brilliant and motivated classmates but also knowledgeable and friendly tutors and lecturers. The academics were a real stand-out for me as they have worked in the industry and bring so much industry-related knowledge and experience, which is distinct to Monash.
Monash is now in Indonesia, offering courses that cater to and are crafted specifically for the local audiences, combining local talent with global quality and mindset. This unique blend will not only boost the student experience but also nurture graduates to be the globally-ready workforce, capable of becoming the agents of transformation for Indonesia and the Southeast Asia region.
As one of the tech industry leaders in Indonesia, I am confident that the presence of Monash in Indonesia will bring a tech-revolution mindset and with it, a homegrown horde of tech talent.
