ACICIS’ Indonesian Business, Law and Society Program (IBLS) is a semester-long program hosted by the Indonesian Islamic University (UII), Yogyakarta. Taught in English, this program provides students with a comprehensive understanding of Indonesian business, law and society at regional and global levels, as seen from an Indonesian perspective, while developing necessary critical skills to enter their respective fields.

New Colombo Plan Mobility Grants of $5,000 are available to ACICIS member university students participating in this program in 2016 and 2017.

See here for more information about the ACICIS New Colombo Plan Mobility Program Funding.

Students enrol in subjects at UII’s International Schools located within the Faculty of Economics and the Faculty of Law. These subjects cover a range of thematic areas within business, law and society.

The IBLS also offers students the option to undertake a ‘professional placement’, enabling students to put their studies into practice and gain a real-world experience outside the classroom. Students are placed with local commercial firms, community-based organisations, government bodies, and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and are given the opportunity to develop important skills in legal advocacy, public relations, administration, finance, research and reporting.

The IBLS has been designed for students with no existing Indonesian language skills; however, students with existing language skills are welcome to participate. This program also includes Indonesian language classes at a beginner, intermediate, or advanced level.
