Monday, August 9, 2021, the Entrepreneur Teaching Center (ETC) 2020 program has officially closed. The program, which was initiated by Charoen Pokphand and FPP Undip, has succeeded in teaching 30 FPP students to get directly involved in the world of work. Students for 9 weeks have learned how good business is run in various Charoen Pokphand subsidiaries. The first is the Prima Freshmart Store which sells frozen processed food products and chicken, the second is in the Poultry Division which is a broiller partnership business. Finally, at PT Bisi International, which is a corn, rice and horticultural nursery company.

The participants of the ETC program admitted that they got a lot of new experiences and knowledge when they joined the program. The main thing is things that are not found in lectures. Including how to implement theory in the real world. Achmad Fahrul, one of the participants admitted that it turns out that what is in the book can be very different from what happens in the world of work. Especially the problem of entrepreneurship in the field of animal husbandry and agriculture. The rest, the participants stated that this program must be sustainable and can be continued in the following years because it can encourage students to collaborate, be open to change, and be able to view a problem in the agriculture and animal husbandry sector from various perspectives.

Not only the participants, the head of the study program at FPP Undip also welcomed the existence of the ETC program. According to them, with the ETC, students can practice directly what is in class and learn something they cannot find in class. The ETC program is considered very feasible to continue because it has been adapted to the syllabus of the faculty and the business world. So, what students get is under what is expected in the world of work but can also follow learning in class.

Hearing these positive comments, Chaoren Pokphand’s side also felt happy. Considering that ETC was born because of Charoen Pokphand’s efforts to increase student interest in entrepreneurship. It is time for the industrial and academic world to produce prospective graduates who can create the business world in the future. With ETC theory and practice can go hand in hand. It is hoped that in the future it can become student capital for entrepreneurship, especially in the field of animal husbandry and agriculture.
