ACICIS Business Professional Practicum

“The host was excellent. Atma Jaya University offered us excellent facilities so much, so that we felt like we were at our home university. The supervisors were present and happy to engage with students.  My biggest take away was learning how other cultures work in office environments specifically in regards to communication. This can be applied to any job. The highlight for me would learning the language and being able to speak to locals after only a few weeks. 

This was the best study experience I have ever had and it was excellent meeting so many people.”
