VU Business School

Executive in Residence Program

Professor Mark Farrell, Pro Vice-Chancellor of Business and Law, Victoria University

Professor Mark Farrell

The Executive in Residence Program is designed to enable graduates and students at Victoria University to be exposed to the latest thinking in business and practice from a range of top business leaders from the private and public sectors. The first guest in this series is Dr Deni Ridwan, who is a PhD graduate of Victoria University. He's an expert in the banking and finance area and he's positioned in a very high level role within the Indonesian government, and he will be sharing with us how to handle a crisis, particularly of a financial nature, and how to deal with financial shocks in Southeast Asia. Dr Ridwan is also going to participate in some classroom activities and meet some of our young students. I think what they'll gain from interacting with Dr Ridwan is a real insight into how business is done, not just as we teach in the classroom, but how it's done in real life, how meetings are conducted, how decisions are really made, and how to solve complex problems in a dynamic environment.

Coming back to the place where we learn so much is always an honour, so when I get invitation to share my knowledge, my experience with other fellows, I will say yes. I think this is opportunity to enhance the cooperation between Victoria University and Ministry of Finance of Indonesia, in terms of research, education, and other aspect of cooperation.

Professor Mark Farrell

For any business school to be successful the proof, and the real proof of success, is the quality of our alumni and the positions they secure in private enterprise and public enterprise. We want to keep in touch with our alumni to make sure they're both supported throughout their career and that we also can learn from them as they go on through their journey.
