A couple of days ago i just finish my QWPTM certification organized by QWP Academy at School of Business and Management (SBM) ITB. I realized that many things have to be applied according to Qualified Wealth Planner skills and Financial Advise competences i have learned. First thing first, i have to implementing it on my own wealth planning and then i looking forward to help my friends/clients those who needs financial advisor. Here’s my QWPTM Graduation after a couple days of training the modules.
For several reasons, an important question for prospective applicants (in particular, undergrad/MBA students) looking for summer internships and fulltime jobs alike.
I was thinking that, the decision was easier for me than for most people. The cons of investment banking – the long hours, the repetitive and unengaging nature of the work, the lack of non-finance exit opportunities – mattered far more to me than a 6-figure salary. I seriously considered Sales & Trading (in fact, some friends of mine spent a summer at Financial Service company), and was tempted to continue in that line of work post-graduation.
Analitycal Hierarchy Process
Analitycal Hierarchy Process is a framework for effective decision-making on complex issues by simplifying and accelerating the decision making process to solve these problems into variable in a hierarchy, and then give a numerical value on subjective considerations to consider which variables have the highest priority. Excess Analitycal hierarchy process compared to the other models that are able to use the input of human perception, so that it can process data is qualitative or quantitative as well. In addition this process Analitycal hierarchy has the ability to solve problems of multi-objective and multi-criteria based on the ratio of one to the other.

According to Nike company lore, one of the most famous and easily recognized slogans in advertising history was coined at a 1988 meeting of Nike’s ad agency Wieden and Kennedy and a group of Nike employees. Dan Weiden, speaking admiringly of Nike’s can-do attitude, reportedly said, “You Nike guys, you just do it.” The rest, as they say, is (advertising) history.
After stumbling badly against archrival Reebok in the 1980s, Nike rose about as high and fast in the ‘90s as any company can. It took on a new religion of brand consciousness and broke advertising sound barriers with its indelible Swoosh, “Just Do It” slogan and deified sports figures. Nike managed the deftest of marketing tricks: to be both anti-establishment and mass market, to the tune of $9.2 billion dollars in sales in 1997.

A. MRP II (MANUFACTURING RESOURCE PLANNING)
Manufacturing resource planning (MRP II) is defined by APICS as a method for the effective planning of all resources of a manufacturing company. Ideally, it addresses operational planning in units, financial planning, and has a simulation capability to answer “what-if” questions and extension of closed-loop MRP (Wolsey, Laurence. (2006). Production Planning by Mixed Integer Programming. Springer. ISBN 978-0-387-29959-4).
This is not exclusively a software function, but a marriage of people skills, dedication to data base accuracy, and computer resources. It is a total company management concept for using human resources more productively. Key functions and features of MRP II are:
- Aggregate Planning
- Master Production Schedule
- Rough Cut Capacity Plannning
- Material Requirement Planning
- Capacity Requirement Planning
