Universitas Katolik Darma Cendika (UKDC), Indonesia signed a memorandum of agreement with eduCLaaS Pte Ltd, the international subsidiary of Lithan Academy from Singapore to jointly offer applied undergraduate degree CLaaS® in Indonesia.
CLaaS® delivers Competency Learning as a Service to support digital upskilling for higher education students, working adults and enterprises in the digital economy. It adopts work-based learning pedagogy with competency-based curriculum for blended learning journeys that deliver tangible career and business outcomes.
Under the partnership, Lithan at UKDC’s campus, will deliver applied degree courses with an international work-study journey where the learners gain up to three years of working experience before graduation.
eduCLaaS’s Founder and CEO, Leslie Loh said “Modern employers require plug and play graduates who could be productive from first day on the job. Our 1+3 work study degree delivers seamless job induction before graduation: with 1 year of intensive skills acquisition bootcamp and 3 years of on-the-job training at the workplace. Our learners are Glocal (Global yet Local) digital talents as they engage in borderless learning and working, alongside international learners and employers, supported by over 20 regional campuses from across Asia.”
Mr. Edwin Alexander, Head of Program Study of Information Science, says, “UKDC is a modern progressive institution and we don’t leave any stone unturned in offering our learners the best and the most relevant education. We want our students to be globally competitive and always be ahead in the job market or their social enterprises – hence our collaboration with Lithan for CLaaS degrees is a decision aligned with our goal. We have expectations from this applied education collaboration, and I hope to see prolific results in coming years.”
