Universitas Sangga Buana, Indonesia signed a memorandum of agreement with eduCLaaS Pte Ltd, the international subsidiary of Lithan Academy from Singapore on 30th January 2021 to jointly offer applied undergraduate degrees 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 USB’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.” He further added, “We welcome Universitas Sangga Buana joining our Pan-Asia eduCLaaS platform for incubating Glocal (Global yet Local) digital talents ready for growth in the post-Covid digital economy.”
Dr. H. Asep Effendi, Rector of USB, said at the ceremony, “God willing, USB will hold the government’s Independent Campus program in September 2021 for all study programs. This collaboration with Lithan will provide new experiences and competencies for students who will later do the practical work in Industry, and this will be an added value to experience when they enter the world of work. Students who take part in this program will also get a certificate of competence from Lithan Academy.”
