After advancing to the main stage, Alicia, Chindy, and Natalien ended up nabbing the top spot after performing well in the jackpot solution game, and after proposing innovative business strategies for Gojek and Sociolla.

Congratulations on winning the First Place, Spacerangers! We are proud of you, and we are looking forward to hearing more great things from you. Remember, the sky is the limit: like the most famous space ranger once said, “To infinity, and beyond!” (Lightyear, 1995).
Our weekend has just been made that much brighter by the news that three Batch 2018 IBMers: Like, Thomas, and Joshua, won the first place in the Business Competition IMCB Day 4.0.

Biggest congratulations to Like, Thomas, and Joshua, whose wit, creativity, teamwork, and perseverance have propelled them the top! 🎉🎉🎉
One of the strong characteristics that IBMers will cultivate throughout their study at IBM is their teamwork skills. Jerico Sasmita Adi (IBM Batch 2020; front row, 3rd from the left) displayed his teamwork skills by joining forces with six other students from various departments at Petra Christian University in a National Short Film Competition (Lomba Film Pendek Tingkat Nasional) held by GEMONI. Their short film, titled “Re-Dream,” which raises the issue of gender inequalities, won two awards: the 1st place in the University Student Category, and 2nd Rank in Overall Champion. Congratulations to Jerico and his team for the excellent teamwork and outstanding achievement! You can watch the full movie at https://youtu.be/nn58kvzV0X0 😁
Sometimes we tend to forget that in order to reach the top, we need to climb a long flight of stairs first. Joshua Chang (IBM Batch 2018) displayed his wit and tenacity while participating in the 2020 National University Debate Championship (NUDC), an annual competition organized by DIKTI. Chosen as one of the official delegation members for Kopertis VII (East Java), Joshua worked together with Charaqua Vania (English for Creative Industries, Petra Christian University) during the competition, and they advanced together to the Semifinal round in the Open Category. By the grace of God, Joshua was awarded the 5th Best Speaker award after competing against the other 231 debaters, all of whom were qualified to compete at the National level.
We are proud that Joshua has gotten this far on his journey to the top. Congratulations, Joshua, keep moving forward, because you are well on your way!

IBM loves Bali!
This year IBM designated its destination for National Excursion in Bali, the tourist-attracting island from 6-10 January 2019. National Excursion is an event held by the International Business Management Program of Petra Christian University. IBM wishes to give students the chance to visit global companies and enrich their knowledge in this opportunity.
"National Excursion gives me the opportunity to open my mind and learn about new amazing things, especially when we spend most of our time in T5. However, what matters most is that we did our journey, together," said one of National Excursion participants, Hermawan from batch 2016. Another participant, Olivia Rahayu from batch 2016, said “National excursion gives me the opportunity to learn more from the local expertise that succeeds in bringing their own business to the national scale. Because in IBM usually, we learn more about International business, it is also important to know about our local business more.”
National Excursion 2019 gives special thanks to Secret Garden, Joger, ITDC, Gusto, Waterbom, and Krisna for having us.
