Sunday (17/10), President University (PresUniv) held the 16th graduation ceremony. This was the second graduation held virtually by PresUniv. The theme for this year's graduation was Enhancing Young Professionals' Resilience in Addressing Challenges during the Global Pandemic. This is considering the various challenges during this pandemic, and PresUniv has made various efforts to prepare the students to be able to compete in the work or business field.

Nearly 1,000 Bachelors (S-1) and Postgraduates (S-2) graduated this year. This year, there were 138 Cum Laude achiever: 97 Cum Laude, 37 Magna Cum Laude, and 4 Summa Cum Laude. Rector of PresUniv, Prof. Dr. Jony Oktavian Haryanto said, we are now in an increasingly advanced modern world and increasingly tougher competition, which does involve not only fellow humans but also machines or robots. He advised, "Therefore, you are all required to have more perseverance, skills, and dedication."

Prof. Jony said that he is not worried about PresUniv graduates who will always be ready to compete. Referring to the survey results, Prof. Jony said that 90% of our graduates get hired less than six months after graduation. While the rest are starting their own business, continuing the family business, or continuing their education to a higher level. "This result is certainly an achievement that shows PresUniv graduates are well received in the work and business world," he said. (Gilang Suryanata, PR team. Photo: Gilang)
