On Wednesday June 27, Dr. Arif Satria, the newly appointed rector of the Agricultural University Bogor in Indonesia (IPB), visited MSM. He was accompanied by Prof MA Chozin, Chairman of the IPB Board of Trustees.
With this visit, the rector underlined the importance of the strategic cooperation between the two institutions in the areas of management education and research and of sustainable science. MSM was represented by Prof Wim Naudé, Meinhard Gans and Huub Mudde.
The meeting resulted in mutual commitment to intensify the cooperation, building on the positive results of the last decade. It was agreed to give specific focus on stimulating (social) entrepreneurship, innovation and business models for a climate change resilient agricultural sector in Indonesia. Concretely, it was agreed to work hand in hand in the set-up of IPB’s new Centre for Transdisciplinary and Sustainable Science, and to explore MBA cooperation.
