One of the lecturers of USIM dr. Nurhidayah Laila stated that the visit was one of the programs of USIM to introduce culture of another country to its students. “Therefore, students update the development which occurs and learn something new, particularly issues of conventional and Islamic accounting in Indonesia. Besides, USIM parties also visited Thailand, Vietnam, Australia, U.S. and several industries in other countries,” she mentioned.

Nurhidayah told that her parties came to UMY since both universities study conventional and Islamic accounting and have been cooperating such as conducting a student exchange program. She also expected that the visit can enable several departments of both universities to have the exchange program.
