Nick Klomp’s Indonesian ambition

“CQU has the support of the Indonesian Government to set up a campus and start doing business,” VC Nick Klomp tells staff

Professor Klomp is now in Indonesia which he says is “a great opportunity, not least because there are 270m people there.”

CQU already has a JV with local private provider Bakrie U, teaching business masters to students who transfer to Australia after four semesters (at least that was the idea when the deal was done). But now it seems CQU wants to set up itself, which is possible under the Aus-Indonesia free trade agreement.

If so, CQU will follow Monash U, which became “the first-ever international foreign-owned university” in Indonesia last December and intends to start to teaching PG programmes in October (CMM April 6)
