Company Visit of UNDIRA Students to PT. ePAC FLEXIBLES INDONESIA

14 Mei 2024

Company visit is a form of experiential learning that is very valuable for students because students can see how the theoretical concepts learned in class are applied in practice in the real world. The main objective is to provide students with the opportunity to gain a first-hand understanding of how day-to-day operations in the business world or a particular industry are conducted.

Based on the importance of a company visit for students, the Directorate of Innovation and Business Development of Dian Nusantara University visited PT. ePAC FLEXIBLES INDONESIA on Friday, May 10, 2024 which is an important opportunity in order to provide practical learning to students about entrepreneurship which will be presented at BSI EXPO INTERNATIONAL.

PT. ePAC FLEXIBLES INDONESIA is a company engaged in the manufacture of flexible packaging in Indonesia. The company focuses on the production of flexible packaging used in various industries, such as food and beverages, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and others.
