Rector of Unud Prof. Dr. Ir. I Nyoman Gde Antara, M.Eng.,IPU in his speech conveyed his welcome and appreciation to the assessor team and hopefully at another time can attend directly to provide input, especially to Study Programs and also universities in general. University leaders are very committed to Study Programs in the accreditation process so they try to be present to assist in the implementation of field assessments. In addition, all relevant leaders are also involved in listening directly to input and suggestions from assessors. Through this opportunity, the Rector also informed the existence of Unud along with its infrastructure facilities and future development plans. Related to accreditation, for Study Programs that have been accredited with excellence, they will be directed to increase to international accreditation.

The Rector also appreciated FEB Unud which already has an internationally accredited study program, namely ABEST21 and this year there will be several study programs that are directed to follow the international accreditation of FIBAA. FEB Unud is very popular with the public and the number of student bodies is expected to be increased. Besides that, FEB Unud has also become a pilot project from the Ministry as a WBK integrity zone. In relation to IKU, FEB also contributes, especially regarding student performance and achievements. Hopefully in the future it will be better. Through this opportunity, the Rector also hoped for constructive input from the point of view of assessors for the future development of Unud.

While the Assessor Dr. Abdul Azis Ahmad expressed his appreciation for the reception from the Unud party who was very enthusiastic and actually wanted to attend directly because it was the first time but it was not yet possible. Furthermore, he said that his party was tasked with checking the suitability of the data submitted by the assessor and reconfirming whether it was the same or needed adjustments. The results will be informed to BAN-PT and an assessment will be carried out by the Executive Board. His party will communicate further with the Dean and staff and hope that it will run smoothly and successfully as expected.

Assessor Amirullah Setya Hardi, Ph.D added that through this activity the potential for goodness can be raised so that expectations of international accreditation can be achieved. It also expects assistance in completing the data and interacting as best as possible. This may have been well planned, but sometimes something is missed and the assessor's job is to provide information so that it is good inside and out. During these two days, hopefully there will be no technical problems so that it will bring out the best for FEB and there will be benefits.

The assessment process begins with an explanation from the Dean of FEB Unud Agoes Ganesha Rahyuda, Ph.D regarding the profile of the faculty and the existence of the study program.
