The Indonesian Master of Management Programme Alliance organized a Financial Planning Workshop Series titled “Pathway to Prosperity for Academics.” Present as speakers were Ms. Handayani, Director of Consumer Business of Bank Rakyat Indonesia; Mr. Damar Latri Setiawan, President Director of Pegadaian and Mr. Iwan Pasila, President Director of BRI Life Insurance.
The participants of this event were lecturers, education staff, and students from 61 Master of Management programs of APMMI members. The theme presented was significant as it focused on a crucial aspect often overlooked in academic circles: personal finance and investment. Academics face unique financial challenges, including managing research grants, planning retirement, and making wise investment decisions. By inviting renowned speakers who are experts in investment strategies, this workshop series can provide academics with the knowledge and guidance needed to secure their financial well-being.
Divided into three sessions on 14, 21, and 22 July 2023, the “Pathway for Prosperity for Academics” workshop series provides an understanding of investment strategies, asset diversification and preparation before retirement; pawnshops as funding and investment alternatives, and the importance of insurance protection to ensure financial security and well-being. BRI, BRI Life, BRI Insurance, and PT Pegadaian sponsored this activity.
