PSU is honored to co-host the QS Higher Ed Summit: Asia Pacific 2022 and to have the privilege to thrive throughout the conference with our respected host, the Universitas Indonesia (UI), and with the outstanding QS team via both the virtual platform and onsite in Jakarta, Indonesia.
This year’s conference illustrates the significant role of the higher education institutions in the post-pandemic era by tackling the theme “The Next Big Thing: Addressing new opportunities and existing challenges in APAC higher ed”.
As higher education institutions, I believe that all of us have successfully adapted ourselves to the current educational excellence standards. By investing in hybrid teaching and creating digital tools and innovation, classes become more effective and highly enriched, and learning has been easier shared with the larger higher educational community. However, the big question is: what direction should the operations in the educational sector take?
We are certain that QS Higher Ed Summit: Asia Pacific 2022 will bring together proficient university leaders and frontline experts from the private sector in the region and beyond to share ideas and knowledge on the future of education in Asia Pacific. Therefore, I am convinced that this significant conference will successfully address this issue and conclude with the new ways forward that can benefit all in sustainable ways.
Furthermore, the conference will also provide networking opportunities as a gateway for participants to meet decision-makers and experts, as well as to promote their institutions and initiate extensive collaborations with academic and industrial partners.
On behalf of PSU, we are most delighted to welcome you to such an important conference of the year 2022. Let’s create the new movement together and wish everyone of you will gain meaningful moments from QS Higher Ed Summit: Asia Pacific 2022.
