Postgraduate program at Faculty of Economics and Business University of Brawijaya (FEB UB) has a long journey. Initially, postgraduate education is only administered by the university, but since 2006 the program has been organized by relevant faculties.
The first study program as the embryo of the postgraduate at FEB UB is the master of Management. It was officially founded in 1996 by the Decree of the Directorate General of Higher Education Number 493/DIKTI/KEP/1996 dated on 31 August 1996. Following this, Doctoral Program in Management (PDIM) was established in 2000 with the Decree of the Directorate general of Higher Education Number 50/DIKTI/KEP/2000. Not long after the event, on the 4th of July 2001, Economics study program was formed under the permit by Directorate General of Higher Education Number 2294/D/T/2001, followed by Master of Accounting Science with the permit numbered 2944/D/T/2001 dated August 31st, 2001.
In 2006, after all these study programs were managed by FEB UB, two new Doctoral programs were established. The first was Doctoral Program in Economics (PDIE), based on the permit by the Directorate General of Higher Education Number 1504/D/T/2007 on 22 June 2007, and the second was doctoral Program in Accounting with the one numbered 1575/D/T/2007 dated June 29th, 2007.
Therefore, since 2007, FEB UB has run a complete study program ranging from Bachelors to Doctoral for all field of study (Economics, Management, and Accounting). The postgraduate programs of FEB UB have experienced a significant improvement under the faculty management. Indeed, some study programs have been internationally accredited and given the credence to hold a double degree program with overseas universities. In the future this kind of internationalization will remain priority.
