On Friday, 25th of March, an exclusive one-session MonsoonSIM class was held through the collaboration between MonsoonSIM and Universitas Eka Prasetya Medan. Arranged as a part of Universitas Eka Prasetya Medan’s community service activity, this special MonsoonSIM class was attended by over 80 students from Sisingamangaraja College Tanjung Balai.
A special thank you for the commendable efforts from Mr. Toha, the economic teacher representing Sisingamangaraja College Tanjung Balai, and Mr. Susanto, the economic lecturer representing Universitas Eka Prasetya Medan, who have organized and made this event possible with MonsoonSIM. The active participation and palpable excitement of the students have indeed created an encouraging environment conducive for learning and practicing and succeeding.
Sisingamangaraja College Tanjung Balai is a formally-recognized educational institution since its founding in 1911. With an admirable historical track record of providing basic and advanced education for the promising youth of Tanjung Balai city, Sisingamangaraja College has guided countless students to become exemplary citizens with purpose, heart and goals.
Since 2011, Sisingamangaraja College Tanjung Balai also has a new paradigm in its mission of improving the quality of existing resources to bring education into a higher level. Offering modern and sufficient facilities for their students, ranging from playgroup all the way to high school, Sisingamangaraja College Tanjung Balai intends to produce generations of educated, skilled and competitive graduates that are ready and equipped to face the dynamic challenges of the workforce.
As for Universitas Eka Prasetya Medan, this educational institution was originally under the Worldstar Education Foundation, but was managed by the legal entity of the Graha Eka Education Center Foundation since September 15, 2014. Built with a purpose of producing graduates that are ready to tackle the needs of the community, Universitas Eka Prasetya Medan offers an effective, efficient and conducive educational process in accordance with the economic system and national education standards.
With facilities and infrastructure backed by advancements in science and technology, the university offers study programs in the field of management and accounting. Universitas Eka Prasetya Medan aims to become a leading university in the field of entrepreneurship, developing such skills, and foster creative and innovative business management capabilities among their students.
This event organized by MonsoonSIM, Universitas Eka Prasetya Medan and Sisingamangaraja College Tanjung Balai is a perfect example of how education can be enriched and students be supported through meaningful collaborations between universities and EdTech providers.
With the rapid development of information and communication technology, the world of business constantly shifts and changes along with it too. To prepare students for the real-world work environment and what’s expected of them in the job market, the field of higher education must advance and evolve as well.
Unsurprisingly, this increases the need for radical and disruptive innovations, specifically EdTech tools that are poised to play a greater role in supporting higher education. It is through these EdTech innovations, such as MonsoonSIM’s own business simulation and gamification education platform, that transforms the way knowledge and concepts are taught and applied at universities and educational institutions, as well as produce student graduates who have the capabilities, drive and competencies to face the challenges of a dynamic industry.
Through events such as these MonsoonSIM classes, this does not only provide an experiential, immersive and integrative learning method that teaches business concepts of different departments interconnectedly, but also familiarizes students with real-life business processes. This is certainly relevant for students to adapt to the expectations and responsibilities that future employers look for.
MonsoonSIM allows for a detailed and interrelated view of the way businesses and their various departments operate in real life by presenting business concepts in the form of a comprehensive business simulation with thirteen interconnected business departments. Seeing the learning process of the students from events such as these motivates MonsoonSIM to continue supporting students in a way where there’s more to learn, easier to learn!
