When Yudhoyono's son enrolls at Harvard

Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono, son of president SBY, has recently enrolled in a course to earn a master's degree in public administration at top notch school Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government. 
According to his wife, Annisa Pohan, Agus is expected to accomplish the program within one year. Agus followed the step of Yenny Zannuba Wahid, daughter of former president Abdurrahman Wahid, who graduated from the Kennedy School few years back.
Born in August 10, 1978, Agus Yudhoyono graduated from Military Academy in 2000 and then master program at the Institute of Defense and Strategic Studies in Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. He is now a captain at Army's Strategic Reserves Command (Kostrad).
It is not clear which program at KSG that Agus Yudhoyono enrolled into. But Mason Program at the school could cost a minimum of US$82,380 (depending on living expenses). If you take your family with one children, the cost could be sky-high. Mandatory University Health Services Fees for 2009-2010 program, according to KSG's website, is US$5660 for two dependents, while maintenance cost could be US$17,600. So, a family of three (like Agus) needs at least US$100,000 a year, for basics.
As for Annisa, she was born in Boston in November 20, 1981. She is a model.
Money, which usually triggers speculation and rumors, is one thing. But to get there, you need more than that---access. As for the outcome, well, who knows that you can be the next president of Indonesia. Felipe Calderon, alumni of the KSG, is currently president of Mexico. Calderon's friend and classmate at KSG, Gita I Wirjawan, is currently commissioner at state-owned oil and gas giant Pertamina, and reportedly one of few executives close to SBY.

Corruption is not a disease, sometimes it's a cure. Just when, where and how. Nepotism is the family of corruption.
Harvard is the school of all this recruits.
