To obtaining good accreditation, a university not only should have ability to graduate the students, but also to help the alumni find a job as soon as possible after graduated. Therefore, Udinus still continue to provide this kind of program for alumni through IKA Udinus.
"Money is not the main capital in running entrepreneurship. The friends networking also could be the capital," said Cahyanto. The assessor who assesses the implementation of the science, theory, and an employer attitude is society. As Javanese proverb said, ‘adol jeneng jenange katut, adol jenang jenenge durung mesti katut’, a trust is the main capital in entrepreneurship. "The remaining is believe in yourself,” he added.
Andik Setyono, Ph.D., a chairman of IKA Udinus said that IKA formed to tie the alumni who have working and who have not working yet, to apply symbiotic mutualism between the members. (* PR)
