President University, Indonesia, to develop global ready digital talents with CLaaS®

Under the partnership Lithan at President University’s campus, PresUniv will deliver applied master's program in Digital Business.

Online PR News – 12-February-2021 – Singapore – Lithan Academy, an accredited digital skills accelerator from Singapore, has signed an alliance agreement with President University (PresUniv) to jointly offer its applied degree CLaaS® to collaboratively develop global-ready digital talents for achieving growth in the digital economy.

The unprecedented pace of digital transformation has resulted in critical skills gaps that businesses are struggling to fill. Such skills mismatches and skills churn have increased the need for rapid and continuous digital upskilling throughout a person’s career.

Lithan’s innovation to support these emerging learning needs is CLaaS® - Competency Learning as a Service. It adopts competency-based curriculums with work-based applied learning pedagogy to deliver knowledge acquisition in the classroom and on-the-job skills mastery at the workplace using real-world projects. CLaaS® is delivered in blended learning mode with experts mentoring from industry practitioners.

Under the partnership Lithan at President University’s campus, PresUniv will deliver applied master's program in Digital Business.

Lithan’s Founder and CEO, Leslie Loh said, “The goal with CLaaS is to develop a pool of talent that’s relevant for the new economy, help adult learners transition into a high growth career, and help enterprises in their digital transformation. Our learners acquire future-ready skills, and we ensure that they perfect these skills with the applied learning journey. We welcome President University onboard the Pan-Asia CLaaS Alliance and ensure that, powered by CLaaS®, it will act as a growth driver for the local economy, providing high-value employment route for professionals, and a pool of global-ready talent for enterprises.”

Sandy Darmowinoto, Vice Rector for Resources of President University hopes that the collaboration between President University and Lithan, both in learning products and in teaching staff, can improve the quality of learning at President University. She said, "For example, we have an MBA program with a Digital Business concentration. By inviting business practitioners and lecturers from Singapore, I hope students can be more updated and ready to respond to changes that occur in the business world.”
