Working Across Borders 2020 Winners

Congratulations for our students from Binusian 2022: Aurelia Rachel Santoso, Daisy Deria Florencia, Rizqa Nadhifa Hafshah, and Emmanuella Patricia Tandi Payung, for their wins in Working Across Borders project! Aurelia and Daisy were part of the group that won the best video production and the highest score categories, while Dhifa and Patricia were part of the group that won the overall project presentation category. The project was part of the Cross Cultural Management course that our students are taking in this semester, where they work in multi-national teams from different institutions on a research project for a client company, who is looking for sustainable solutions to develop its business operations in assigned target countries. The duration of this project is approximately 3 months and in total there were more than 500 students who participated in this project. The participating institutions are as follows:

  • Binus University International, Indonesia
    • CIS, Gestione d’Impresa Italy
    • Daffodil International University, Bangladesh
    • DOBA Business School, Slovenia
    • Durham College Oshawa, Canada
    • Inholland University of Applied Sciences, Netherlands
    • Laurea University of Applied Sciences, Finland
    • Plekhanov Russian University of Economics, Russia
    • Universidad Católica de Santiago de Guayaquil, Ecuador
    • University Colleges Leuven-Limburg, Belgium
    • Zittau/Görlitz University of Applied Sciences, Germany

Aurel and Daisy’s group proposed influencer campaigns, creating posters, and conducting TikTok contest. Patricia and Dhifa’s group proposed do-recycle project, educate consumers, and get rewards. All of their proposals are related to the SDGs (sustainable development goals) as set by the United Nations. This project aims to provide students with an opportunity to experience the challenges and workarounds of doing a multi-location and multi-cultural project that focuses on sustainable business opportunities for an internationally oriented client, Seventh Generation. Through this project, students got the opportunity to experience the realities of multicultural, multi-location online collaboration, deepen understanding of the challenges involved and develop effective team working skills. In addition, students can also gain an understanding of one’s own profile as a team worker, practice using and applying different online collaboration tools, learn about sustainable business opportunities and develop and/or create solutions to the proposed sustainable challenge, and act as a professional business consultant and team member. We believe that this rewarding experience will enrich our students’ international exposure and will prepare them for their future career.

Once again, we would like to congratulate our students and we are very proud of their achievements!
