Mercu Buana University


Greetings from the Rector



On a good occasion and God willing, full of blessings, I invite all academics to offer praise and gratitude to the presence of God Almighty, Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala, because of the blessings of His grace and grace we are guided in kindness and always healthy goodbye.

Since the end of 2016, Mercu Buana University has risen to the rank of accredited A. It is certainly a sense of pride and gratitude for the assessment of the National Accreditation Board of Higher Education (BAN-PT) which accredited the A accreditation.

The 'A' accreditation of the institution that is carried out is not the culmination of Mercu Buana University. This success becomes a challenge which again requires courage and hard work. Because accreditation A is a quality symbol that must be maintained by the institution forever.

Not only that. Institutional accreditation "A" that has been achieved deserves to be a leap energy in a better direction. By aiming at higher accreditation, namely international accreditation.

This is important for the University of Mercu Buana. Because as an institution the Higher Education has responsibility on its shoulders, according to the mandate of Law No.12 of 2012 concerning Higher Education. Where universities have an obligation to participate in the progress of Indonesian civilization.

Amanah gives meaning, the University of Mercu Buana must continue to encourage its quality. Developing scientific skills, while enhancing innovation products, all of which are measures of university performance.

Later all the achievements that have been obtained must have a contribution and usefulness for science, human civilization, especially for the Indonesian people. So for that the fulfillment of international accreditation is a step to achieve the mandate upheld.

Mercu Buana University believes that with the support of the community, industry, academics and government, in the future these ideals can be realized. May Allah SWT, God Almighty bless you. Amen


Rector of Mercu Buana University

Prof. Dr. Ngadino Surip, MS

Bambang Widiyatmoko in the midst of signing agreement between LIPI - UMB at LIPI office, Jakarta, Wednesday (7/6/17).

According to him, LIPI and UMB collaboration is very appropriate and will be effective. Because through these two institutions the study of research in physical science will be exhaustively. Especially in research which is able to improve the purpose of physical science in life every day. At least, this cooperation is based on three important things. First collaboration in the management of research resources, second cooperation of scientific activities and the third experts exchange."All those cllaboration will focus on the physics sector. So the work of physics research from both parties will be improved, "he said.

The Dean of Faculty of Engineering UMB, Danto Sukmajati, Ph.D added UMB and LIPI collaboration is a step to bring the knowledge needs closer to the society, then the research will be directly beneficial to industry. It will also improve the research skills for both institutions since the research culture invites every researchist to have a concern to the existing problem. And it will arise through this research cooperation. (Author: Fauzi Nur Iman/Editor: Riko Noviantoro/University Secretariat and Public Relations/

It has been the destiny of this country to tightly adhere to the roles of religious leaders and their followers as it was evident with the Indonesian Muslims who consistently fight for the fate of the nation.

“It is something we cannot deny as the history tells us just that. It has been a fact that Islamic clerks, the Santris (students of Islamic boarding schools) and Indonesian Muslims in general had fought for Indonesia’s independence, and so did other religious entities,” said Peoples’ Consultative Assembly (MPR) vice chairman Dr. Hidayat Nur Wahid as he delivered his religious briefing (tausiah Ramadhan) at UMB’s Manarul Amal mosque in Jakarta on Tuesday (6/6/17).

He further depicted the nation’s religious diversity as enforcer of the country’s struggle for independence that finally became a reality in August 17, 1945. It is far a distance with the Middle East countries where conflicts continue to drag on. Religious diversity, he said, is a blessing that we need to maintain and revive as without it Indonesia can possibly make it up to this very moment.

Pancasila as Indonesia’s state ideology and  the nation’s basic  philosophy is dynamic in nature and full of ideas---to say it is not a static frame of thinking as it was based on Indonesia’s genuine values and characters.

“We need to keep on exercising all those values   as they  live overtime,”  said People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR)  chairman Dr. Zulkifli Hasan when addressing the seminar on Pancasila entitling “ National Leadership in the Perspective of Pancasila” at Mercu Buana University (UMB) in  Jakarta on Friday ( 9/6/2017).

Reinventing the values of Pancasila has to be a shared responsibility between all elements, he said. As such, universities have to live up abundant values of Pancasila. This way Pancasila can be a living guidance for day to day living practice. In turn, our  comprehension about Pancasila will also improve the result of which will manifest in the implementation of Pancasila which no other than the manifestation of Indonesia’s basic values and genuine characters.

Rector of UMB Dr. Arrisetyanto Nugroho believes such values can be dragged out from seminars and discussions as they  can serve to enhance and deepen our understanding about Pancasila. Such true  comprehension can be further  implanted in government’s programs and policies so that all the programs and policies were based on the values of Pancasila. **
