about me

My name is Sigit Wibowo. I joined the Department of Management at the Faculty of Economics and Business, Universitas Indonesia in January 2004 as a lecturer assistant/tutor in undergraduate programme. In January 2007, I was promoted to a full-time lecturer. My research interests lie in household finance, financial institutions and systems. You can find the list of my publications here. As of January 2015, I am appointed as the vice editor of Indonesian Capital Market Review. Currently, I am also in charge as the Head of Academic Partnership under Directora of Collaborative Affairs, overseeing any academic cooperations in Universitas Indonesia.

I obtained my Ph.D. from Durham University Business School, United Kingdom in 2015. I worked under the supervision of Prof. Parantap Basu and Prof. Richard Harris. My stay in Durham was supported by the Ministry of National Education (Higher Education) scholarship scheme.

Previously, I studied my master in risk management at the Magister Manajemen (equivalent to MBA) at Universitas Indonesia and received the degree in 2006. My master thesis was about multivariate GARCH model and value-at-risk measurement, supervised by the late Dr. Bambang Hermanto. My master degree was funded by Citibank Indonesia, NA. I got my undergraduate degree in economics (major: finance) from the same university in 2002. In addition, I hold Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) from Financial Planning Standards Board – Indonesia since November 2008.

Prior to working in the academia, I worked at PPSDMS-Nurul Fikri Foundation, a non-government institution in year 2003 and spent some months in Penerbit Salemba, a local publishing company in 2004. I also spent a short period in a consulting company named BEDA & Company in 2010.

During my leisure time, I like to watch football matches and read history books. I also joined Durham Gamelan Society, Javanese music ensemble in Durham.
