This annual forum aims to encourage the quality enhancement of internationalization management at university level, including international cooperation management on higher education, international mobility program, and other international programs as well as the management of student services and international experts.
The Director of International Office ULM, Arief Budiman explained, the annual meeting which will be held for three days will discuss the issue of international cooperation of universities in Indonesia through Internationalization programs. ULM itself besides other universities in Indonesia who are experienced in designing and implementing international cooperation programs will be the speakers in this forum. The aim is certainly to inspire other universities to emulate or modify the international cooperation program to be applied at their own university. “ULM has also implemented quite a number of international cooperation programs including those in America, Europe, Australia and other countries in Asia,” Arief said.
In addition, this meeting is also expected to emerge an embryo of cooperation between universities in Indonesia to jointly create an international cooperation program. (IO-ULM)
