Description Thumb
As the saying goes, “We are like islands in the sea, separated on the surface, but connected in the deep”. We had a great re-connecting with alumni event last September 1st , called ReConnect with Alumni through book launching “Navigating Turmoil” . It was an amazing event as we heard speakers such as our notable alumni, Handry Satriago (currently CEO of GE Indonesia) share his experience on leadership.

We would love to have more of our esteemed alumni becoming speakers at IPMI, your home.

Derry Habir!
We are very happy that one of IPMI’s Founding Faculty member, and currently our Director of Case Center, Ahmad. D Habir, PhD., fondly known as Derry Habir, will be contributing to this newsletter.
Please enjoy his first writing below: 
Thank you all for your best wishes and prayers on my 70th birthday yesterday. It is all very much appreciated-almost as much as my appreciation for surviving this far! I thought I would reflect a bit on the first year at IPMI.

As some of you know, I was one of the five faculty members who first began teaching at IPMI back in 1984. Pak Sis (Pak Siswanto Sudomo) also taught for a bit but he was busy being our first Executive Director. You also know him as one of the two founders of IPMI, along with Pak Bustanil Arifin. Both of the founders were adamant about IPMI being a practitioner-oriented case based business school that was to be conducted in the English language. IPMI was the pioneer in doing so in Indonesia. One day, the full history of that founding should be told.
Unfortunately, Pak Sis is not doing well physically. He has a hard time getting around because a recent fall has made it difficult for him to walk. So Pak Hadi (Hadi Satyagraha, one of the five founding faculty) and I are planning to visit him sometime soon at his home in Pamulang. We also would like to go with the other two founding faculty, Pak Antarikso Abdurrachman and Pak Junius Tirok and we are trying to get in touch with them for a reunion of sorts.
But there are others who are still around who were there during the first year. Pak Sjoufjan Awal, who has his room opposite mine these days, was even earlier at IPMI - as a member of the Foundation, which began in 1983. Pak Takhul (Miftahul Hadi), who takes care of our Koperasi canteen now, was one of the first OBs (if not the first) who photocopied the cases that we used to teach every day (it was a full-time one year MBA program). Pak Warry Soemitro was reading those cases everyday as a member of the very first class of 1984. A successful banker, he has been one of our long-time faculty members. So those were some of the people you know who were part of the first year at IPMI. Others you know who came a little later at the Kemang campus were Pak Bambang Gunawan, Bu Wiwiek Daryanto and Bu Amelia Naim. But that's a story for the next installment. I hope I haven't forgotten anybody else-let me know if I have.

Thank you again for your well wishes on my birthday. Happy to have you all as my colleagues. Have a great weekend!

Abipriyadi Riyanto
This issue takes pleasure in presenting Abipriyadi Riyanto as an IPMI Influencer.
Born in Jakarta on October 2, 1957, Abiprayadi Riyanto is currently the Finance Director of PT WIKA Gedung Tbk. He holds a Master of Business Administration from IPMI, Jakarta and a degree in Civil Engineering from Gadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta. He began his career in Investment Management, Mutual Funds and Investment Banking in 1990 and several of his previous positions include MessPierson Finances Investment Management Associate Director, ABN AMRO Asset Management Indonesia President Director & Country Manager, Technical Advisor, Managing Director, President Director of PT Mandiri Investment Management and President Director of PT Mandiri Sekuritas.
“Recognizing the importance of education to broaden horizons and strengthen careers at that time,
I decided to start looking for the best education to take. I discovered IPMI through an advertisement in the media and even further when doing sit-in classes and meeting Mrs. Tya Adhitama. My own interest in the world of education dared myself to take student loans and participate on the entrance test at IPMI Business School. When I passed the test, I felt I had a new world to explore.

Choosing IPMI was not without reason. At that time, IPMI was the best management school in Jakarta based on learning case study methods and teaching about management in its entirety with English as the presenting language. This gave me different insights about a company and what is needed in managing the company both from strategy, leadership, how to communicate, and the success of the company.

At that time IPMI had great teachers and most of them were doctoral candidates from Harvard. And we had the opportunity to get closer and share knowledge with premium services. I still remember exactly how we first studied with a stack of books that discussed case studies and we approached them and found to solve them. And we were among the lucky children because when we graduated from IPMI, we were sought by the industry to develop our capabilities in the real world. Learning a lot of things about general management eventually changed me to be able to become what I am today.

The learning methods at IPMI such as class participation, and expressing many cases from large companies made me able to reach my current position. When I graduated, IPMI helped me to develop my Investment Management career in Reksadana until I became the chairman of the association. It has changed my perspective and insight to be very broad and made it easier for me to develop my career.

The leadership that I have applied up to now is a product printed by the teaching at IPMI. Leadership, character building, independent, create your own, management and discipline and integrity are things I learned at IPMI and I hold on to this day in my career.

Success for IPMI, I hope to continue to be able to provide quality teaching and meet industry needs to welcome the industry era 4.0 “

Maritime Outlook 2019 Seminar at IPMI
The Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi expressed his desire to continue improving the quality of human resources, to support Indonesia as a maritime country. This was conveyed by the Minister of Transportation in the 2019 Indonesia Maritime Outlook Seminar held at our campus, IPMI, Wednesday, August 15 2018.
"If we talk about maritime it will be relevant when we talk about Human Resources. Because we can talk about outlook, where we make a theme about building the readiness of human resources in order to realize Indonesia as a maritime country. This is a good theme, we also photograph ourselves that one thing must be improved, "said Minister of Transportation Budi.
Based on the data provided by Central Statistics Agency (BPS) in 2018, the maritime contribution to the Indonesian economy is still very small, that is until now only around 13.32%, in contrary, most of Indonesia's territory consists of sea. Therefore, the Minister of Transportation hopes that the younger generation in Indonesia will make efforts to master the maritime sector and bring good changes.

Also attending the event were prominent officials such as the Special Staff to the Minister of Transportation for Economic Affairs and Transportation Investment, Prof. Wihana Kirana Jaya, Special Envoy of the President of the Republic of Indonesia for Establishing Maritime Boundaries H.E. Amb. Dr. Eddy Pratomo, Chairman of INSA Dr. Drs. Ec. Theo Lekatompessy, MBA., M.H., LL.M and Director of Port of Rotterdam Mr. Willem Dedden.

IPMI International Business School will soon open an MBA program in Maritime Supply Chain in collaboration with STC International and PT. Etsi Hutama Maritim.
