MM Unpad is also known for its uniquesness in the study process, it has used an approach called “Collaborative Based Learning” (CBL). CBL focused on the collaboration between the faculty, students, practitioners, and stakeholders in co-creation value of education.
The CBL approach is applied at various subjects at our concentration, such as Strategic Management, International Business Marketing Management, Management of Customer Value Creation, etc. These subjects have been implementing the Collaborative Learning on Company-based Issues for many years.
This collaborative learning focuses on how to identify, analyze, and recommend alternative solutions by understanding real business problems of the company. This process is conducted in selected companies. The learning is conducted through discussion among students in understanding concept, issues, and application facilitated by the lecturer and the guest lecture from companies.
The odd semester of 2013, MM Unpad through Strategic Management class has selected nearly 30 companies and produced 30 book of case development. This method is continued and sustained as part of the sustainable distinctive advantage of MM Unpad.
The other strong identity of MM Unpad also is created from the application of the Collaborative Learning on Curriculum Development. Through this approach MM Unpad offers nine concentrations, namely, Marketing Management, Finance Management, Operations Management, HRM, Risk Management, Asset & Valuation Management, Hospital Management, Innovation & Entrepreneurship Management, and Higher Education Management. Each concentration is governed by Professors in their respective areas.
Each concentration has developed strong cooperation amongst industry as well as professional association i.e. MAPPI and APINDO particularly for curriculum and research development, case study building, project assignment, guest lecture, and etc.
Last but not least, MM Unpad looking forward to having a great collaboration with various stakeholders in pursuing centre of excellence in teaching, research and public services to enhance our Collaborative Based Learning.
