Student Stories

Febe Amelia Haryanto

  • May 8, 2018

Febe is an international student from Indonesia who is currently studying the UNSW Master of Commerce specialisation in Global Sustainability and Social Enterprise taught by the Centre for Social Impact.

“The course has helped me apply systemic thinking in approaching and addressing complex problems. It prevents me from taking a ‘silver bullet’ solution that seems to be effective but only addresses the symptoms, not the root cause of the problem. It also taught me how to map the stakeholders I need to collaborate with to ensure delivery of maximum impact.”

Febe was also part of the team from UNSW Sydney that won the Cornell University’s International Global Health Case Study Competition this year. “Winning this competition was wonderful. It really taught me that cross-sectoral collaboration and systemic thinking are very important in addressing large societal problems.”
