In order to undergo the transformation process towards “The Best Bank in ASEAN”, in 2020, in terms of market capitalization, profit, and other non-financial perspectives, Bank Mandiri needs to recruit and develop employees who are reliable and competent in facing business and technology challenges in the future.

The results of the digital banking survey conducted by Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC) Indonesia on banks in Indonesia show that as many as 66% of respondents, who are senior executive bankers in banking institutions in Indonesia, have developed digital strategies as part of the company’s strategy. This is done because digital disruption has entered the banking world, so a number of banks in Indonesia consider digitalization as part of the company’s strategy (Fauzia, 2018).

Reflecting on this, Bank Mandiri appointed BINUS CREATES to prepare its to face the challenges of the digital world business through the Bank Mandiri IT Level 1 program in July 2018 with a theme “Developing Balanced & Agile Mandirian in a Digital World”. The curriculum, assessment, and participant profiling is specially designed for Bank Mandiri by aligning Bank Mandiri core values, IT technical competencies, leadership and other soft skill needed in Digital Era with BINUS CREATES framework, project based learning, and Lumina approach.
