The University of Newcastle and BINUS University two degree program

The University of Newcastle has partnered with BINUS University in Jakarta to provide world class education in Indonesia. Through the two-degree program, students in Indonesia will be able to study for the two degrees completely in Jakarta.

Students will still be able to participate in an immersion trip, study abroad or exchange programs during their studies and experience studying in Australia.

Students will benefit from the industrial links and business network maintained by both schools. Both schools are also AACSB accredited, which is a mark of high-quality teaching and research. This ensures that the degrees are well recognised by employers and universities internationally.

Business Management and Marketing, Innovation and Entrepreneurship

  • Bachelor of Economics (major in International Business or Business Management and Marketing) awarded by BINUS University
  • Bachelor of Business (major in Entrepreneurship and Innovation) awarded by the University of Newcastle

    Program details

    This unique program allows students to gain two degrees through completing one program of study delivered entirely in English at the BINUS Business School in Jakarta. In the first part of the program, students undertake courses through BINUS and Goal Business Education. In the second part of the program, students undertake Newcastle courses taught at BINUS.

    Upon satisfactory completion of the all course requirement, students are awarded a degree from the University of Newcastle and a degree from BINUS University.

    The program can be completed entirely in Indonesia. In addition, the program allows multiple pathways for students to study across borders. Students who would like to study overseas may elect to study at Newcastle campuses in Australia or Singapore after completing at least one semester of study in Jakarta. Such students will receive full credit for University of Newcastle courses.

    Upon completion of the program, students will become part of three alumni networks:

    • The University of Newcastle

    • Goal Business Education

    As such, students benefit from a global professional network designed to enhance international employability and connections.
