We are proud of the fact that some of our graduates who are sitting today with us have already landed their dream jobs before the graduation day. I am positive that some of you are working at companies you have dreamed of, where you can further your career,” stated Sampoerna University Rector Drs. Wahdi Salasi April Yudhi, M. Dev Admin, Ph. D. in front of the 67 graduates and around 250 guests.

Representing Putera Sampoerna Foundation (PSF), Dr. Marshall E.

Stay curious and embrace lifelong learning in all its forms, constantly striving for greatness in everything you do.”
