The teaching and learning atmosphere at Texas Tech University which is not much different from Indonesia made Andre feel at home and used to it. Because, Andre has been educated with the system and has the same learning environment when studying at the Sampoerna Academy which applies international standard education. Outside of lecture hours, Andre took part-time work in the Office of Vice President for Research for 15 hours per week and always took the time to study together with his friends.
Andre admired the figure of a charismatic leader like President Soekarno. For Andre, the ideal leader is those who dare to accept failure. Failure was a turning point for Andre to continue to work and study harder to get satisfying results.
In 2013, Andre got the opportunity to do an internship at PT. HM Sampoerna Tbk as an assistant supervisor in charge of making modules and conducting training for new employees. In 2014, Andre had the opportunity to intern at the Samko Timber company, and was responsible for the Business Development section under the Board of Directors. According to him, the experience of the internship he obtained was very useful and related to his industrial engineering study field. Andre can apply and explore more about everything he gained while studying in the United States
