University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) received a visit from University Malaysia Kelantan (UMK), Friday (29/3). Received directly by UMM Rector Dr. Fauzan, M.Pd., UMK brought seven functional lines of universities. Among them is the Vice Rector for Academic and International Relations, Prof. Dr. Mohd Rafi Bin Yacob.
Their arrival at the White Campus, UMK wanted to study the management of universities and business charities owned by UMM. Considering that UMM had been established for 55 years and had become an independent campus that continues to develop various business charities. The aim was to minimize the operational costs that were charged to students.
"We want to learn about UMM's efforts in developing universities that have been established for 55 years," said Rafi. This time, he continued, UMK was still 12 years old and wanted to study with other successful universities. According to him, establishing good relations was necessary.
The business charities were UMM Hospital, Car Repair Shop andRinjani motorbike, gas station, UMM Farm, UMM Dome, Surya Medika Sumbawa Clinic, Sengkaling UMM Park, Kapal Garden Hotel and Race Hotel. The Kapal Hotel was one of UMM's newest charity businesses for the needs of tourists.
Besides that, UMK also wanted to cooperate in the field of entrepreneurship. Moreover, UMM had built an entrepreneurial climate among students. "We want to bring UMM students and UMK in an entrepreneurial discussion forum. In addition, we will present UMM lecturers to teach at UMK, "Rafi said.
Fauzan planned the collaboration in the form of a Social Learning Express (LEx) innovation project that had been carried out previously with Singapore Polytechnic. "This program will focus on solving problems that are explored through field observations and oriented towards creating entrepreneurial products," he said.
In addition, Fauzan wanted to follow up the collaboration with UMK by presenting Indonesia Corner at UMK and vice versa. "The aim is to strengthen inter-cultural relations and function, not only for universities but also for the community," he concluded. (Win)
