First Graduates of CQU Jakarta and Bakrie Univ Campus in 2022

The emergence of a new variant of the covid-19 omicron at the beginning of 2022 is a sign that the danger of covid is still there. The learning system inevitably changes to protect themselves and others, for example by limiting face-to-face activities to prevent the spread of the virus.
As a result, teaching and learning activities are hampered. This is also supported by research conducted by the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), 80 million students in Indonesia experience learning disabilities. However, many students successfully overcome these learning problems and graduate with satisfactory results.
Central Queensland University (CQU) Jakarta Campus and Bakrie University have been working together for 2 years to advance Higher Education in Indonesia. From the results of this collaboration, on January 22, 2022, a graduation ceremony for the first batch of the Master of Management – ​​Master of Business Administration program was held.
“Congratulations because graduates who have made it through the pandemic now have more adaptive, skillful, and innovative abilities in learning so that later they can be directly applied to the real world of work,” explained CQU Chancellor Professor Nick Klomp in his speech.
“The pandemic has disrupted everything including learning but we as humans have to adapt to everything that happens in the environment. This course has allowed me to expand my knowledge and develop my business network,” explained one of the CQU graduates, Muhammed Iqbal Fajri.
