UB Campus with the Most Participants Passing MSIB VI This Year

Brawijaya University (UB) is the campus with the most participants passing Certified Independent Study and Internship (MSIB) VI or around 2,148 (72 study programs) this year. MSIB is an Independent Campus Learning (MBKM) program which provides students with the opportunity to gain practical experience in various companies and agencies.

Intan Sartika Eris Maghfiroh, S.E., M.B.A.., as the MSIB Higher Education Coordinator, said that UB students who passed were spread across 167 partners, such as GOTO, Traveloka, BUMN, and Multi-National Private Companies.

“We recorded that there were more than 6,678 students who registered at undergraduate and vocational levels who received recommendations. “Alhamdulillah, many were accepted,” said Intan.

Intan added, MSIB VI had quite significant changes in the registration stages which had been carried out digitally, especially in Recommendation Letter (SR) and Absolute Responsibility Statement (SPTJM) documents.

“This change caused us quite a bit of confusion at the start, but with intensive coordination, especially with DALA and ISS-MBKM, we delegated the task to each person in charge of the study program to verify incoming student data every day. Recommendation is then given by the Higher Education Leadership through DALA,” she said.

Intan shared some experiences in faculties, one of which was the Faculty of Computer Science. She said that one way to be able to send the most students among other faculties is to involve academic advisor lecturers to provide consultations to students regarding companies and positions they should apply for.

Lecturers also play an important role, in this case by providing consultations to students regarding companies and positions they should apply for according to their interests and majors. Therefore, students can find it easier to find partners for internships.

“One way we can send many students is by involving academic advisor lecturers to provide input to students,” she said.

Previously, UB was also the university with the most MSIB participants in batch IV.

“The large number of applicants who take part in the MSIB program is the result of various efforts made by UB in socializing and encouraging students to take part in the MBKM program,” said Intan. (FB/OKY/UB PR/ Trans. Iir)
