CARING AND GLOBAL UNIVERSITY
Every year, International Business Management Program of Petra Christian University conducted local excursions, in which the students visit several companies in East Java in order to learn business strategies from the companies. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has caused all activities to be held online and students cannot have the experience to visit companies.
In order to ensure that the students can still learn business strategies from companies, this year's local excursion is conducted online via Zoom, called Virtual Excursion.
Virtual Excursion 2021 with the theme "Versatile" aims to help students to understand the steps required in choosing the right marketing management strategy to keep up with the changes that happen in the current environment, especially in this new normal era. Two speakers from two well-known companies were invited to share the marketing strategies of their companies in this new normal era. The first speaker was the founder of Miniletics, Billy Handoyo, which is also an IBM alumnus from batch 2012. The second speaker was the Regional Corporate Affairs Manager - East Indonesia of Coca Cola Amatil, Ms. Armytanti Hanum Kasmito.
IBM Business Competition is an annual business competition held by International Business Management Program of Petra Christian University for high school students all over Indonesia.

This year’s IBM Business Competition 2021 with the new theme of “Alteration: The Genesis of Triumph” would like to announce to all the participants, whom we call the Pioneers, to be aware of the importance of innovation in this current situation.

Following the pandemic regulations, this year’s event is fully conducted through online platforms. Zoom, websites, and LINE are the platforms being used by the 70 teams that joined Business Competition 2021.

Ice Breaking is an annual event held by International Business Management Program of Petra Christian University. The purpose of this event is to build strong relationships among students across batches.
As indicated from the theme of the event, “Amalgamation,” Ice Breaking 2021 aims to unite the upper with the lower batch. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused all activities to be held online which leads to minimal interaction between the upper and the lower batch. This condition is very unfortunate because the seniors play an important role in guiding their juniors to be able to navigate campus life at IBM. Hence, through the series of activities in this year’s ice breaking, we would like to connect the upper with the newer batch to help create a solid bond in the International Business Management Program.
For the first time, Ice Breaking 2021 is held online through Zoom. The sharing session as well as the games in the event have been arranged in such ways to not only build connections, but also to increase teamwork skills.
