The rector noted the signing of the agreements was part of activities conducted during a series of working visits by the leadership of the Association of Indonesian Private Universities (Aptisi) from Sept 20 to 23 in Malaysia and Singapore.
He said the universitys cooperation agreement with UKM included some important points, such as allowing UMM faculty to complete their doctoral studies at UKM, initiating student exchanges, and ensuring the exchange of information on research progress, as well as promoting the development of human capital.
"The cooperation agreement with the University of Kuala Lumpur also includes the exchange of students, in addition to the development of a vocational program. The cooperation agreement is valid for three years," he stated.
He noted that UMM would pursue the points listed in the agreements to ensure they did not remain in the discussion stage.
"The exchange of human resources needs to be done so that UMM can become more developed and introduce more open concepts," he said.
He suggested UMM would realize this agreement in the future, especially for the benefit of faculty who are ready to act on it.
According to him, of the six faculties managed by UMM, all have equal access to the benefits offered by the cooperation agreements with the two Malaysian universities.
