RMIT sponsors CAUSINDY 2014

rmitWith the Conference of Australian and Indonesian youth fast approaching, we’re pleased to welcome RMIT University on board as the latest sponsor for 2014 Conference of Australian and Indonesian Youth.

RMIT is a global university of technology and design and Australia’s largest tertiary institution. The university is highly regarded for excellence in professional and vocational education as well as outcome oriented research.

We look forward to RMIT playing a leading role in the delivery of the conference with such a strong international reputation. RMIT has two campuses in Vietnam, a presence in Europe, and delivers RMIT programs through a number of partners in the broader Asian region. Close to a third of RMIT’s 82,000 student population is international – with close to 20,000 studying outside of Australia.

RMIT offers Foundation Studies and Joint Degree programs in Management (and soon also Accounting) in partnership with UPH in Jakarta. The University is also actively investigating options for developing a stronger presence in Indonesia.

We are also excited to be joined by Professor Andrew MacIntyre, who will be interviewing a senior Indonesian diplomat in a panel called “Behind Closed Doors”. Andrew is the Deputy Vice-Chancellor International and Vice-President of RMIT University. He has published widely on Southeast Asian politics, international relations in the Asia-Pacific region and, more recently, enhancing universities. He was the founder of the Australia-Indonesia Governance Research Partnership, and serves on the editorial board of the Bulletin of Indonesian Economic Studies.

It’s not long now till we welcome Andrew and the delegates to Jakarta, and we’re thankful to RMIT for sponsoring of what will be a great conference.
