“Life is a learning journey”, says Yussy Santoso, alumnus to UPH's
Master of Management. "Don't stop learning, even when you've finally
graduated from university. Because it is essential for everyone to
develop and experience life", Yussy proceeds. This is in fact one of the
many keys to Yussy's success in his professional career, especially
because he has been entrusted to be Mulia Group's Human Capital Director
since the age of 38 years old.
Yussy is very grateful of the career development he experiences in
organizational development and human resources. He admits to have owed
this to his family's support, including his late father, mother, and his
beloved wife. Furthermore, Yussy also admits to have been forged by his
ex-supervisors as they have provided him with not only guidance, but
also opportunities for development.
"No matter where you are right now, respect your position by continuing
to bring development and change. Worry when your position and
compensation increases, yet the accountability and results you provide
remain the same," Yussy advises. "And what is also important is
upholding integrity and openness to new things. These two values will
help you survive and remain competitive in whatever industry you're in,"
Yussy believes there are always new things that he can learn from the
people he met and experience he faced, including the people and
experiences he's gain while at UPH. He further emphasize on the
importance of building relationships with others because it adds
valuable lessons that shaped him as much as it brings value to life.
Yussy hopes that UPH could become a leading university in improving the
quality of education in Indonesia. Apart from all that, Mr. Yussy
Santoso also hopes that he can become a teacher at UPH, and contribute
to building human resources in Indonesia, sharing experiences with young
people, so that they can prepare themselves early and face competition
in the future.
