Udayana University (Unud) held its 151st Graduation at the Widya Sabha Auditorium, Jimbaran Unud Campus, Saturday (3/12/22). The graduation for this period was attended by 898 graduates from all faculties within Unud.

Vice Rector for Academic Affairs, Prof. Dr. Ir. I Gede Rai Maya Temaja, MP., IPU, in his report said. The 151st graduation this time came from the Diploma level 1 person, 183 Professions, 60 Specialists, 547 Bachelors (S1), 84 Masters and 23 Doctors. Thus, from the beginning of Udayana University's establishment until now, it already has 113,204 alumni. Of these graduates, 217 received the title of With Praise or Cum Laude. Today's graduates are dominated by women, with a total of 511 people, while only 387 male graduates.

On this occasion, the Vice Rector for Academic Affairs congratulated the graduates and thanked the families of the graduates for the trust placed in Udayana University as a place for the learning process in Higher Education. "Through the education you have taken, you will not only master knowledge but also lead an intelligent life by prioritizing a good personality at work and in society, always having dedication, innovation and collaboration at work. This is the key to success in your life," he said.

Meanwhile, Rector of Unud Prof. I Nyoman Gede Antara on this occasion presented awards to the best graduates from each faculty/specialist and profession.

In his remarks, the Rector said that all graduates had graduated on time, which indicated that the entire lecture process had been running according to set standards. So far, Unud has also implemented a tracing study for all graduates to find out the activities of Unud alumni after completing their education. From tracing the study, it can be seen whether the graduates have worked or not and whether they are in accordance with their talents, competencies and the amount of salary they receive.

"From tracing studies that have been conducted before, most Unud graduates are already working. In fact, Unud also continues to encourage its students to have the mindset of becoming entrepreneurs. This has been instilled since college by opening business incubators, mentoring entrepreneurial curricula and the like. "This aims to broaden the horizons of graduates so they don't only focus on finding jobs but can create jobs," he said.

Unud also continues to strive to upgrade its curriculum to suit the needs of today's increasingly dynamic world of work. His party often asks for input and information from alumni who have worked, regarding what knowledge and competencies are needed, so that Unud can make a curriculum that is more targeted and in line with the needs of the industrial world. To improve the quality of graduates, Unud has also made efforts to collaborate with various parties in order to improve the competence of students so that they are more competitive and more easily seize opportunities in the world of work.

In addition, the Rector also said that Unud is currently transforming into a Legal Entity State University (PTNBH). Through PTNBH, Unud intends to make improvements in the context of governance and empowerment of all assets owned and improve service and quality of higher education at Unud. Through PTNBH, Unud is expected to grow and develop into a higher quality higher education institution in the future. PTNBH is also one of the requirements for Unud to later be able to achieve World Class University status towards a university with international quality and global competitiveness.
