Welcome to the Faculty of Administrative Sciences, University of Indonesia (FIA UI), for GREAT students. Thank you for coming to our beloved campus, FIA UI. FIA UI was originally a department at the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, University of Indonesia (FISIP UI). In March 2015, FIA UI was officially established with three departments: the Department of Business Administration, the Department of State Administration and the Department of Fiscal Administration. FIA UI opens regular and parallel undergraduate and postgraduate (Masters and Doctoral) programs.

“Friends who are present here, hopefully, can adapt to the environment at FIA UI both in terms of housing, social, and others. We at FIA UI are ready to help friends here to adjust and, of course, to take part in learning at FIA UI,” said Dr. Fibria.

This was conveyed by Dr. Fibria Indriati Dwi Liestiawati, S.Sos., M.Sc., as Deputy Dean for Education, Research and Student Affairs at the Welcoming Session for UI GREAT Students on Tuesday, October 25 2022 in the Main Meeting Room, Building M FIA UI.

“FIA UI has the vision to become a centre of academic excellence in administration studies and policies and strategic governance based on the Tri Dharma Mission in Southeast Asia. To achieve this vision, various scientific activities at FIA UI are coordinated by 8 Research Clusters, each of which is led by a Professor in their field. The existence of the Research Cluster allows students and lecturers to collaborate in producing various types of research that can help overcome various national problems and respond to the demands of the times,” said Dr. Reza Fathurrahman, Secretary of the Postgraduate Program & Head of the International Office.

Furthermore, Dr. Reza explained that for the postgraduate program, namely the FIA UI master program, each student would be provided with remote lecture support services such as EMAS (Learning Management System); SIAKNG; SIPEDA; UI Remote Libraries; Turnitin (Plagiarism check); and free software licenses such as Microsoft Office 365; IBM SPSS Statistics, and others.

“The FIA UI master program has obtained Superior BAN-PT accreditation and FIA UI has won the distinction of being one of the 100 best campuses in the world in the Field of Administrative Science based on the latest publication QS Ranking 2022 by Broad Subject Social Policy and Administration. There are two degrees provided by FIA UI, namely Master in Public Policy and Management and Master in E-Government,” said Dr. Reza.

In this event, students from Zimbabwe, namely Tinashe and Lackson and Mr. Lin from Myanmar expressed their input and opinions regarding studying at FIA UI, starting from where to live, the internet network, and other things. Hopefully, FIA UI friends will be able to follow the learning process fully.
