I have completed my undergraduate degree with a major in Accounting at IT & B Campus. It has been a wonderful 3.5 years of my campus life and I have enjoyed being a part of IT&B Campus family.
I choose to study in this particular campus because of English language being the main language offered and taught. I had offers from other universities, but IT& B has a great reputation locally and even nationally. It offers study program that were adapted from the international system.
Studying at IT&B has brought an added value to my personal life. I like the hands-on approach of the courses at IT&B because it has taken my learning beyond theory. I have learnt to apply my knowledge through experiences like giving presentations, working in teams, and active involvement in our tutorials. I feel that the courses were designed to prepare undergraduates to get into the workforce. My three and a half year experience within accounting has taught me to work with different types of people in group to achieve common goals. Being able to be meet new people with different skills, personalities and experience has always been an exciting factor for me. With the countless number of projects and deadlines, I was given the opportunity to work under pressure and hone up on my time management skills.
I really enjoyed the lecturer – student feedback, the contents of the courses offered. Moreover, the qualified and friendly lecturers were always there to answer and to help me throughout the course. I also like that our lecturers use real-life examples in their teaching. The small class of tutorial classes allowed the use of better learning methods, which also implies better learning environment.
The IT infra-structure is good and the IT staffs are really helpful. Computer labs are always available for students to work on their assignments and studies. The campus has a campus-wide wifi available and it is fully air-conditioned. I feel that this provides a conducive environment for students studying within campus.
My advice to prospective students is that, when you come to IT&B Campus, do not be afraid to venture out and join clubs and societies. You will experience living amongst people from many personalities and make lifelong friends.
IT&B Accounting Study Program has provided with the necessary tools for me to face the professional life. Notions learnt in class are realist and close to what the labour market requires. Today, I am working as a Tax Supervisor and I am proud to be a part of IT&B accounting family and it was the best decision I have made so far.Susan Tjoa

In today’s competitive environment, it is not sufficient to become one of the best in our field. Intellectually education is completely important to climb the ladder of success. For education in Medan, IT&B Campus is one of the best choice to choose. IT&B has a good reputation because of its competent lecturers, facilities as well as it provides business concentration. Because of that, I chose accounting major for my study and I chose Auditing Concentration which is indeed useful for my work as internal auditor at Permata Hijau Group (PHG). I’m indeed delighted that things that I have learned from IT&B is very useful for my employment.Steven Lawrence

It was more than just a great study experience that IT&B Campus left me. IT&B Campus not only helps develop academic skills for their students, but also they helped us gain life-long practical knowledge that we could all benefit from in the future.
Classes in IT&B Campus are rather small which allows me a fair amount of one on one time with the lecturers. This means a lot to me since I enjoy asking questions and digging deeper into the subject content. And, I love the fact that IT&B educators have so much experience behind their knowledge. The support you receive from teaching staff is great; they are always there to help you achieve the best you possibly can.
People always wonder about the choices they make and where the turning point in their life is. For me, I am sure that enrolling into IT&B Campus was a critical point in my life where I grew a lot as a person. I would highly recommend studying at IT&B Campus because it is a lot more intimate than larger scale universities. The course also leads to a variety of occupations so for those who are not sure of what specific career they wish to pursue you can keep your options open.Jovi
