PPM School of Management (PPM SoM) will reach the age of 50 years or half a century in 2017. PPM SoM is the oldest management school in Indonesia.
PPM SoM is still very young when it is compared with Wharton Business School in America that was established in 1881 or Birmingham Business School in UK that was built in 1902. Moreover, when we compare PPM SoM with ESCP (Ecole Supérieure de Commerce) Europe, the world's first business school, founded in 1819 in France, we are still a concept. Thanks to a loving God, hard work makes PPM SoM still exist. As this letter is typed, “A” accreditation certificate for the Master of Management was coming back for the fourth time (1999-2003, 2004-2008, 2009-2013, 2014-2018). In PPM SoM, Excellence (Quality) is the remarkable important thing after Nobleness (Ethics).
Standing on the idea of ecclesiastics and scientists, with funding support from international donor organizations and religious organizations, the noble values flows away protecting every part of the embedded root, flows upward affirming branches, strengthen the twigs and develop leaves of PPM SoM. Simplicity is hard to argue when insistences come across to increase the number of students, expand the school to various locations, build modern buildings, or build elegancy around every corner.
In this school, the concept of "Enough" is taught - not too much and not too little. As a formal educational institution, we are proud to be the first and until now is the only management school in Indonesia who managed to publish a sustainable development report (sustainability report) – a report that shows the organization's performance in three aspects: economic, environmental, and social.
PPM SoM with approximately 700 students, is a small school in the center region of Jakarta. PPM is often called as "Pojok Pengkolan Menteng" (or corner of Menteng) because our location is in the corner of Menteng Raya street, Jakarta. In this place, curriculum and learning method is carefully designed based on experienced management research, consulting management, executive assessment and executive coaching. Through these activities, we fund our own operational activities, almost without financial support from other parties, individuals and companies. Even we are setting aside some funds to provide access to students for a great education.
