Students of the Economic Development Study Program of Parahyangan Catholic University, made a field study trip to Bank Indonesia (BI) and the Bursa Efek Indonesia (BEI)/Indonesian Stock Exchange (IDX) on June 9, 2015. The topic of the event hosted by the Himpunan Mahasiswa Program Study Ekonomi Pembangunan (HMPSEP) /the Economic Development Study Program’s Student Association was financial monetary economic study. It is a familiar topic as one of the field of studies in the Economic Development Study Program.
Two materials that were presented by BI to the participants of the field study trip deal with central banking and inflation. BI gave HMPSEP freedom in choosing the second topic. Inflation was chosen as a topic by the HMPSEP due to its importance for students. The event that lasted for three hours was very interactive due to the activeness of the participants in asking questions.
A similar thing also occured when students conducted the field study to the IDX, the event which was showcased in interesting materials that made students of the Economic Development Study Program more active in participating in the event. The event which also lasted for three hours dealt with understanding stocks, varieties of stocks, and basic knowledge of stocks.
Field Study projects are extremely important for students to get to know the employment world. Parahyangan Catholic University through its study programs and students organizations is very supportive of events which cater for student development.
