1,250 USU Students Enthusiastic Attends The #BCABerbagiIlmu Public Lecture Themed "Aiming for Success Amid Uncertainty"

Medan, May 9, 2023 - The #BCABerbagiIlmu program continued its activities in several cities, including Medan, North Sumatra. Universitas Sumatera Utara (USU) students attended public lectures delivered by members of the board of directors of PT Bank Central Asia Tbk (BCA). The public lecture themed "Aiming for Success Amid Uncertainty," received a positive response, as seen from the attendance of 1,250 enthusiastic students.

With the spirit of #GenerasiPastiBisa, #BCABerbagiIlmu reflects BCA's commitment to supporting Indonesia in pursuing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Not only that, this program also aims to promote education and financial literacy among the younger generation, who are currently at the peak of the Demographic Bonus period in 2030.

The BCA Director, Haryanto T. Budiman, stated, "This uncertainty is not only during Covid-19, but also happening now. This uncertainty can lead to a crisis, but a crisis can also be an opportunity. We must be able to perceive the opportunities that arise when we face a crisis."

The public lecture held in the USU Auditorium carries the topic "How To Succeed In The Era of Disruptions and Uncertainties". As we all know, the Covid-19 pandemic, followed by global economic shocks, geopolitical conflicts, and technological disruptions are major challenges that have occurred in recent years. However, with the right approach, even difficult conditions like these can produce winners.

"During the pandemic, many debtors applied for restructuring due to the tough economic situation. BCA is a bank that has a slogan of always being on the side of its customers, whether in good or bad times. During the crisis, we provided assistance to several customers in the form of relaxation. This resulted in customers remembering BCA very well, even recommending it to their children and colleagues not to switch to other banks. This is an instance of a crisis that turned into an opportunity. The crisis also provided an opportunity for us to adopt a hybrid model. In the past, we all had to meet in person, but lately, the hybrid model is more efficient," said Haryanto.

The #BCABerbagiIlmu program started coinciding with National Education Day on May 2nd at the University of Indonesia (UI). In addition to UI and USU, this series of public lectures will also be held at several other campuses such as Airlangga University, Hasanuddin University, and Gadjah Mada University with BCA's board of directors as speakers discussing various topics ranging from leadership, financial literacy, to digitalization.

In addition, #BCABerbagiIlmu also includes the Student Banking Tour program that will invite several students to learn about banking materials while directly visiting BCA branch offices. There is also an event called “I'm Capable” that encourages inclusive and disability-friendly education, specifically regarding financial literacy and training for people with disabilities.

EVP Corporate Communication & Social Responsibility BCA, Hera F. Haryn added, "#BCABerbagiIlmu was specifically designed to support inclusive education for the advancement of outstanding human resources in Indonesia. BCA believes that the best investment for the younger generation is education and self-capacity development. Therefore, BCA is committed to continuously supporting them so that they become the #GenerasiPastiBisa (The Generation that Can Do)."
