Indonesia has been seeing strong growth among the Emerging Market countries, aided in part by a robust domestic economy and a dynamic government that has stood by tax reforms and improved the country’s economic fundamentals. Further boosted by favourable demographics due to its enormous population size, Indonesia holds vast potential for investments and economic opportunities. Through this overseas experiential learning course, we seek to expose students to the geopolitical and economic outlooks that have characterised Indonesia’s contemporary socio-economic and business landscape today, tracing her transformation from a historically resource-exporting economy to one with new, exciting possibilities.
