Udinus’ Sharia Economics Strengthens Cooperation with Stakeholder
Seeing the opportunities of sharia banking, the educational institutions open courses that study it more deeply. Understanding the desire of the market, the Sharia Economic Study Program under the auspices of the Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) Dian Nuswantoro University (Udinus) has educated 17 students since 2016.
The Study Program offers two concentrations for students namely Sharia Banking and Sharia Public Finance. "Our study program is more focused in the field of Islamic economy (sharia economy), it studies more deeply about economic in Islam’s point of view," said Dr. Sih Darmi Astuti M.Si as the Head of Study Program.
Sharia Economics continues to improve quality, from teachers and facilities that provided for students. "There are 2 lecturers of this study program who are completing Doctoral Program and the students who are actively participating in various competitions held in various universities and cities," she explained.
The Economic Sharia increases the knowledge by holding public lectures. There are many speakers; one of them is Abdul Ghofur from UIN Walisongo, with the material "Perspectives of Sharia Economics from Theory to Practice."
The Economic Sharia is also in the process of making a Mini Bank. It will be made in 2nd floor of building C, in cooperation with Central of Bank Rakyat Indonesia Syariah (BRIS). Cooperation is expected to improve the quality of students, not only the theory, but also they can practice in the Mini Bank, where students will get software and modules.
For job opportunities, the graduates can explore various jobs. For example, be a practitioner, consultant or researcher in various financial institutions or sharia business, be an entrepreneur. "Our optimism is to be able to run Tri Dharma of Higher Education and be useful for the wider community," closed Sih Darmi. (* PR)
