Shansi welcomes new Visiting Scholar, Teuku Roli Ilhamsyah Putra (Roli), to Oberlin for the Spring 2013 semester. Roli grew up in Banda Aceh, Indonesia and received his MBA from Syiah Kuala University. He is currently a PHD student at the University of Padjadjaran and a guest lecturer on topics ranging from finance management to marketing strategies. Roli plans to spend his time at Oberlin furthering his PHD research, auditing classes, and exploring Oberlin pedagogical methods. He is most excited for travel opportunities and plans to visit Washington DC, New York City, and attend a business conference. He hopes his time in the US will provide alternative approaches for economic development, which he plans to share with the Aceh community when he returns.
