FEB of UMY Conducts a Transfer Credit Program with USIM

Only a few universities provide credit transfer which can cultivate student mobility and cooperation among the universities. In a visit of Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) at Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) of Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (UMY), Vice Dean for Student and Cooperation Affairs Dr. Rizal Yaya, S.E., M.Sc., Ak., CA  stated that the cooperation between FEB of UMY and USIM emphasized a transfer credit program for the students.

“USIM is one of our strategic partners. Alhamdulillah, we have five FEB students to perform the transfer credit program at USIM, so does USIM. I think this program is good to be implemented,” he said in an interview on Friday (3/1) at Graduate School of UMY.

Dr. Rizal explained that in the transfer credit program students take a number of credits at their original university, but they have classes at the target university. Then, their grade can be transferred to their original university.

Indeed, USIM and UMY have cooperated since 2013. One of the means of reinforcing the cooperation is through having a visit with the students. USIM’s visit to UMY engaged the 25 students of Faculty of Muamalat of USIM and 25 students of FEB of UMY. “They are going to discuss Islamic perspectives on business competition in a number of groups,” he told.

Dr. Rizal expected that the cooperation can be in the form of international conferences and visiting professors. “This visit aims at exploring the discussed topic. I wish that the students of both institutions are getting closer, students of USIM could perform the credit transfer program at UMY, and this program can continually be conducted,” he hoped.
