President University is a 100% English-speaking higher education institution in Indonesia, which was established to become a research and development center in the region and to set a new benchmark in Indonesian higher education. Specifically, the university was formed to create an institution of learning, which would prepare the future leaders of industry and society by giving them the skills and experiences necessary to excel upon graduation.
According to one of the founders of President University and also the Chairman of Jababeka Group, Mr. Setyono Djuandi Darmono, President University was built for two reasons: to become a research and development center and to set a new benchmark in Indonesian higher education. The founders of President University laid down the foundation and groundwork to ensure that President University will develop into a great institution of learning where students from all parts of the world can acquire knowledge and develop into useful yet responsible citizens and future leaders.
President University is strategically located in Jababeka Education Park in Kota Jababeka, just 45-minute drive to the east of Jakarta, Indonesia. The Jababeka Industrial Estate is one of the largest and integrated industrial areas in South East Asia and a home of 1,700 multinational companies from 30 countries, i.e. USA, CANADA, Germany, France, UK, the Netherlands, China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, and Australia, surrounds it. The companies, amongst the others are L’Oreal, Unilever, Samsung, Mattel, ICI Paint, and Kraft, can be leveraged as a “living laboratory” for our students and faculty members to develop practical solutions for real-life companies, and also serve as a limitless pool of internship/on-the-job training opportunities for the students.
As a relatively young university with about 5,000 total students at the moment, not only are the classes conducted in English to instill global perspectives and improve competitiveness, but President University is also equipped with an international-standard curriculum which was prepared and developed by world-class academics. This is in line with the university’s vision to become a world-class university that produces leaders in their respective fields and communities.
