In the year 2000, Yayasan BINA NUSANTARA (BINA NUSANTARA Foundation) decided to move the Graduate School to a new location at Senayan area named Joseph Wibowo Center (JWC). Within less than a year, the foundation acquired a piece of land and started construction of a new modern facility at Jalan Hang Lekir I No. 6, right in the middle of Jakarta‘s business district. The plan was that the new location should house not only the Graduate School, but also two new business units: BINUS UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL (international undergraduate program) and an adult continuing education program called the Executive Development Program.
Joseph Wibowo Center for Advanced Learning
The first Executive Director of the new business unit suggested that the name of the building should be dedicated to Bapak Joseph Wibowo, the founder of Yayasan BINA NUSANTARA, who passed away in 2001; hence, the Joseph Wibowo Center for Advanced Learning became the third campus of the university. In September 2001, BINUS UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL began its operations by launching its first program, Computer Science. Having started with only one partnership with an Australian university in 2001, BINUS UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL currently offers several programs to its students, all with streams, minors, dual degrees and partnerships with universities in Australia, Europe, Asia and New Zealand.
BINUS UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL students can choose programs with single or dual degrees in the areas of International Accounting & Finance, Visual Communication Design, Fashion, Communication, Film, Computer Science, Business Information Systems, Business Management &Marketing, and International Business, as well as a fast track Master‘s program in Business or Commerce. In 2013, the JWC campus was extended to accommodate a growing body of students. The FX campus was then opened to complement teaching and learning activities in BINUS UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL.
