Regarding ABEST21 accreditation process, MM FEB UNIB has begun the Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) stage. “QIP has been accepted after the Peer Review Committee (PRC) process. Next, MM FEB UNIB must prepare a Self Check / Evaluation Report (SCR) document, “he said.
Dr. Slamet added that based on the results of the meeting with ABEST21 party, they considered that QIP that had been prepared by MM FEB UNIB was very good. This then must be more measurable in the SCR. “SCR contains 26 standards outlined in 124 criteria,” he explained.
Since these various processes and stages of international accreditation were considered quite good by ABEST21, FEB UNIB delegation led by Prof. Lizar Alfansi is very optimistic about being able to reach the target by 2020 which MM FEB UNIB will be fully internationally accredited.[Hms1/eve]
