Greetings From Dean
School of Creative Industries is representing commitment of Telkom University in developing creative Economy in Indonesia, Especially in Creative Industries. We focus on creative industries disciplines in our school because we know exactly that creative economy is the new age of economy in the world. In Indonesia also creative economy has significant contribution to our gross domestic product (GDP). Based on contribution to the national GDP, creative economy has position number 7 as the important economic sector in Indonesia.
We believe that creative economy will contribute to our national economic development to be higher in the future, because Indonesia now has 3 leveraging factors to realize that condition. The first Indonesia has big younger age group, and creative economy is identical with young generation population. Secondly, Indonesia has many cultural heritages, and the root of creative economy is culture. Finally, political factor, our government has decided that creative economy is one of priority sector in our national economic strategic plan.
This condition has stimulated us to stake our vision to become the excellence faculty in creative industries education and to become the center for developing creativepreneurs in Indonesia. For achieving our vision we have formulated strategic direction and main programs for next 5 years (2014-2018). Our strategy focuses on 3 strategic objectives.
