Indonesians are taught to have a caring character towards the people around them. According to the quote “Tak kenal maka tak sayang”, the first batch of Business Economics students held a bonding program where all went to Puncak and had fun! Students went on night safaris, did midnight sports, held barbecues, did morning-swimmings, and of course, had endless eating sessions! If you want to be part of the Business Economics family, make sure you join the bonding program!

The program’s first company visit was to the Nielsen Company. Nielsen is a leading global information and measurement company, providing market research insights and data on people’s activity. It was a very enjoyable experience learning about tips and tricks on how to retrieve the most accurate information.
