UT Korea: Introduction to Business

“If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.”
― Margaret Fuller

Last year, I joined Indonesia Open University (Universitas Terbuka) in Korea as a tutor/lecturer. Universitas Terbuka (UT) is an Indonesian university that applies long distance and open learning system. Most students are working full-time and not able to further their studies in face-to-face prominent higher education institutions in a daily basis. In UT Korea, they have both face-to-face and online tutorial; half of all courses in the curriculum are delivered with face-to-face tutorial every week, and another half with online tutorial. Here in Korea, they provide only three undergraduate programs: Management, Communication Science, and English Education.

I participated in Management program, teaching Introduction to Business. It is a fundamental course to provide basic framework thinking for students to learn advanced courses such as: HR Management, Operations Management, Marketing Management, and Finance Management. The course is designed to give the overview about how a business organization works.

It was a nice experience for me to share my knowledge to all students. It's been a while since the last time I taught in a class about 5 years ago (lab-work assistant). I enjoy teaching or sharing ideas ― not limited in the classroom. I hope 20 years from now I can go back to ITB and teach Informatics or Business students ^^. Here are my lecture notes, all delivered in Bahasa Indonesia. I hope it is useful for many people. Enjoy!

Module 1: Business Environment

Module 2: Business Entity, Management, Enterpreneurship

Module 3: Organization and Human Resource Management

Module 4: Motivation, Leadership, Industrial Relations

Module 5: Operations Management

Module 6: Marketing Concept and Consumer Behaviour

Module 7: Marketing Mix

Module 8: Corporate Finance

Module 9: Money Market, Stock Market, Corporate Governance

And these are my students. Currently most of them are blue-collars, who are working hard and raising capital to run their own businesses in the future. I hope they will become successful businessmen & businesswomen when they come back to their hometown ^^
