The event, held at the T Corridor of the ITS Department of Statistics until Friday, June 21, represents a comprehensive implementation of the Merdeka Belajar Curriculum.

Dr. Dra Kartika Fithriasari MSi, Head of the ITS Department of Statistics, explained that the exhibition serves as a platform for conveying business education involving statistical science. Additionally, the event provides practical experience for students enrolled in the Statistical Business Innovation course through showcased projects. “With this exhibition, students can present their innovations to a broader audience,” she stated.

The Statistical Business Innovation course is a new offering introduced with the Merdeka Belajar Curriculum. In this course, students are required to create a business innovation that is currently in the form of prototypes and business plans. “Here, students exhibit their business designs through prototypes, PowerPoint presentations, posters, and videos uploaded on their respective YouTube channels,” Kartika elaborated.

Meanwhile, Prof. Dr. Muhammad Mashuri MT, Coordinator of the ITS Statistical Business Innovation Exhibition, revealed that the course focuses on two main aspects: identifying business opportunities from statistical data and integrating general business innovations with statistical features. “Statistical business has vast prospects, encompassing areas such as agriculture, stock analysis, disability services, and more,” he noted.

The three-day exhibition marks an initial step in motivating students to transform their statistical knowledge into business designs. Mashuri added that the top three innovations would receive funding of IDR 10 million per group. “This funding is provided through the support of the Merdeka Belajar Campus Competition Program,” he disclosed.

Undoubtedly, the Statistical Business Innovation Exhibition, as an educational instrument, also imparts relevant positive impacts on students. Mashuri mentioned that students have the potential to further develop their businesses beyond the designs or prototypes displayed at the exhibition. “The hope is that this opportunity will be utilized by students to become graduates who can create job opportunities,” he concluded.
