|Welcome to the Department of Accounting, FEB UGM|
Message from the Chair of the Department
Welcome to the Accounting Department, Faculty of Economics and Business, Universitas Gadjah Mada. As one of the oldest and top accounting departments in Indonesia, the Department has played a significant role in providing excellent accounting education in the country. Our strong faculty members earned their graduate degrees from respected universities all over the world, have published in both respected domestic and international journals, and some with teaching experience in universities abroad. Many of our graduates have become prominent leaders in business, educational, and governmental institutions.
The Accounting Department is proud to have been accredited with the grade A by the National Accreditation Body. The Department, through the Faculty of Economics and Business, is also pursuing an accreditation from the AACSB (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), one of the most prestigious accreditation bodies for business schools. The accreditation process has strengthened our commitment towards the quality of education.
Our undergraduate program is designed to educate students to become highly skilled accountants in their fields. The Department recently established a new curriculum to improve the quality of our program and to respond to changes in the accounting environment, such as the adoption of the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) by virtually all countries including Indonesia. Our graduate (Masters and Doctoral) programs in accounting have been recognized as one of the best in the country. The programs provide excellent advanced education in accounting and have produced researchers and educators who later become respected faculty members in universities from all over the country.
I hope you will take the time to discover our Department through the website.
