FEB Internationalization Programs in 2012

[Unpad.ac.id, 19/12/2012] International partnership programs, such as summer program, academic exchange, and double degree programs, have become the most prominent programs that the Faculty of Business and Economics (FEB) has been running in 2012.

“Perhaps our faculty is the pioneer of such international programs that relate to teaching and research,” said Dr. Budiono, the vice dean of academic affairs FEB. The programs are run in almost all degrees, with main focus on undergraduate double degree programs. As for masters degree, double degree program is to be initiated with international universities from Japan, France, Germany, and Korea.

This year, FEB has successfully completed summer program in which students from Indonesia, Australia, and Germany are taking part. As for research, FEB establishes international cooperation programs through Research, Community Service, and Economic Studies Laboratory (LP3E)/

The faculty also admitted five German students to study for one semester in the campus. In addition, three students from Timor Leste and Papua New Guinea are now pursuing their masters degree in the graduate program FEB.

FEB is made even prouder as several teaching staff,  Dr. Arief Anshory Yusuf, Erie Febrian, and Aldrin Herwany, have just recently been awarded Best Paper Award.  Some other staff published their research in several international journals and two books.

As of today, FEB offers 14 study programs in both undergraduate and graduate programs, almost all of which are accredited A from the National Accreditation Body for Higher Education (BAN-PT). In the mean, four study programs are still waiting for the accreditation results. “The team from BAN PT has just visited four programs, namely Accounting, Applied Economics, International Business, and Management,” said Dr. Budiono.

Dr. Budiono, however, is fully aware that not all programs are completed. There should be assessment and clearer targets in the following years. “Hopefully we will be able to perform better in the future,” he concluded.
