Indonesia's best business students are to be offered the opportunity to study in Sydney for two years and build networks that will help them throughout their business career.

The Australian School of Business at the University of New South Wales and BINUS International, the leading private university in Indonesia, have announced a new degree that will give BINUS International's undergraduate students the opportunity to spend two years studying in Indonesia and two years at the Australian School of Business.

Professor Alec Cameron, Dean of the Australian School of Business, said "we are excited at this opportunity for around 20 students a year to participate in the new 'Bachelor of International Business - Bachelor of Commerce'. This is only the first stage. I foresee an exciting future with a number of mutually beneficial initiatives, including the opportunity for Australian School of Business academics to work at BINUS International and vice versa, and the prospect of collaboration on joint research activities."

Professor Cameron is signing the agreement today in Jakarta. It is the first formal partnership between the Australian School of Business and an Indonesian University.

BINUS International is the leading private university in Indonesia, based in Jakarta, and part of the larger BINUS University group. Courses are taught in English and it has connections with universities around the world. It is ranked 4th by QS Top Universities, and it has been awarded an 'A' research rating by the Indonesian government.
