Vocational College (SV) UGM keeps strengthening international cooperation with higher education institutions in various countries. One of the most prospectus countries to become partners is the Republic of Korea. The strategic initiatives on academic and human resources development got positive response from an institution in the Republic of Korea. It was proven by a visit from Professor Eun Sup Lee, Ph.D., as the President of International Trade and Law Institute Pusan National University (PNU). Through that visit, Prof. Lee wanted to meet the officials of SV UGM to discuss further about establishing cooperation on certified training program on International Trade and Law and other collaborative activities.
Considering the mutual benefits, SV UGM gave positive response to the cooperation schemes. Therefore, both institutions agreed to sign the MoU documents afterwards. Each MoU document was signed by President of International Trade and Law Pusan National University Korea, Profesor Eun Sup Lee, Ph.D., and Dean of Vocational College UGM, Wikan Sakarinto, S.T.,M.Sc., Ph.D., on Wednesday (22/2) at SV UGM.
Andri Handayani, S.S.,M.A., as Manager of Office of International Affairs SV UGM explained that instead of establishing cooperation on certified training program, SV UGM and PNU Korea would soon establish dual/double degree program for students of SV UGM.
Andri also added that the certified training program is designed for students and alumni of SV UGM. In the future, after accomplishing the certified training program, graduates could possibly work at outstanding companies in the Republic of Korea. (ty)
