BINUS International Office

IAF Jakarta: ASEAN Business Experience



2016 will see the emergence of the first significant trading block since the establishment of the European Union. Known as the ASEAN Economic Community, it will bring a different way of doing business with the ten ASEAN countries. BINUS INTERNATIONAL’s International Accounting and Finance program has developed a program that will assist in doing business with these countries, both from within and outside the block.

This two-week cross-discipline program will use culture and demographics, politics, economics and regulatory issues to develop a framework to do business with ASEAN and associated countries. The program will examine how each of these elements combine and influence business outcomes in this new important trading block.

Successful completion of this program will lead to a six-week internship with an internationally recognized company in Indonesia.
