Through this office visit, students gained much of benefits such a company profile, learning how to get started to open a stock account in PT. IDX, the profits invested in stock, and know which companies that we can invested in stock. There should be a gallery tour in schedule of office visit, unfortunately because the gallery is on renovation so gallery tour was cancelled.
We were a little disappointed because we went back to BINUS University too early due to some unavoidable things. But the disappointment was gone after we heard the news about PT. IDX bridge tower 1 and 2 were collapsed a few minutes after we went back to campus. The incident caused many people injured, we are grateful for leaving PT. IDX on time.
